1080 Chestnut Corporation
Selected to the "Top Green Coatings Picks" report for 2008 - by Journal of Architectural Coatings
The THERMO-SEAL® waterproofing solar-reflective coating made by your company that was applied to our 18 stories tall building, at 1080 Chestnut Street has provided everything promised. It has remained looking new for over four years on a highly exposed hill above the salty San Francisco bay. In terms of energy efficiency, it is hard to tell based on the varied weather we get here, but one thing is for certain, no moisture has gotten into our walls since the building was painted with THERMO-SEAL®. We look forward to many more serviceable years despite the rigors of the climate change and its range of weather, which include hot sun, cold with salt fog, and of course lots of strong winds that attack this building every day.
The introduction of your product to our building is thanked each day by the shareholders of 1080 Chestnut.

A water based, low VOC roof system was chosen to aid in the establishment of LEED points, but also to meet the demands inherent in the architecturally free-flowing roof design and need for a cool roof without color white. Your Eco-Therm® Elastomeric top coating in solar reflective color Beige more than met our LEED credit requirements with 72% solar reflectance and became a beautiful and gorgeous finish for the roof, complementing the overall design. Thank you so much for your help and work with us toward our goal to be the first California Public K-8 School to obtain LEED Platinum Certification (2008) and also Green Building of America Award Winner (2009).

It has been four years since 56 of our Association's (fourplex) buildings were painted with the Ultimate Coatings' product, THERMO-SEAL®, and thus far the paint has held up to its claims of durability and coolness. The paint still has its original sheen and the colors seem as vibrant as when it was first applied. Other paints used in the past thirty-seven years began to fade a bit after three years and we always noticed a chalky residue in some areas. This paint still looks fresh.

As promised, I wanted to follow up with you on our own buildings since their exteriors were painted with THERMO-SEAL® and Eco-Therm® coatings. Within days of the completions, we noted a tremendous difference in the interior temperature of the buildings on our typically hot days. In particular, I noted that the surface temperature of the interior walls was cool to the touch, whereas prior to the new coatings, they were quite warm.
Similarly, after our Park Road apartment building was painted with THERMO-SEAL®, I noted that on hot days my own apartment was 10 degrees cooler, and the surface temperature of my interior walls was cool to the touch, even when the sun was hitting the exterior surface.
We are very impressed with your product and want to thank you again for your service to us.

This house used to be very hot in the summer sun. After the Eco-Therm® coating, it has a cozy feeling and even kind of insulated. Certainly it has less of a swing in temperature inside and we do not use air-conditioning here. Thank you! It looks great after 4 years!

The THERMO-SEAL® roof coating has lasted well, looks great and the coating saved the roof.

Our house was built in 1980 with Monier Tile that "lasts forever". Forever lasted 10 years max when it started to disintegrate. The call to Monier was short. Our tiles are not made for Ohio weather-click!
It took a lot of time and money to finally find Ultimate Coatings and we finally had fantastic results.
Our roofer was very impressed. He has used many competitor brands. Ultimate Coatings far outranks the competitors products. Don't Move - IMPROVE and fall in love with your house all over again. Our sincerest thanks to Ultimate Coatings for your personal involvement in our dilemma. Thanks for the miracle transformation!!!!

"We are very pleased with the performance of the THERMO-SEAL® coating done to our old tile roof 5 years ago. It still looks great and almost as if it is new. Thank you!"

“We did both our tile roof and the walls with THERMO-SEAL®. We painted the house in Spring 2011 with the first break in the weather. Looks awesome. My wife is as happy as a clam. We did notice around a 20% reduction in the PG&E bill last summer for cooling, which is the bulk of the bill. That's real money saved since it gets and stays hot here for months. House basically rinses down with a hose due to the nice finish and dirt washes right off, which will lengthen the life of the paint job and save having to pressure wash.”

“Our top floor tenant happily reported immediately lower temperatures in their apartment upon completion of the paint job this past April. Since we have no AC in the building, this is a good thing and part of why we went with your THERMO-SEAL®cool coating!”
