After this particularly cold snowy winter, the exterior of your house will be crying out for some expert pampering! Get ready for some spring exterior painting!
Add Curb Appeal with Exterior Painting
A quality paint job makes your home look well cared for. It is the first indication to whether people living in a house care about the looks and longevity of their home. When you see a house with peeling paint and weather-beaten colors, you get an immediate sense of the decay happening beneath the old paint. Whereas a well-cared for home has an outside that looks fresh and protected from the elements.
Knowing When It’s Time to Paint
You don’t even have to leave your house to inspect the outside paint job. You can start by opening a window and looking at your window trim. Is it weathered? Is it letting rain seep into the wood? Now go outside and just have a close look at the paint around your front door. Does it look protective of the material beneath? Is it fresh looking? Keep inspecting your house as if you were an outsider and try to honestly appraise the status of your house’s exterior. If you don’t know, please don’t worry.
Many people just don’t know when the old paint needs to be refinished! Please feel free to ask a professional painter to come over and show you any trouble spots. A good painter will be able to show you why you need to paint or to show you that the current paint is still good for a few more seasons. Instead of just telling you, they should be able to show you so you can make an educated decision.
A common cause of wood rot is moisture penetration, and professional painters know that preparing and painting wood correctly serves to block out moisture. Not doing this well can lead to the decay of wood’s underlying structure. Problems are multiplied when outdoor paint needs are ignored. It’s a good economic investment to avoid costly wood rot repair and to keep ahead of the game. Please let us know if you would like us to advise you on your exterior paint needs.
