Beautiful paint, beautiful home.

Painting

Besides enhancing your home's curb appeal, there can be a few reasons that it's time to paint the exterior of your house. While adding value to your property is always a plus, make sure you take into account everything when deciding whether or not you should go ahead and paint.

Moisture. Snow, ice, frost, rain and high humidity can all have a negative impact on paint. Moisture in multiple forms can cause paint to swell and soften, which can lead to blistering, peeling, flaking or cracking. This also adds to risk of mildew. Sun can also cause paint to fade, which will have a negative affect on your home.

Repairs could be needed and you not even know it. You may not notice issues on your exterior until you decide to paint. Wood exposed to weather condition can begin to rot, making a repair turn into a replacement and costing you more money than intended.
