Economics of In-House Coating

Greater Value

Retail premiums for painted vinyl windows range from $0.5-$1 per united inch (U.I.). The total cost (coating , shipping, labor, overhead) for a Fabricator to paint a typical double hung - 96 U.I., is in the range of $30 (the option could be priced retail at approx. $75, using $0.75 per inch). New construction premiums may be lower. Door coating can provide an even greater value add opportunity.

In any case, the coating cost itself usually represents a relatively small portion of the total cost of the painted product. Using a tested and proven product will ensure your customers will enjoy 15 + years of performance and make coating related service calls unnecessary.

The fact that AquaSurTech OEM provides only water based technology will ensure that the start up investment for the program will be kept to a practical level, and no additional compliance expenses will be incurred.
