A wall with peeling paint which are very hard to miss – spidery cracks, holes in the paint surface, even large strips or sections of painting that come off on their own – can be an unsightly mess in a home, causing a homeowner embarrassment and frustration which detracts the overall home appeal? Give it a fresh lick of paint and make it attractive again!
Most painting professionals blame paint peeling problems on poor prep work which is sometimes the case. However, even the best routine of cleaning, scraping, sanding and priming won’t stop paint from peeling if water gets into exterior or interior of your home. For this reason, inspect and repair peeling areas annually.
First, annual maintenance stops localized peeling and keeps it from spreading. Your home will look better, and you’ll protect the vulnerable raw wood from rotting.
Second, the cost of whole-house repainting will be lower when it comes, because you’ve kept the exterior in good condition from time to time. It won’t require much prep time.
And third, the paint that’s in good condition on your home will last longer, because with longer painting cycles it won’t build up as fast. Thicker paint loses its flexibility and cracks more easily, eventually leading to peeling paint. When the paint gets that bad, you’ll have the huge job of stripping it all off and starting over.
If you don’t have enough time to do the annual maintenance yourself, you’ll still come out ahead if you hire a pro for a day or two every year to fix the problems and that where we come to save the day in providing professional painting services!
