With winter here, we experience drastic weather conditions. From snowing, raining, to high winds, our paint job in our property’s exterior is obligated to face it all. So, this leads up to the question, “Is there any way to protect your paint job during winter?” The good news is that there is a way and how to protect your paint job, and we’ll be sharing it with you today.
To start off with, the paint products that you use to carry out a paint job should always be durable products. Typically speaking, oil or acrylic based paint are among the most durable paint products. Oil is wear resistant and acrylic is resistant to chemicals. These paint products have an estimate of about 15 to 18 years of life spans.
Furthermore, there are other measures you can take to protect your exterior paint job. As you can imagine, water, ice, and snow can take a toll on your paint, which is why it is crucial for you to protect your walls with a gutter. Your gutter should be clean at all times so water can flow freely and not clog up. If at any given moment it clogs up the water would begin to leak through the gutter, and fall onto your paint, causing fir stains and messes that nobody wants.
Another thing to look out for is plants and shrubs that grow near the property. We have heard of plenty of paint chipping and peeling because of branches scratching and scraping the side of the house. Who would have thought? So, if you have a landscape filled with beautiful trees, plants, and shrubs, get them trimmed.
You can also hire a professional painter to do a top coat of sealing products, to ensure your paint is protected.
Follow these simple but effective guidelines, and your paint will not be bothered whether it rain or shine.
