3 Things to Know About Exterior Painting

There are several things everyone should know about exterior painting:

  1. It’s Not Just About Looks – While your primary reason for exterior painting might be to improve your home’s appearance, that’s not the only reason you should paint it. Exterior paint also protects your home against moisture and the elements. Damage prevention makes exterior painting worthwhile, even if you aren’t that concerned with how your house looks.
  2. The Weather Matters – It’s important to schedule exterior painting when the weather permits it. Keep an eye on the forecast and be ready to reschedule if painting day arrives and it looks like rain or the humidity is too high. You want the paint to be able to dry properly, and your painters wouldn’t want to work in the rain anyway, even if they could.
  3. Preparation Is Everything – The quality of the paint job depends on several factors, including the quality of the prep work. Before exterior painting can take place, you should take care of any repairs that are needed, and your painters should apply primer if necessary.
