Boost Protection and Curb Appeal

Exterior painting is important because it affects the appearance and the protective barrier of a home. It’s important to continue to tend to your home’s exterior during these times. Paint acts as a deterrent against the elements and rotting. Delaying painting your home’s exterior could lead to costly damages later on.

If you choose to have us paint your home’s exterior now, you’ll get ahead of the pack. Once the shelter-in-place order is lifted, there will be a lot more customers looking for painting services.

1. Protective Coating

The paint on the exterior of your home doesn’t last forever. Due to exposure to high winds, snow, ice, humidity, and heat, paint begins to show signs of aging. Without revamping the exterior now, the paint will continue to peel, crack and blister. When paint begins to crack or peel, water can infiltrate through the surface and cause more damage. This gives mold and fungus the means to grow.

Paint forms a waterproof surface for water to roll off the house surfaces to the ground. It also fills small gaps and holes that could otherwise serve as collection points for water.  Paint keeps out unwanted substances and protects what’s inside.

A new coat of paint can provide immediate protection and prevent costly damage down the road.  Painting your house is one of the most cost-effective ways to avoid expensive repairs. Keeping a house painted is one of the best defenses against premature aging and rotting.

2. Improve Curb Appeal

Maintaining a good exterior appearance is part of the upkeep of a home. Curb appeal is an important term in real estate. If you’re looking to sell later on, repainting the exterior of your home can increase its value and grab the attention of potential buyers. The quickest way to make your home look cleaner and brighter is to paint the exterior.

The color of the existing paint can change over time. The UV rays from the sun can cause fading. The choice of color has the biggest impact on a home’s style and curb appeal.

3. Moderate Temperatures

Whether you need to update the color of your home or want to preserve your home from the elements (or both!), spring is the perfect time to get your exterior painting done. The temperatures are mild which is ideal for the paint to adhere and dry properly. The days are longer, warmer, and dryer.

Paint does not mix well with humidity, moisture, or intense cold. If the temperatures are hot the paint could dry too quickly causing it to blister. If the temperatures are too cold the paint could stain or grow mildew on the surface due to moisture.
