New paint on the exterior of your home is one of the most basic yet most overlooked home improvement of all. It is amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do to enhance a home's value as well as curb appeal.
It is amazing that a thin film of primer and paint lasts as long as it does. Exterior house paint has to stand up to the most extreme conditions that nature and man can dish out. Your home moves and breathes as the temperature rises (expansion) and falls (contraction). In addition, wood is continuously moving, splitting and warping. When you add the weather with wind, dust, rain, hail and snow, it makes it even harder on your exterior coating.
It is our belief that exterior painting is the most important maintenance project you can do to preserve your home from the elements. Properly done you can expect 5-7 years on a stain and 8-10 years on a paint job. Obviously, there are variables, but a bad paint job can be costly in the long run. Since 1986, we have been painting exteriors of homes in the unforgiving Northwest Environment. In these years, we have learned what works and what doesn't.
On many homes, the wood deck is a focal point.
It looked great when it was built 7 years ago, but now it looks tired and uninviting. All decks benefit from regular refinishing. Our cleaning, stripping, brightening and staining process can make most decks return to near original appearance. We can also repair dry rot and badly decaying boards to extend the life of your deck. Decks and railings are one of our specialties.
Our recommendation is that you refinish your deck every 2-4 years to keep it preserved and attractive in appearance.
While anybody can slap paint onto your walls or stain on your deck, here at Action Maintenance & Painting, our trained professionals will give you experience and expertise only a true journeyman can provide. When it comes to maintaining the exterior of your home, nobody provides the quality and longevity quite like us.
