Even though there are general guidelines for when you should repaint your home’s exterior, every situation is ultimately different. Maybe your paint is peeling, maybe you’re tired of the colour or maybe you’re getting ready to sell your home. Whatever the case may be, we’ve put together five common signs that it’s time to repaint your home’s exterior
If you’re inspecting the exterior of your home and your notice that the paint is cracking, peeling or bubbling, then it’s best to address it right away. Peeling paint will expose the material underneath to the elements which can cause significant damage if it goes untouched for weeks or months, especially in areas that get extreme weather. Wood siding that is exposed to rain or snow can promote mould growth and mildew to develop and eventually lead to rotting which can be a very costly repair. Once you notice peeling, bubbling or cracked paint, it’s time to repaint.
Caulking is a sealant that surrounds your windows and doors, preventing the elements from invading your home. When small cracks appear in the caulking, it can sometimes be repaired with a fresh application. If you don’t address the cracked caulking quickly, you’re opening the door to moisture and pests into the structure of your home.
Sometimes mould is just a surface issue that can easily be dealt with by using a pressure washer or a bleach solution. If you see any major moisture stains, it could be a sign of a bigger problem. If any of the stains stay in place after you’ve given them a good scrubbing, it’s time to call in the professionals to assess the damage and provide a solution.
Regardless of the weather conditions where you live, the paint on your home’s exterior will inevitably fade after a few years. While faded paint isn’t aesthetically pleasing, it can also leave the material underneath unprotected, resulting in moisture issues if it’s left for too long. Adding a fresh coat of paint will easily remedy any threats while improving your curb appeal.
A common reason to repaint the exterior of your home is that your tastes have simply changed. You may have loved the colour when you first chose it, but now you’re not so fond of it. If you’re feeling this way about your home’s paint colour, it’s probably time to have it repainted to suit your current design needs.
