Exterior Paint Maintenance in Davis AreaIf you have made a wise investment in having a quality exterior paint job, it makes sense to take care of it, right? So, you may ask...
What kind of maintenance can extend the life of my exterior paint?
Regular cleaning is one of the best ways to keep your home's exterior paint looking great. Here in the Sacramento area, we may not struggle much with exterior mold and mildew, but it can appear in some cases. More commonly, we see a buildup of dust and contaminants coming from air pollution. Careful power washing of your exterior surfaces will keep your paint looking fresh and bright, rather than dull and dirty.
Caulking is another part of painting maintenance, since caulk can dry and crack with age. Re-sealing your doors and windows with new caulk will help reduce your cooling bill, as your conditioned air is sealed inside. It also keeps out the winter rains, and it improves the overall appearance of the house. While a complete caulking is definitely not needed on a yearly basis, yearly inspections and touch up are definitely recommended for early identification of trouble areas.
Finally, touch up painting is also a good way to prolong the time between complete exterior repaintings. When a specific section of the walls or trim seems to be fading or showing signs of failure, it can be touched up locally, which will keep the home looking great and the paint performing well for an extended time.
