The Long Cold and Rainy winter is about to end in Memphis and it is about time to start putting together your to do list for home improvements. It is very important to prioritize as you make your list, otherwise you could end with a long list of projects that could be overwhelming leading to frustration and to not getting anything done.
A fresh coat of paint on your home’s exterior can be the perfect thing to start with, bringing a wide variety of benefits to you and helping your home in many different ways.
Your home exterior could have been damage throughout the winter!
If your siding and exterior paint aren’t well-maintained, water could be leaking through to the inside of your home. This is why it is so important to periodically inspect the exterior of your home to look for water damages. Look for signs of damage in your siding, such as holes, wood rot, or warping. If caught early enough, you may be able to clean out the wet materials and repair only the affected siding. A well maintained home can prevent water from intruding into the home and last for decades if it well cared for over the years. There are some things to look out for when the weather starts to get warmer. Warped siding can be an early sign of future water damage problem. This warping can usually be seen from the ground and should be looked at before long. Avoiding a repair may lead to cracking of the siding, and intrusion of water into the structure. Once the water gets behind the siding, it is much more likely to damage the framing and interior of the home.
The winter weather can do severe damage to the exterior of your home. Most people don’t understand the wear and tear that rain, fog, sunshine, and temperature changes can bring on your exterior. The constant battering of the elements can slowly eat into the exterior of your home. The weather eats its way through your existing paint and finds its way into your siding and trim pieces. Eventually, all of this can lead to your paint cracking, blistering, flaking and peeling. Even if your exterior has held up throughout the whole winter, summer is coming with extreme heat and sunlight, bringing a whole new wave of pressures to your siding.
A good exterior paint job can provide you with all the repairs that need to do to ensure your home exterior is protected for years to come.
