The exterior of your home is the first thing people will see and presenting a good first impression is important, especially if you are or planning to sell your home. The same logic applies for houses and buildings, so generally, the first thing people see when they look at your house or your building is the painting. A reflection of you including color paint you have chosen or the quality of your paint but overall is presented by the way your exterior painting. Further issues may arise when it has been there for a long time since there will be problems with it that if you do not fix in time as paint does not last forever. The tops issues that develop on exterior paint over time that indicate you need to give the exterior a fresh coat is what we at McKay’s Painting would like to share today.
Bubbling Paint Texture
As you see a bubble-like texture, this damage is called blistering which happens usually when there is too much sunlight directly hitting the paint. Before you repaint, you will need to remove the blisters and sand them down. If in the event you notice your paint blistering, allow the paint to dry before the sun directly gets into contact with it.
Should you notice that your paint is cracking, this might mean that your first coat of paint was not dried enough for you to apply the second coat. When the paint bubbles up, you will also need to remove the cracks and the paint and do it again. This is another reason why this might happen if you are using two different types of paints that don’t work well with each other. Before you buy the paints, make sure you talk to a professional about it to give you a green light.
Make sure that you are investing in it rather than buying the paint that is the cheapest if you are painting the exterior because low-quality paint can cause the paint to peel which is not what you want.
Dripping Patterns in Paint
Dripping paint is the likely result if you should have applied too many coats of paint on the wall. When you apply too many coats, the coat of paint is dripping and runny which takes even longer for it to dry as this makes the paint heavy, and rather than allowing the paint to absorb the wall.
If the paint is exposed to moisture or there is little to no sunlight hitting the paint, fungus growth the paint is exposed to moisture or there is little to no sunlight hitting the paint. With a fresh coat of paint to repair this, you will need to remove it using specific cleaning solutions then repaint it.
