Painting to SELL your HomeDecember 14, 2015
Everybody complain at one time or another about the stress they’re under. Similarly, your homes can be affected by the constant stress. Certainly it isn’t work pressure, monetary restrictions, or family issues that cause problems for your homes. Rather, it’s the harsh weather and the environment that silently place stress on your home. Even the everyday weather conditions like scorching sun, rain, and temperature fluctuations place stress on your living place as well as on the exterior paint that protects your home.
Listed below are the descriptions how even the ordinary weather condition can put stress on your paint and cause it to suffer:
While most folks are happiest on sunny days, the same bright sunlight can cause problems on exterior paint. This is because the ultraviolet rays of the sunlight tend to distort the binder in exterior paint, like the same way that they can harm the skin on human bodies. Extreme sunlight can break down paint’s binder and the pigment is released in the form of a powder or chalk that can wash away in the next rainstorm. As a result, the exterior paint starts to fade away and the protection for the home exterior gets diminished due to the paint erosion.
Certain weather conditions like rain, snow, ice, frost, and even high moisture can also be problematic for exterior paint. Moisture in any form in the air can cause exterior paint to soften and swell. This is a deadly situation for the exterior paint since it eventually leads to blistering, cracking, peeling, and flaking. Furthermore, moist weather condition supports the unusual growth of ugly mildew on the surface.
Constant temperature fluctuations cause wooden trim and many other surfaces to dramatically expand and contract. If you use low quality exterior paint that is on the surface that isn’t flexible enough, this expansion and movement can cause the paint to crack and flake off.
We have to admit the fact that we cannot change weather conditions. All we can do is to protect our home from these genuine stresses by applying a couple of coats of high quality exterior paint made with 100% acrylic binder.
