    Advantages and Disadvantages of Elastomeric Wall Coating

    As a property manager, curb appeal and structural integrity are high priorities. How you choose to maintain your building’s exterior affects both. While it is important that your building looks nice, it means very little if you have to repaint sooner than you should due to peeling, degradation, and water intrusion. This is why you should consider elastomeric wall coatings. Elastomeric coatings will protect your building from the elemental exposure for years to come.

    The Advantages of Elastomeric Wall Coating

    Elastomeric coatings are a high-grade option that can be ten times thicker than paint, but you might not notice the difference visually. This coating offers several advantages, including the following:

    • Watertight
    • Long-lasting
    • More flexible
    • Higher solid content
    • Better warranties

    Elastomeric coatings can work on masonry, concrete, stucco, brick, metal, and other common building materials. It provides a more secure coating that improves weather resistance. With enhanced longevity and material performance warranties, you do not have to worry about repainting every three to five years. Weather changes and structural settling can force paint to stretch, which leads to cracking and peeling. Elastomeric wall coating can not only flex with the building’s changes, but it also has memory to better manage the substantial expansion and contraction our buildings experience in Colorado conditions.

    The Disadvantages of Elastomeric Wall Coating

    For some clients, a major disadvantage to elastomeric wall coating is the initial cost. The higher initial cost comes because of its beneficial aspects over paint, still, it can initially cost up to 25% or more than standard paint. Another disadvantage is that it requires more expertise than your common painter might possess.  Elastomeric is not the right solution for every building, and it requires an expert who understands how to qualify the right application.  We have the expertise it takes to determine your needs and make the appropriate recommendation specific to your property conditions.

    Many of the disadvantages to elastomeric coating come from people attempting to apply it without experience. At Denver Commercial Property Services, we have the correct people, knowledge, and equipment to get the job done right!

    Landscape Benefits of Winter Pruning

    Many property owners tend to pay less attention to their landscapes during the winter months. Aside from snow removal, they may not think maintenance is essential when the temperatures are cold, and the growth has stopped. On the contrary, winter is actually a great time to prune your trees and shrubs.

    Encouraging New Growth

    Flowering shrubs such as forsythia, lilac, viburnum, and others produce more flowers when the wood is young. As these shrubs age, the wood will stop producing as many flowers, and the branches will get thicker and harder to prune. Pruning during the dormant season by removing up to one-third of the oldest and largest stems (canes) will make room for new, more vigorous growth leading to more flowering in the Spring. Essentially, this helps rejuvenate the plant annually, which extends the amount of time you can enjoy it as part of the landscape.

    Avoiding Disruption

    Removing trees and shrubs from your landscape can often disrupt the soil and the surrounding shrubbery. By scheduling this work during the winter when the ground is harder, the chance of turf damage or causing injury to surrounding plant material is reduced. If the removal of a tree, or the pruning of a shrub, does happen to cause damage to a neighboring plant, corrective pruning to repair the damaged roots or above-ground portions and improves the chance of the damaged plant’s recovery.

    Avoiding Insect Infestations

    Some trees and shrubs are more susceptible to disease & insect damage than others, but many of those insects & spreading diseases slow or completely stop in the Winter. If you take care of pruning during the dormant season, you greatly reduce the amount of pheromone the tree may put out attracting certain insects that could carry diseases or fungi and you’re allowing the pruning cuts to dry out a bit before the pruning wound begins to develop new tissue. Certain diseases can spread during the growing season on flowering & fruiting trees as well, so you run the risk of fireblight, a contagious disease-causing bacterium, or other tree bacterium or nectria canker.

    And don’t forget, all trees & shrubs need supplemental watering during Colorado’s dry Winters, at least once a month, from November to April.

    Getting the Process Started

    Denver Commercial Property Services is committed to ensuring your landscape is beautiful at all times of the year. Invest in winter pruning for your commercial landscape by calling 720-770-TREE.
