Exterior paint means making necessary repairs too. Before you can paint the outside of any property, there is usually prep work to be done. Exterior prep work can include any or all of the following:
- Scraping off old, peeling paint
- Sanding and priming any bare wood
- Cleaning the surface
- Caulking any cracks in the woodwork and/or stucco or spaces between the siding and trim
- Replacing rotten wood or missing trim
- Fixing any damaged or loose siding or trim
While this may sound like a lot of work in order to get your property ready to paint, it should be considered a good thing! Painting forces you to make repairs that will not only make your property look nicer, but will also keep it in solid condition.
No matter what kind of climate you are in constant and changing weather conditions cause wear and tear on the exterior of your property! A hot, sunny climate will cause paint to fade and peel on the south and west facing sides. A wet climate causes wood to rot at a much faster rate than a dry one. And a climate with lots of freezing and thawing weather will do the most damage to a wooden house (and paint job) as the materials expand and contract with the changing temperature. Depending on your climate, you may need to repaint your property’s exterior every 6 to 8 years in order to help prevent permanent damage. Every year beyond that may cost you an additional $1,000+ per year in additional prep work and the need for more paint.
Re-painting the exterior of your home or commercial space is a major undertaking. Proper prep work of the surface(s) and masking things that aren’t to be painted will swallow much of your free time and days off if you decide to take the do-it-yourself approach.
Instead of slaving away with actually painting and going through the hours of prep work that is often involved with the process, simplify your life and get the best results possible by turning to the assistance of a professional painting contractor. Painting the exterior of your home or commercial property boosts its curb appeal and increases the value!
