Having to maintain the exterior beauty of a home in Coral Springs, or anywhere in South Florida isn’t easy. Between the constant beating down from the Sun, in addition to the humidity and salt air… the only way you can paint the exterior of your home and have it last for 8 to 10 years is simply a matter of following certain steps, and if you skip a step, you could be painting your home every 3 to 5 years instead.
The first rule of exterior house painting in Coral Springs (if you want it to last) is to power wash all the old paint off the exterior walls of your home. The reason for that, and why it’s so important is this; When you apply new paint over old paint, and that old paint is probably peeling off… so, when that old paint peels, it take the newly applied paint with it. You may have perfectly good paint sticking to the old paint, but because the old paint is chipping and peeling, so does the new paint that’s stuck to it.
Once all the old exterior house paint has been power washed off, the next really important tip is to use a high quality, longer lasting paint. I don’t think you need a $200 per gallon quality paint, but Sherwin Williams makes a long lasting, quality paint that will stand up to Coral Springs harsh weather for at least 8 years, if not longer and tha’ll run you much less per gallon.
Our customers have told us that even though we quote your house painting with the higher quality, longer lasting paint, our house painting estimates still come in about 15% less than do our competitors, and our competitors typically put more of your money in their pockets by using lesser quality paint that may last only 3 to 5 years… couple that with a poor power washing job that does not remove all the old paint and you’re re-painting in 2 years.
