Seattle Exterior Painting: What’s Left On Your To-Do List?

We’re in no rush to see sum­mer go, but there’s just no deny­ing that fall is right around the cor­ner. As we gear up for the chang­ing sea­sons, the sum­mer­time win­dow for exte­ri­or house paint­ing in Seat­tle is start­ing to close!

Before our wet­ter weath­er hits, make sure your home is sound and protected.

Pro­tect Your Seat­tle Home This Fall!

Here are a few key tips and ideas to keep in mind.

#1: Exte­ri­or Painting

Sure, it’s attrac­tive, but your home’s paint is also a cru­cial line of defense against mois­ture intru­sion, pests, UV dam­age, and more. Mak­ing sure that this bar­ri­er is healthy and strong is invaluable.

Not real­ly time for a full repaint? We rec­om­mend rou­tine touch-ups too. Why wait until total paint fail­ure, right? As a wise man once said, an ounce of pre­ven­tion is worth a pound of cure… 

#2: Pow­er Washing

A deep, thor­ough clean­ing not only restores a fresh shine, but it also wash­es away con­t­a­m­i­nants that will actu­al­ly short­en the life of your paint and stain. Pro­fes­sion­al pow­er wash­ing between repaints and touch-ups is a smart move!

#3: Repair­ing Wood Rot

Eh, it can wait until next year…”

These are dan­ger­ous words when it comes to wood repair! Rot spreads quick­ly, and com­pro­mised sid­ing and trim can open the door to pests, mois­ture dam­age, and more exten­sive (expen­sive!) decay. Do your­self a favor and nip it in the bud. 

#4: Stain­ing Exte­ri­or Woodwork

Paint is impor­tant, but so is stain! A healthy fin­ish looks fan­tas­tic and offers price­less pro­tec­tion. We rec­om­mend inspect­ing and main­tain­ing your stained sur­faces every cou­ple of years.

Pro Tip:

If you’re won­der­ing if your deck needs to be refin­ished, try the water test! Sprin­kle water on top, and see if it beads or if it soaks in. If it beads and wicks off, then your stain and seal­er is still doing its job. If it pools and soaks in, that means that your wood is at risk and needs a fresh finish.

They just finished painting my house and I could not be more pleased. Rich has an eye for detail, and was very thorough with his estimate. Manny was the crew leader and he is pretty close to a perfectionist (without being over the top), and... view full review
