Is It Time To Paint You Exterior?

Painting your home is important for durability and performance of your siding. Most homes need to be painted every 6-8 years if you have Fiber Cement. If you have Cedar, LP, T1-11 you should paint every 4-6 years. Unlike James Hardie Fiber Cement which can’t rot, Wood siding will rot eventually. Painting wood siding helps protect areas where water intrudes. The smallest cracks and blisters will allow water to get behind the paint and soak into the siding. That’s why many homeowners are residing with James Hardie Plank Fiber Cement.

Signs you need to repaint-

  • Cracked Caulking
  • Hardened Caulking
  • Chipped Paint
  • Fading
  • Peeling
  • Cracking
  • Bubbling
  • Siding is shrinking or showing gaps on the joints

Homeowners often paint right before the put their house on the market. A fresh paint job will make any home look amazing!
