A quality exterior paint job seals and protects your home from moisture and mildew, dry rot and other damaging effects from the rain, wind, sun and snow. Between the harsh winters and the hot summers, your building’s exterior suffers more wear and tear from the outdoor weather elements. If not protected properly weather elements can cause your exterior paint to warp, crack and peel.
The actual painting of a home only consists of about 25% of a total paint job. The most important part of panting your home is the preparation work. A good “prep job” can be (and usually is) the difference between painting your home every four years or every nine years. One thing to be sure and ask any painter that comes to give you an estimate is how they prepare a house before painting. It is an easy thing to cut corners on prep and you want to be able to trust that what is underneath your paint is going to hold up well for years to come.
