How To Keep a Paint Job Looking Great!

 How To Keep a Paint Job Looking Great!

Here are just a couple of ways to keep you paint job looking great:

1) Keep The Painted Surfaces Clean: We all know that keeping your car garaged and washed regularly will keep the paint job looking new. If a car is kept outside, uncovered and not washed often, the paint job will fail. Rinsing off the the exterior of your home on an annual basis will keep salt and dirt from damaging your paint job. On interior painted surfaces, use non-abrasive cleaners to wipe down the surfaces as needed.

2) Free Inspections: Make sure the painting company you hire provides a free inspection. Depending on what was done, an inspection should be done every 1 to 3 years. If you do not have a coastal property, you can wait 3 years. A professional company will put it in their file to contact you, so you do not have to worry about it. Inspections are good, because if there is a slight issue, it can be dealt with right away and therefore, save you money and time.

3) Touch Up Rather Than Repaint: When your home is in need of a complete repaint, make sure you spend the time and money the first time to do a very thorough prep job and apply two coats of a quality paint. There are the rare cases that may require one coat, depending on the existing surface and condition. After a home has been properly painted, we recommend that you touch-up the sun exposed areas every 2-3 years. This is not an expensive task and can save you thousands of dollars by not having to completely repaint your home in 5-10 years. By maintaining the areas that get the most moisture or sun exposure, you will avoid major sanding and prep in the future. Chism Brothers Painting helps our clients accomplish this task with our Painter For a Day program. People hire us sometimes just to do touch-ups and or maintain the quality appearance of their homes without fully repainting all the surfaces. This way, it keeps the home always looking sharp.
