With summer on the way, it’s time to think about sprucing up the outside of your house with paint, when there’s little to no humidity. Exterior home projects give you big results while you’re preparing for summer and getting ready for sunshine, cooking out, and get-togethers.
Painting Your Home’s Outside Adds to Curb Appeal
Nothing adds to curb appeal and makes your property really shine like painting your siding. Most homes need to be painted at least a few times. If you have wood siding, you’ll need to repaint it about every 4-8 years. Vinyl siding can be repainted every 8-10 years. Aluminum siding needs refreshed every 5 years.
Why Paint Your Siding?
When you have your siding painted, you’re getting the look of brand new siding, but at a fraction of the cost. Many times, homeowners who have their siding painted often say that their home looks weathered, the siding looks faded, or they can see water damage. We often have people tell us that they want to update their home’s siding color so their home doesn’t look dated: “I want my home to look like it’s new, not from the 1970s.”
The paint used to update homes is exterior paint that is durable and coated to prevent damage from rain, wind, snow, and, of course, sun. It’s also easy to clean, and a thorough power wash will go a long way.
Once you’ve decided on your color, you can choose the finish. Most siding paints are low-reflective colors, but semi- gloss can be added to small areas, such as windowsills, that will make them easy to clean.
