When was the last time that you had an exterior painting update by professional painting contractors?

Is it time for a new paint job? Here are 5 signs that you should update the paint on your home.

Peeling Paint

When moisture gets under your paint, it will start to warm up and cause paint to come loose from your home. You'll notice peeling paint around your house. As the paint continues to come loose, mold and mildew will grow under it. It can also open up the wood underneath to rot. If the paint is peeling, you need to remove it and repaint.

Chalky Residue

Try touching the paint on your home. Do you get a chalky residue on your fingers? The chalk is a sign that the paint has started to deteriorate. As the paint breaks down, it will start to come off of your home. If you notice the chalky residue, it's time for a new paint job.
