Painting your home’s exterior is a good investment. Not only will it improve curb appeal and your home’s overall aesthetics, it will also help protect your home from the harsh elements and improve resale value. Keystone Painters in Vancouver shares tell-tale signs and reasons your house needs a new coat of paint:
Flaking and cracking paint.
There are lots of things that can cause your paint to crack, flake or bubble. Strong sunlight, wet winters and extreme humidity can contribute to the damage. Since your paint is the first defense against these elements, having a fresh coat of paint is critical to protecting your home and preventing water damage.
Fading or discoloured paint.
If you have a south facing wall, you might notice that your darker paint can start to fade from being in the sun. If you’ve noticed that shady areas are fading it might mean you have a problem with your vapor barrier or there is a water leak. If you can’t pinpoint the problem, contact and expert before that damage gets worse. If the paint is just fading or morphing because of UV rays, make sure it is repainted using an exterior grade paint that can withstand the effects of UV.
If you have noticed softness in areas of your wood siding or trim, this must be addressed as soon as possible before the problem gets worse. First, repair the areas that has rotting wood. Once that is done, call in the pros at Keystone Painting. They will fill all the holes and imperfections to protect from moisture, apply primer if necessary and a beautiful coat of protective exterior paint.
