Winter is finally over, and it’s time to start turning your thoughts to taking care of some maintenance and cleaning around the home. While most people generally start with a deep interior cleaning or overdue yard work, there’s a very important part of your home that shouldn’t be overlooked – your home’s exterior paint.
Wintertime is harsh and can do some serious damage to your home’s exterior. The wear and tear caused by rain, sunlight, foggy conditions and temperature changes can slowly damage your home’s paint over time, leaving areas that are peeling, flaking and cracked. Once this happens, moisture can creep into your home’s structure and damage areas of siding or trim. Even if your home’s structure has held up well over the winter, summertime brings about more changes in temperature and increased light exposure, adding increased stress and potential damage to your home’s paint and structure.
Painting your house involves a lot of prep work; fortunately, this is a great way to discover areas of your home that need to be repaired. As we prep your home and remove old paint, we’ll be able to spot areas of damage that may not have been noticeable otherwise. This is the perfect time to fix the damage – before a fresh layer of paint is applied. After the repairs are finished and the new coat of paint is applied, the areas that were repaired will look indistinguishable from the rest of your house!
A fresh paint job isn’t just about protecting the structure of your house – it’s also about curb appeal. New paint can make your home look more attractive and allow you to customize it to better fit your personality and taste; it can also drastically change the look of your home. As a bonus, a new paint job will also increase the resale value of your home!
Finally, spring weather presents optimal conditions for a beautiful paint job. Summer weather can get pretty intense and may affect the consistency of paint. Spring temperatures allow for ideal application of paint with normal drying times and the warmer weather and bright sunlight is perfect for helping the paint fully bond to your home.
