Here are some tips to maintain your house’s exterior paint:
Repaint every six to ten years: Paint does not last forever. If your home’s siding is made of wood, you should repaint it more often than your neighbor who has a stucco siding.The environment also plays a major role in the life of your paint job. Houses in harsher climates may require repainting more often than houses in milder climates. Repainting every six to ten years is advisable.
Regularly clean and power-wash: Elements like dust storms, wind, sleet and snow can impact the condition of your paint job. Cleaning and power-washing your house on a regular basis is very important. Call a painting contractor that provides power-washing services and have your home cleaned properly.
Check for mold and mildew growth: If your house is shaded by large trees, it will be prone to mold and mildew growth. Inspect it on a regular basis to make sure moldand mildew don’t take over your home. As soon as you notice any issues, call a painting contractor immediately.
