Exterior Painting and Touchups

Painting your home exterior can be an exciting, refreshing event. Exterior paint tends to fade, chalk and break down with exposure to the weather, but a fresh coat of paint will get everything looking crisp and attractive. Even if your siding is in good shape, it can be very helpful to periodically touch up your trim and any trouble spots.

In an effort to save money, homeowners often try to go as long as possible between coats of exterior paint. This might not provide the best overall value, however, since painting over old paint can require far more surface preparation. If your old paint is cracked, peeling, bubbling or failing in other ways, your painting contractor will need to spend a great deal of time scraping, cleaning and filling. The surface is also likely to require more coats.

The best method of getting maximum value out of your exterior painting is to perform yearly paint maintenance. A.G.
