Painting your home’s exterior is a great way to improve its appearance and increase its resale value. When you’re having your home painted, you need make sure the work is as high quality as possible, or the appearance of it may quickly deteriorate, which means you’ll have to repaint your South home much sooner than you should need to.
One way to guarantee the best possible home painting job to hire the experts at Professional Home Painting, Inc., who can provide you with excellent service that you’ll be totally satisfied with. We’ll also be able to power wash your home before we begin the job, which is another great way to guarantee a high quality job is done.
Here are the top three reasons you should have your home pressure washed before you have it painted:
1. Pressure Washing Will Help your Paint Last Longer
pressure washing your home’s exterior will get rid of a lot of build-up that you may not even be aware of. Dirt and particulate matter are all over the exterior of your South Shore home, and it’s very likely that there’s a great deal of mold and mildew. Even if you’re unable to see these things, it’s very likely that they’re lining a large portion of your walls. If you paint over them, you won’t be painting over your walls at all, but you’ll painting this grime instead.
Is that really a huge problem? Actually, it is.
When you paint over this grime, fungus, or mold, the paint will start to chip and peel away much more quickly than usual. The paint will react to heat and rain much more quickly, and it will be very noticeable. Pressure washing is a great to ensure that your exterior paint job will be as long-lasting and high quality as possible.
2. Your Garden Hose Won’t Do the Job
There really is no DIY version of the South Shore pressure washing job that a professional will be able to offer your South Shore home prior to an exterior painting job. Using an ordinary hose for the job won’t give you the intended effect, as you’ll never be able to achieve the high amounts of pressure you need to remove much of the grime, even if you’re able to notice a significant visible difference. And it’s important to note that what you can’t see if often what causes the most problems down the line.
The mold and mildew that is so prevalent on the exterior of homes is very, very difficult to remove. Power washing is the only way you’ll be able to remove enough build-up to have a significant effect on the quality of your paint job.
3. Professionals Know Exactly What to Do—And What Not To Do
You’ve already hired a professional for the painting of your South Shore home, so why someone to power wash your home as well?
The first part of the answer is that it’s worth it. No one likes spending more money than they need to, but these services are a worthwhile investment that will save you money in the long-run.
Secondly, our painting contractors can take care of your exterior paint job as well as the preliminary South Shore power washing.
