All About Exterior Wall Painting

You must have heard of the saying, “First impression is the last impression.” Well, it holds true in the case of our living spaces as well. The idea is to make sure that the first glimpse of your home brings joy, not disappointment. You can achieve this by knowing when to paint the walls, which colours to use and which painting service to go with.

Best Time To Paint Exterior Walls

It is a wise idea to avoid rainy days and make sure all surfaces are dry before starting an exterior paint job. Check the weather forecast around the day you decide to paint your exteriors. If it rains right after the application, it might be disastrous, causing fading and discolouration. Therefore, look for months that give you dry days.

Benefits That You May Not Know About  Exterior Wall Painting

Protects the structural integrity

Applying high-quality exterior wall paint to the house seals moisture, which reduces the stress on your home’s structural integrity. Consequently, the structure’s lifespan is prolonged and the walls are well-protected.

Shields from extreme weather

India is a country with several different seasons. It experiences summers, monsoons and winters for a brief period. However, one thing that is common between all the diverse places in the country is that homes in all these regions are largely affected by the changing weather. Exterior paints on walls protect the surface by giving it an extra layer against harsh weather.

Enhances the visual appeal

Giving the exterior walls of your home a fresh coat of paint makes it more appealing and welcoming. It also covers up any blemishes or stains that accumulate on your walls with the passage of time.

In addition, having dust on your exterior walls is frequent in cities and locations that see a lot of construction activity. This may be prevented by using anti-dust exterior paints, which have Dust Guard Technology that prevents dust from sticking to the home’s exterior walls.

Prevents damage by insects

Putting a new coat of paint on the house closes off any potential entry points for bugs, potentially eliminating an infestation in its tracks. This helps keep all those pesky pests outside where they belong.

Improves the value of the property

When the exterior walls of your home are well-maintained, it can dramatically impact the value of your home.
