Painting The Exterior Of Your Home


Ensuring that the exterior paint of a home is being properly maintained can be one of the single most important steps in preserving the appearance of the home. As part of this, aging layers of paint may need to be replaced. While this is a large undertaking, there are professional painting contractors that will be able to handle the bulk of this labor for you.

Can The Color Of The Paint Impact Your Home's Efficiency?

Choosing the color of the paint for your home's exterior can be a choice that has surprisingly important energy efficiency impacts. For example, a home that is painted a darker color is far more vulnerable to absorbing large amounts of heat from the sun's rays of light. This can have the effect of causing the interior of the home to experience significant heating. Conversely, light colors will require more frequent cleanings in order to keep them looking their best. Balancing these competing needs can be a challenge that requires a homeowner to consider the unique environment where their home is located.

Will Painting The Home's Exterior Be Disruptive For Those Living Inside It?

Painting the entire exterior of a home will be a major project, but the actual impacts that this work has for those living in the house will actually be fairly minimal. This is due to the fact that the painting contractors will be able to limit their work to the exterior. Furthermore, professional painting contractors will have the tools and experience needed to ensure that the painting work is completed as rapidly as possible. Generally, a moderate-sized home may only need a few days to have its entire previous coat of paint removed and a new one applied.

What Should You Do If The New Coat Of Paint Becomes Scratched?

Unfortunately, there is a chance that the new coat of paint could suffer damage at some point or another. To preserve the appearance of your home, you may think that scratches and other minor paint damages will require the entire home to be repainted in order to correct. However, a professional painting contractor will be able to smoothly repair damaged paint by patching it. As long as the patch that is used is properly matched to the current layer of paint, this type of repair can be indiscernible for most people that will see the home. Branches rubbing against the home's exterior can be a common reason for the exterior paint to suffer scratches. If you notice this damage, you should make sure to trim the branches far enough away from the home so that they can not reach it to leave scratches.
