Spring is in the air, flowers are blooming, and the birds are singing. As the days are lengthening, you might be spending more time outdoors on your patio, soaking up the stronger rays of sun.

SIGNS IT’S TIME TO PAINT YOUR HOME
- Flaking, peeling, or missing paint. This is a surefire sign it’s time to call a house painting company such as Alliance Painting in Dallas-Fort Worth to repaint your house. Weather is the biggest culprit when it comes to destroying your exterior paint. The sun’s strong UV rays can fade the paint. Harsh winters with freezing rain and ice can chip away at your home’s exterior paint. Humidity in the summers can cause your paint to peel and even cause rot if the wood underneath has been exposed for a good length of time. Blowing sand and salt from the ocean eats away at your home’s exterior paint as well, causing missing chunks and holes.
- Damaged caulking. Caulking is used as a sealant to keep the weather out of the seams and cracks. However, when it’s damaged, there is an opportunity for bugs, water, and other weather to burrow into your home’s wood or even your home itself and cause damage. Small cracks can probably be fixed. However, if you find a big chunk missing, check for other areas of missing caulking as well as other signs of damage, and then call in a professional house painting company such as Alliance Painting in Dallas-Fort Worth for a new coat of paint to protect your home.
- Damaged wood or stucco and exposed surfaces. A lot of homeowners add a coat of paint to their home and then forget to check every year for anything awry. When you do notice damaged wood, stucco, or any exposed surfaces from missing paint, it’s imperative you invest in house painting services as soon as possible. Paint protects, which is the main reason we paint (besides the aesthetic value), and without it, your home is vulnerable to infection (from bugs, critters, mildew, rot, and interior damage from water).
- You’re tired of your home’s color. One day, you drive up to your home and now the beautiful yellow you had painted five years ago is now looking more like something your dog got into. This is a clear sign you need a new exterior paint. You want a fresh look.
