Why Loxon XP?
First, the Waterproofing process is making a building or structure waterproof, or water-resistant, so that it remains relatively unaffected by water and resists the ingress of water under specified conditions. Thus, when you must do this, it requires a product that is of high quality to avoid leaks when and where you least expect them.
Furthermore, the Loxon XP is a formula that seals and protects the exterior above the ground foundation from water related damage. With this product, you are not required to prime first, rather, you will apply it directly to the concrete or bricks (as the case may be). Masonry conditioner can be used, but not mandatory.
Additionally, flexibility is a good quality that good waterproof formulas must possess. Loxon XP is a flexible waterproof coating (up to 300%). This, is a very durable waterproofing product that we use here in Jacksonville, FL. regularly.
Great for concrete, cement, concrete block, masonry and stucco.
In 20 plus years, we have only noticed one! When using darker colors here in Jacksonville, Florida it is not as fade resistant as you would think. However, we have developed an iron clad system for combating the fading to ensure color retention. We apply thick coats of the Loxon XP to address any cracks, voids or moisture intrusion problems. Then we apply our final coat using a high-grade acrylic paint. This combo allows for total success!
Since a waterproofing coating is an absolute must to guard against the effects of water, for our concrete, cement, concrete block and stucco, it is also important that we pick the best product available for that purpose. This saves the trouble of spending more, saves the stress of redoing the job in a short time and the risk of having water leaks, when it’s least expected.
Though we have observed 1 con, the pros far supersede. On that note, Loxon XP is a great option for handling waterproofing problems and keeping your exterior looking amazing for many years!
As the years and seasons pass by, so is the roof of your home, which is exposed to sunlight and rain. These natural factors can cause the roof to deteriorate if preventive measures are not utilized.
Uniquely, the roof is what gives coverage to the house and also it is what beautifies and what makes the home structure complete. However, most people are indifferent when it relates to waterproofing and painting their roofs. They wait until the roofs become so bad that the only remedy is to replace it. A wise and less expensive decision is inspecting the roof regularly.
Our Jacksonville commercial painting company renders the best roof painting services for commercial roof painting.
Painting your roof is very important and it's not a DIY affair, it is not something you can attempt yourself. Roof painting needs a high technicality and pro-rated equipment. As a matter of fact, correct safety procedures, and training is needed.
Commercial Painting Contractors will evaluate your roof, troubleshoot any problems, answer questions, recommend products, and methods for your specific roof painting project.
In addition, painting your roof protects it against ultraviolet and infrared heat degradation. The ultraviolet radiation and temperature wavers during the day and at night and in turn have a debilitating effect on roofs. Paint that reflect the sun's ray can keep the temperature of the roof cool and constant, thereby, extending the lifespan of the roof.
Painting your roof with the right roof coating system and re-coating it regularly will seal the entire surface, including small holes and cracks. The result will be waterproofing that will provide long-term protection with minimal maintenance.
Comparatively, not only sunlight, rains, and moisture that cause damage to your roof and shorten the lifespan of roofs, Roofs are also prone to deterioration due to algae, moss, and mold growth. To curb these issues, certain roof paint for roofs, coated with chemicals will inhibit the growth of algae, moss, and fungal growth.
Furthermore, it important to understand and remember that why the roof is many times ignored, is because they are out of sight. Also, the roof is the most important structure of a house and it is important and cheaper to maintain it than replacing.
All things considered, the outer layer of the roof is what determines if your roof is a traditional or a cool roof. Nonetheless, regardless of the roof type, painting a reflecting coating system is the most efficient way of converting your traditional roof into a cool roof.

Protecting the exterior wood from the elements requires some effort due to the vulnerability of wood and several factors. Even if your exterior wood is a hardwood and pressure-treated, the proper maintenance and care will make it stay in top functional shape for many years.
Two major ways of preserving exterior wood are staining and sealing. However, to protect exterior wood efficiently, there are also different types of paints and waterproofing methods for maintaining different types of wood.
Types of Coatings for Wood
1. The Exterior-grade Penetrating Stain
This is the most popular type of exterior wood coating. It contains water-repellent preservers which always contain a mildewcide to protect against the growth of mildew and UV light absorbers, which guard against exposure to the sun. It is available in water-based and oil-based formulations. It contains resins in the formulations, which enter the pores of the wood to add pigment and resist the harmful effects of the weather but permit the texture and woodgrain to show.
2. Film-forming Sealant
This sealant bonds to the wood’s surface like shellac or paint. This product type offers a highly glossy furniture finish and allows the natural woodgrain to show through. It is available in water-based and oil-based finishes. This type of coating leaves the wood with a lasting attractive, satin surface.
Note: that the exterior wood coatings are made with either oil or water. The oil-based finishes usually have small bits of resin and pigment that fuse together and form one big substance like a sheet. The water-based sealants or stain have resin and pigment that attach to one another as the finish dries.
Condition of Exterior Wood to be Preserved
1. New Wood
In an attempt to preserve your exterior wood, allow the freshly pressure-treated wood to dry prior to sealing or staining it because the wood is likely to still be "wet" from waterborne preservatives applied to the lumber. Therefore, leave the wood to dry for four to six weeks before using coatings on it.
2. Wood with Old Stain
First, remove the old stain before applying new stain if you are changing the colors or products. The old stain has a way of showing through the newly applied stain leaving blotchy spots in the finish. But if you are not changing color or product, you can clean the surface thoroughly before adding fresh coats.
3. Weathered Wood
Exposure of wood to sunlight causes the wood fibers to be damaged by the ultraviolet rays after some time. To get a fresh appearance, pressure-wash or sand the surface. While sanding is difficult and takes a longer time, pressure-washing is faster but make the wood surface to splinter or fuzz.
Preserving exterior wood could be complicated, but you can avoid the trouble by hiring a professional painting company and make your exterior wood last longer.
