 Is It Time to Paint Your San Diego Home’s Exterior? Keep an Eye Out for These Signs of Trouble

Points of damage and decay around your home’s exterior start calling for your attention with a whisper, and end with a yell.

What exactly do we mean?

Well, in other words, it’s easy to ignore small problems that don’t really cause any trouble. A slight crack here, a little fading there... These trouble spots have a tendency to grow bigger fast, however, and suddenly they just won’t (and can’t) be ignored.

To help you proactively care for your home and make the wisest maintenance decisions possible, we’ve put together a few “whispers” to watch for.

6 Clear Signs That Your Home Is Ready for Exterior Painting Services

  • Caulk Breakdown - It’s easy to overlook this stuff! Caulk may not be a visually obvious or exciting component of your property, but it performs an essential role. Acting as a sealant around your siding and trim in particular, it protects against moisture and pest intrusion, while also helping to maintain the efficiency of your home (we’re guessing you want to keep your air conditioned air inside!). Brittle, cracking caulk needs to be replaced right away.
  • Cracked Stucco - For more information about the nature of stucco, which cracks you should be concerned about, and what stucco repairs look like, be sure to click over to this article.
  • Faded Exterior Paint - A high-quality product will hang onto its color integrity longer than cheap, lower-grade alternatives, but eventual fading is inevitable. This is especially true for the sides of your house that experience the most direct exposure to the elements.
  • Spider Cracks - Right before paint failure takes place on a wood surface, it will often form spider cracks. It’s best to call your painting company before actual product failure occurs.
  • Peeling and Chipping - Uh oh... This is more of the yell we mentioned above than a whisper. To keep your home’s surfaces healthy, it’s definitely time to invest in professional exterior painting services.
  • Mold and Mildew - Mold and mildew will speed up your paint’s aging process. Routine pressure washing will serve you well!

Partner with Your House Painter and Ask About Routine Inspections

Finding a trustworthy painting company is invaluable. They can help you set up a maintenance plan, checking for weak spots and damage that need to be addressed. Routine, proactive care is always your most cost-effective option.
