Residential house in Beringe (NL)

At the address Hoogstraat 47 in Beringe (L), the homeowner and master painter Thijs Martens coated the roof tiles in black and the façade in white in 2016. Consumption values for heating energy are not yet available, but there are initial experiences: “The uninsulated attic is no longer so very cold in winter” and “Our heating only needs 30 minutes to go from 17°C to 20°C when we arrive home. Before ClimateCoating® it took 1.5 hours”. The exterior walls are a double-shell construction with air gap and so-called half bricks as clinker shell. The significantly shorter heating times and slower cooling down have an energy-saving effect.

Durability, comparison to a glaze

The White House in Washington D.C. has not (yet) been coated with ClimateCoating®. This is a wooden house in Spremberg near Cottbus. The photos are from November 2005, the report from 2006. The coating was applied in September 2000, when the building was in a pitiful condition. The surface of the wood was already heavily attacked because it had been exposed to the weather for years without protection.

Mosses, fungi and lichens had settled on the damp ground. Therefore, a thorough pre-treatment of the substrate was necessary. By coating with ClimateCoating® a considerable renovation success could be achieved. The wooden parts were actively dehumidified so that the structure could solidify again. In addition to the attractive appearance, it can be noted that since the coating with ClimateCoating® no infestation with microorganisms such as algae, fungi, lichens or mosses has occurred.

For the homeowners, the investment has paid off in full, especially since everyone can see how much effort the neighbour has to put into maintaining his brown glazed house (on the left in the picture) year after year. At the White House, on the other hand, maintenance of the facade coated with ClimateCoating® is not yet necessary. When coated with ClimateCoating®, every fibre structure of the wood can be recognised, so that the natural impression is retained. Nevertheless, with 0.3 mm a long-term protection is given. The protection against microorganisms is practically toxin-free, which distinguishes ClimateCoating® strikingly from other facade coatings. It is not only economical in use, but also ecological. No re-coating has been required since September 2000. (03.01.2006).
