Quality First Home

When buying a property, some individuals repaint it solely to change the color, while others repaint it right before they sell it to make it look better from the outside. However, if your home is stained, you should have it painted every 4 to 7 years and every 5 to 10 years. The impacts of salt air on homes along the shoreline cause painting to be required more frequently. The quantity of preparation work (sanding, scraping) and the caliber of the paint utilized the last time are a couple of aspects that affect how long your present paint job will last. Peeling could be brought on by indoor moisture if your home is poorly insulated and has a poor moisture barrier. Your paint work will suffer if your gutters leak or if the caulking around your pipes is splitting and leaking. If the paint’s weather protection is starting to break down, siding may shrink, fracture, or start to cup, and nails may burst.

Stain makes it possible to view the wood’s drying out process. Direct sun exposure can cause paint to turn chalky or fade. Low-quality paint with little pigment can start to take on multiple colours with time and exposure to the sun. If stucco isn’t painted every 5-7 years, it can start to crack and even come off the home in parts. In order to stop damage from occurring in the first place, many individuals develop the habit of painting their homes every 5-7 years, much like you would change the oil on your automobile.

For exterior painting we use an Alkyd / oil hybrid primer and a latex top coat. For solid stains we use latex based stain and oil for semitransparent stain. We use oil enamel paint for metal railings. Exterior oil-based paints were outlawed years ago so at this point nobody uses them. For interior paint we use latex top coats, alkyd / oil primer (or latex primer as well). Depending on the situation the interior top coat can be oil as well.

We always verify, and it’s extremely easy for us to do so. We brush a 3M lead check swab on the surface, and if it becomes red, lead is present. The EPA keeps a phone number you can call with questions if you have particular inquiries concerning lead paint: 1-800-424-LEAD

Several elements influence this choice. We utilize the best paint available, made by Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore, for the outside, including a very thick primer and top coat. One coat of each can do the trick whether you want to stay in the same color or just a shade off. We apply two coats of exterior paint if the color will vary significantly. Unless you insist on only one application and the wood isn’t too dry, stain treatments require two coats. On occasion, we’ll apply two coats on the sunny side of the house and just one elsewhere, but generally, we advise using two. Two thin coats of paint are always used when painting over aluminum or vinyl siding.

If there are no freezing conditions the night before, the exterior paint and primers we use are rated for 35 degrees or warmer. We often only like painting when the temperature is 42 degrees or higher.
