When is it time to paint my exterior?
If you are experiencing any of the following conditions it is
time to call Dan Brady Painting and Wood Restoration for an estimate.
- Fading Paint
Over time and exposure to the elements, all paint
will fade. Sides
of houses that are exposed to sunlight, wind and rain will fade
faster than the sides of houses that are in the shade.
To address this problem, Dan Brady Painting and Wood restoration uses only
the highest quality paints and stains. Although
all brands will fade over time when exposed to direct sunlight,
the less expensive paints and stains will fade much faster than
the high quality products that we use.
- Chalky Siding
As paint breaks down, the pigment “chalks” or separates
from the paints binder. Excessive chalking can lead to
colors fading, paint erosion and stains. Cheap paint, poor
surface preparation and exposure to harsh elements are often
To address this problem, Dan Brady Painting and Wood
Restoration cleans and pressure washes the house prior to applying
the coating. Pressure
washing removes the chalky residue and gives the coating a stable
surface to adhere to.
Causes of mildew vary. Neighboring homes
with mildew problems can act as a breeding ground, spreading
the fungus to your house. Shrubbery to close to your home
provides an attractive place for mildew to grow on your siding. Leaks
around your roof, chimney, windows and doors can trap water behind
your siding causing mildew to form when the moisture is escaping
through the siding.
To address this problem, Dan Brady Painting and
Wood Restoration kills the mildew with a bleach and water mixture
prior to the coating application.
- Peeling & Cracking Paint
All woods expand and contract,
often causing brittle paint to crack and peel.
To address this problem
Dan Brady Painting and Wood Restoration removes any brittle or
cracked paint prior to painting the house. Then
we apply 100% acrylic latex coating that is able to expand and
contract with changing temperatures so the coating won’t
crack or peel.
Fading paint, chalky siding, mildew and peeling paint can all
lead to a less than desirable curb appeal for your home. If you are experiencing any of these issues it is time to give
us a call. Rest
assured you will find that we have the capabilities to take care
of any of your painting/staining needs. We are looking forward
to putting our high quality craftsmanship to work for you.
