Corkshield vs. Paint

Why choose Corkshield over Paint? There are many reasons to consider Thermal Coatings before painting your house. Your home is your investment so why wouldn’t you choose the best, safest and the most natural way to protect your home? Here are just a few reasons why you should consider Corkshield over Paint.

  • Thermal Break greatly enhancing your insulation qualities
  • Impact & Fade Resistance
  • Fire Retardant
  • Mold and Salt Resistance
  • Noise Dampening
  • 10-year Warranty
  • 100% Natural Product

Standard Paint cannot offer any of these qualities and you can expect to re-paint exterior surfaces every 2 to 5 years.  Paint fades 15-20% each year and degrades heavily under environmental conditions.  In general, paint is not efficient and much harder on the environment than Corkshield. Why not choose a product that benefits you, your home, and is environmentally friendly.


Corkshield vs. Stucco

When considering Stucco for your home, you also need to consider the value and the protection that it offers. Some people are simply attracted to the look and elegance of Stucco; however, most people are not aware that in order to keep your Stucco in good condition, a good amount of maintenance is required which can get expensive. Stucco also gets very hot and cold which transfers directly into the interior walls due to the porosity of the product.  With Thermal Coatings, you get the protection and insulation that you need and want. Here are a few advantages on why you should choose  Thermal Coatings over Stucco.

  • Thermal break greatly reducing the transfer of hot and cold temperatures through exterior walls
  • Existing Insulation is optimized to it greatest potential
  • Impact & crack resistant
  • Fade resistant
  • Fire Retardant
  • Mold and Salt Resistance
  • Noise dampening
  • 10-year Warranty
  • 100% Natural Product

Just like the way stucco looks? Corkshield greatly resembles Stucco in appearance and gives you many more advantages for your home.  Corkshield can be applied directly over existing Paint or Stucco finishes and offers you all these amazing benefits.  There really is no comparison when you dig into the details!  Contact us today for a FREE Consultation.

“Why Choose Thermal Coatings

Thermal Coatings has revolutionized the insulation market and can provide your home or office with a wide range of remarkably beneficial features. Thermal Coatings is the most environmentally friendly insulation product in the industry – the processes of sourcing, manufacturing, and applying the product has no negative impact on the environment. Due to its enduring dependability, Thermal Coatings delivers consistent results that will last a lifetime.

Thermal Insulation

Thermal Coatings is a natural thermal barrier that protects your home or office from the heat and cold, keeping the indoors cool in the summer and warm in the winter. A natural property of cork is that it will never go below 32° F or above 86° F.


Thermal Coatings is extremely resistant to harsh conditions, only fading 1%-2% annually, as opposed to the 5-10% average that comes with traditional paint and stucco. A natural property of cork is its ability to never reach a freezing point even after being submerged in liquid nitrogen.

Flexibility & Elasticity

Our product has exceptional elastic properties allowing it to expand and contract depending on the weather conditions. It will not chip or crack, unlike stucco or paint. Its flexibility also allows the capability to recover the initial volume after experiencing deformation.

Fire Retardant

Cork is a natural fire retardant material that slows or stops the spread of fire or reduces its intensity. Thermal Coatings has an ASTM E84-14 Class B Fire Rating.

Acoustic Insulation

Our product is guaranteed to make your home or office quieter by sufficiently absorbing sound from the outside. It can also reduce echoing, making Thermal Coatings an ideal insulation product for music studios.

Mold & Mildew Resistant

Thermal Coating is water-resistant, preventing moisture from penetrating the surface while allowing it to breathe. This natural property is laboratory-proven to prevent mold or mildew growth.

Salt Penetration

Our product allows for minimal salt penetration, which protects your home or office from damage.

Energy Efficiency

The thermal barrier our product creates keeps the elements from entering indoors, reinforcing indoor temperature regulation and significantly reducing your energy bills.


Thermal Coatings do not shed or deteriorate over time and can be applied without messy renovations. Our product is ideal and safe to use for those who suffer respiratory sensitivities.

Eliminates Maintenance

Our proprietary formula allows our insulation product to keep the outdoor elements outside, hold its shape and color, and protect your home or office for many years to come.

Improved Home Exterior

Thermal Coatings comes in many stock colors, and we have the ability to mix custom colors, which can revitalize and transform the look of your home or office. Since cork is low in density and very light, there are no structural concerns to worry about.


Thermal Coatings are such a revolutionary product that many countries are now planting new cork trees for cultivation. Cork production increases the number of cork trees in the world.

Cork Is a Renewable, Eco-Friendly Resource

Thermal Coatings is an environmentally friendly, insulating spray-on product derived from the bark of a cork tree. Cork bark grows very thick and abundantly and naturally regrows when harvested. The extraction process causes a large amount of oxygen to be released into the environment, benefiting the air we breathe. No trees are cut down to make our product. The process of sourcing, manufacturing, and applying Thermal Coatings is done without any environmental impact, and the cork tree will last for hundreds of years.
