If you are not sure about whether it is time to have your house painted, here are some factors worth considering:

  1. Signs of Damage – Does your home’s exterior show signs of damage from constant exposure to the elements? If so, it is probably time to schedule a professional paint job. Signs to look for include faded and peeling paint, cracked stucco, cracked caulking, shrinking boards, and gaps between the boards.
  2. Problems that Professional House Painting Can Fix – Once you detect the signs of damage, keep in mind that many of these issues can be fixed with careful exterior painting.  It can help to reverse problems such as peeling, chalking, dry rot, and blistering surfaces. Other unsightly damage issues that painting can fix are mildew, discoloration from rust, and paint that is flaking, cracking, or shrinking. Some of these issues might simply be due to exposure to the elements. In other cases, they could be the result of a paint job that was not done properly the first time.
  3. Benefits of Exterior House Painting – New paint provides an effective barrier between your home’s surface and the elements. Your building structure needs this sort of protection from the sun, wind, snow, hail, and rain, as well as extreme temperatures. Our crew will implement the right kind of prep work, so the new paint will endure for as long as possible. If you are planning to sell your home, a new paint job will add greater curb appeal. If you are going to continue staying in your home, getting it painted will make it more appealing to you, your guests, and your neighborhood.
