When most people think about the paint on the outside of their home, they think of the aesthetics of it. While it does boost your home’s curb appeal, the exterior paint on your house does a lot more for your house too. It offers protection against all the elements that could potentially harm your home without it being painted. Ciarlanti Painting – Jeff The Painter is here to talk about the different ways your paint works to protect your home.
Paint Blocks Moisture
When you have a home that is built out of wood, it can soak up moisture with the best of them. When you have a high quality paint on your siding, your home has the protection it needs from the moisture that your house is sure to come in contact with. This can protect your home against the rot that moisture almost always causes. Exterior paint has several weather protection components built into them so that your home will have the protection it needs.
Reduced Risk of Mold & Mildew Growth
This links to the paragraph previous, but when you have your home painted and have the protection you need from moisture, you don’t have to worry about mold and mildew growth on the exterior of your home. There are certain molds that can be extremely dangerous to your health and wellness. Not only that, but mold can be destructive as well. If it goes unchecked, you could have to replace sections of your siding because of the damage caused. Mold can be an expensive problem that you definitely don’t want to have anywhere near your home.
Exterior Painting Prevents Bug / Insect Damage
Many people don’t realize what painting your home can do to protect it from destructive pests. Pests like termites and carpenter ants can get into your home by any means necessary. It usually happens through cracks. When you have a professional painter paint the outside of your home, those cracks will get sealed as the caulking is applied around all the doors and windows of your home. Caulking starts to deteriorate over time, so it is important to have the professional painting company seal up those cracks with new caulking before painting. Preventing pests can save you tens of thousands of dollars in property damage.
