This is a great time of the year for home repair or maintenance projects, especially the exterior painting of your home. While most people paint their house to change the appearance of it or to update their colors there is a far more important reason why you should be concerned with the condition of paint on the exterior of your home. Paint actually acts as a protective barrier against all of the elements that your home weathers. Rain, sunlight, wind and freezing temperatures all have adverse effects on the paint on your home over time. This is why you should inspect the condition of the paint on your home often and take preventive measure at the first sign of trouble. Some of the signs to look for include the obvious, any peeling or flaking paint is a sure sign of trouble because any exposed wood can begin to deteriorate and rot in a short period of time. Other signs include any blistering of the paint and also when the paints color begins to fade. Another thing to also check when inspecting the paint on your home is the condition of the caulk on your home. Any missing or split caulking should also be repaired as soon as possible. Of course the other reason to paint your home is that it also beautifies it. Nothing can change the entire look and feel of a house more than painting it. In the picture that I have posted is a recent painting project completed by Evans Painting which is located in Pelham Al. After the proper repairs and necessary prep work was conducted the home was then painted using a high quality satin paint. The freshly painted home looks brand new and the homeowner was well pleased.
