Exploring Deck and Patio Builds

Hi, I'm Ozzie Reida. Welcome to my site about residential patios, deck builds, and construction techniques. The deck is my favorite place to read a book or watch the birds hop around the yard. With the right deck, your yard can feel like an extension of your home. You can quietly relax, visit with friends or even cook on your patio or deck space. I would like to explore outdoor structure designs, materials, finishes and accents on my website. I would also like to talk about deck and patio trends embraced all around the world. I hope you will visit often to learn all you can about these amazing outdoor structures. Thank you for coming by my website. Please visit often.

Three Benefits Of Painting Your Home's Siding

Construction & Contractors Blog

The paint on your home's siding —- or stain, if your siding is made of wood — performs a role in both the appearance of your siding itself and as a protective layer against the elements. However, just like all other materials that are exposed to the weather throughout the year, your siding's paint or stain will begin to wear away over time, which will require you to have a brand-new coat applied. Understanding three of the most significant benefits of having your siding painted can help you figure out why you should make exterior painting a regular part of your home's maintenance schedule.

Curb Appeal and Home Value

The most obvious reason why you should consider painting your home's siding is to boost the overall curb appeal of your property. A fresh coat of paint can hide minor dings and scratches and can make your home much more eye-catching from the street. This is especially important if you are listing your home on the market at any point in the foreseeable future, as a better-looking exterior is likely to boost your home's value and make potential buyers more interested in coming inside for a tour.

Identify Repairs

An often overlooked benefit of having your siding painted is the fact that doing so gives you, or the people that you hire to do it, the opportunity to inspect the state of your siding up close. This means that you can identify any potential problem areas where structural damage has occurred, allowing you to repair them before they can cause any sort of interior water damage. This also allows you to see if your wooden siding has been affected by pest damage, which can indicate that your home is suffering from an infestation and will likely need a pest control specialist to treat it (not to mention the fact that you'll have to replace the affected siding as well). 

Siding Protection

Applying a fresh coat of paint or stain is also extremely beneficial to the structural integrity of your siding. The stain or paint acts as a protective barrier against the elements, preventing your siding from being dried out from UV radiation or damaged by constant moisture exposure. Regular painting every few years, depending on the amount of inclement weather exposure your home is exposed to, can greatly extend the overall lifespan of your siding and save you money on replacement installations in the long run.
