When Was the Last Time You Painted Your Exterior?
Both residential and commercial property needs refreshing from time to time. One of the easiest ways to keep your exterior looking great is with a new paint job. Depending on the weather conditions, environmental conditions, the quality of your paint job, and the quality of the paint you use, your exterior should be painted every 7 to 15 years. However, time can easily pass without realizing that it has been years since you painted. It seems like suddenly you realize your exterior is looking shabby.
DIY or a Professional?
Even if you are great at painting interiors, you probably want a professional for your exterior painting job. Exterior painting usually means working in difficult conditions. Even a one-story home requires you to get up on a ladder in outdoor conditions. You have to deal with the weather. You have to clean the walls thoroughly for paint to adhere. You must deal with changing weather conditions, fix warped or flaking paint, and handle other challenges for a perfect look. The job is hard and can even be physically dangerous. Professional painters know how to safely, quickly and efficiently handle exterior painting jobs.
