You drive up to your house every day when you are coming home. It is the first thing people see when they show up to your house. You want to make sure the exterior part of your house looks nice. So, how do you know if your house is ready to be repainted? What are the signs? Some signs are pretty obvious, but some signs are ones that you need to get fixed and have them done correctly before you can repaint the house. L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc. presents them below.
Peeling House Paint
When you start seeing the paint on your house start to bubble or crack this is a great sign that your paint is going to start to peel. Peeling paint is not good. Peeling paint happens because that part of your house has been more exposed to the rain, snow, and sun. If your house has peeling paint on it anywhere, that is a great sign your house is ready for a paint job. You will also want to make sure you paint your house when it starts to peel because if your house has peeling paint it can get mold or mildew growing in the peeling area.
Too Hard Caulk
Your caulk should not be hard. Caulk should contract and expand with the house. When the caulk is exposed to the outside weather it starts to lose the ability to contract and expand. It will start to get hard and then with rain and snow it can start to affect your house. You will need to caulk your house again and then repaint the whole exterior.
Fading Exterior Paint Color
Your paint color on your house will fade over time, it just happens. It will fade from the sun and weather hitting it all the time. But when your paint starts to fade it cannot protect your house as well as it once did. Faded paint needs to be repainted not just because it makes your house look better. You want it also for the protection it provides to your house
Damaged Wood & Stucco
If you find rotten wood on your house or stucco that has a large crack you need to get them fixed. You can patch the stucco or repair the wood that is damaged. Once you get that fixed then you should repaint your house. repainting the whole house will make the house look better than just one section that has new paint on it.
Stains & Mold on House
Stain and mold can be dangerous things. It can do serious damage to your house. If you have moisture stains or mold on your house don’t just paint over it. You need to call a professional to come to take a look at it and make sure your house isn’t getting serious damage.
