There are many reasons to give your home a fresh coat of paint. From providing your exterior with a fresh look or new aesthetic to getting it ready for a sale, the reasons to paint your home’s exterior are almost limitless. 

But did you know that a fresh coat of high-quality paint, properly implemented onto your home can actually protect your exterior from harsh weather conditions and even pests? In today’s blog, let’s explore how professional painters, using premium paint and techniques, can prevent weather and insect damage through a simple exterior painting project.

Weather Protection – Keeping Moisture Out

Moisture. It seems like there’s always too much of it, and it’s barely ever great for your home. During the hot, muggy, and humid days of summer, the snow-covered days of winter, or the various storms that strike New England regularly, you’ll want to make sure that moisture stays OUT of your home, including your exterior surfaces. 

When moisture seeps into your wood, it can slowly wreak havoc upon the structural integrity of your home. If left unchecked for too long, it can become a very costly, stressful, and time-consuming fix — all of which is entirely preventable. Moisture can also allow the build-up of nasty mold and mildew, and no one wants that.

When professionally or competently applied, a new coat of high-quality paint can block up any peeling, chips, or cracks where moisture has the opportunity to build up or invade your house. While it’s not the solve-all for letting the outdoor weather, water, mold, and mildew into your home, it’s an excellent frontline defense.

Keeping The Creepy-Crawlies Away!

The ultimate never-ending battle — keeping bugs out of your home. As with moisture and weather, proper exterior paint is one of the best methods for residential pest control, keeping bugs where they belong – outside and away from your house.

Whether you decide to enlist the help of professional painters or to DIY your home’s exterior, making sure to check on and seal up any cracks or openings is one of the best ways to prevent pests from entering your home. Aspects of your exterior, such as caulking can deteriorate over time and needs to be checked on a regular basis. 

Professional painters will make sure to check for all cracks, caulking deterioration, or unwanted tiny openings in your home and fill those openings with the proper paint, sealant, or caulking.
