Maintenance and Longevity

A stunning paint job is an investment in your home's future. To ensure your new colors stand the test of time (and the summer sun), we provide tips on maintaining your exterior's vibrancy and protecting it from the elements.


Tips for Home Paint Maintenance

  • Regular Cleaning: Gently wash your painted surfaces annually to remove dirt, grime, and mildew. This prevents buildup and maintains the paint’s appearance.

  • Timely Touch-Ups: Address chips, cracks, or peeling areas promptly to prevent water infiltration and further damage. Early intervention can extend the life of your paint job.

  • Quality Paints Matter: Invest in high-quality exterior paint with UV protection and mildew resistance. These paints withstand harsh weather conditions better and fade less over time.

  • Proper Preparation: Ensure surfaces are properly prepared before painting. This includes cleaning, sanding, and priming as necessary. Good prep work is key to paint adhesion and longevity.

  • Avoid Direct Sunlight During Application: Paint applied in direct sunlight can dry too quickly, leading to poor adhesion and longevity issues. Schedule painting for cooler parts of the day or in shaded areas.

  • Gutter Maintenance: Keep gutters clean and in good repair. Water overflow can damage paint on your home’s exterior walls and eaves.

  • Trim Vegetation: Ensure trees, shrubs, and other plants are trimmed away from your home. This reduces moisture accumulation on painted surfaces and minimizes the risk of damage and mildew growth.

  • Inspect Seals and Caulking: Regularly check and repair caulking around windows, doors, and other openings. Proper sealing prevents moisture penetration and paint deterioration.

  • Professional Inspections: Consider periodic inspections by professional painters to assess the condition of your paint job and perform any necessary maintenance.


For larger projects or commercial properties, our Commercial Painting services offer the same attention to detail and quality, ensuring your business stands out for all the right reasons.
