If you start noticing obvious signs of damage such as peeling, cracking, and bubbling, it probably means that it is time for a new and fresh coat of paint. Typically, when you notice these issues, it means one of two things; Either the paint job wasn’t good enough from the very beginning causing early damage or it has been affected by other external factors such as water, wind, UV rays, and other elements that could have caused the paint to crack and peel. Sometimes peeling and cracking paint signifies an even bigger problem with mildew, rotting wood, dry rot, or even mold so don’t just turn a blind eye to such signs.
Compared to most paint products, caulking is less durable and has a shorter shelf life, especially when used on the exterior of a home that is constantly exposed to the elements. If you notice that the caulk work around the edges of siding, between trim pieces, and in other areas, is beginning to show signs of age such as crumbling and cracking, it might be time to re-caulk and repaint the entire exterior. This should help prevent various issues such as water damage to the siding and help you add a layer of protection to your home’s exterior with a fresh coat of paint and a new application of high-quality, durable caulk that will seal the gaps and protect the finish.
If there was an opportune moment to repaint your house, it would be when you’re planning to sell. Even if there aren’t any obvious signs of damage you should always repaint a house before selling. It improves the curb appeal of the house and also increases its value meaning you can get a lot more from the sale than if you just sold it without exterior painting. You’re likely to attract more buyers and also put you in a better position during price negotiations as that is one thing the buyers can’t use to try and get a lower price.
While faded jeans might be the new trend in fashion, fading paint is not a good thing. We understand that sometimes it can be hard to notice fading paint as it happens gradually, but as a homeowner, you can tell when your paint job doesn’t look as fresh anymore. It helps when you take a picture of the walls as soon as the painting has been done. That way, you have a reference point on what your paint should look like. Depending on the quality of paint used, it can take about four to six years for the paint to start fading. Therefore, if it has been that long since you last repainted your house, you can just pull out the picture of the original and compare it against the current state. Another way to determine fading is if certain rooms in the house (particularly those that don’t get much sunlight exposure) look a lot brighter than others.
All building materials, regardless of the quality standards, are vulnerable to sunlight, wind, and rainwater in one way or another and they will eventually succumb. Once you start seeing shrinkage of wood or trim pieces, gaps in siding, or other related issues that make the house appear unkempt and needing a repair, it’s a good sign that it’s due for a new paint job. Like with caulk work, it is almost meaningless to just fix the damage or paint over what’s there. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain when you give your house a good once-over, fix gaps and fill holes, and repaint everything for a fresh, cohesive look. As soon as you start noticing any of these signs, make the point to start looking for a painting contractor.
