Exterior Painting Services
So, it’s time to paint the exterior of your house. This is one of the many expensive pains to owning a house and one that homeowners have to undergo every 6-8 years, depending on your home and siding.
First, determine if there is any prep work that needs to be done prior to painting.
Do you have any rotted siding, window sills, hand railing, or window and door trim? Make sure you take this opportunity to deal with these issues prior to painting. Many times paint companies have experience in this area and can provide a quote that includes replacing your siding and trim.
However, if your project constitutes replacing a substantial amount of siding you may want to call a siding pro. Make sure the painter or carpenter replacing your siding is using the same style and size you presently have.
Second, choose if you want to take this opportunity to change the color of your home. Revising the color can bring new spice to your home.
When evaluating what colors to use, make sure that they fit into your neighborhood as well as colors that already exist.
For instance you already have a roof, plants, landscaping, a foundation, and a driveway present. These all have colors that need to be taken into account when trying to compliment your home to its surroundings.
Third, consider if you want your home hand brushed or sprayed. If you leave it to Mr. Moles Painting Company to decide you will most likely have it sprayed because it is faster and easier. However, if you have an older home, wood siding, or it has been a while since your last painting you may want to consider asking for a quote that includes painting by hand. The hand brushing application will provide a thicker coat and gets the paint deeper into the wood and crevasses, ensuring that you have protection from water penetration.
Never underestimate the impact a fresh, clean coat of paint can make to the outside of your home! It doesn’t matter if we’re working with stucco, brick, wood siding, vinyl, cedar shingles, or wood trim.
