Residential Home Painting
Is it time to repaint your home?
Have you received a letter from your homeowner’s association (HOA) about the paint condition on your home’s exterior? Perhaps you have walked around your home and noticed cracks on the stucco or deteriorated caulking around windows and doors. You might want to refresh the look of your home with a new color. Protecting your home from the harsh Florida sun and weather is the first part of a good paint job.
What does new paint do for your home?
- Protect your home from the elements (sun and weather)
- Allows you to customize the look of your home
- Increases your home’s curb appeal
- Satisfies the HOA’s requirements for your home
The above reasons can motivate us to take the next step and have our home repainted. But understanding what paint does for our home is equally important. The priority is to protect your home from the weather. Water intrusion is a real problem for new and existing homes and can cost thousands of dollars to repair. You read that correctly, even new homes! Paint and caulking are your home’s first line of defense against the weather and are designed to be used in certain conditions. However, the preparation before you paint is 90% of the paint job’s ability to protect your home from the elements. In addition, your paint job can usually last many years with the proper maintenance.
- Cleaning the exterior of the home
- Fill all cracks and holes and address all exterior issues
- Covering all surfaces and removing items to prevent overspray
With the understanding that preparation and maintenance are critical to a long-lasting and beautiful paint job, what does a suitable contactor do to ensure this? Firstly, cleaning the exterior removes all the dirt and grime from the home and prepares it for new material. Next, filling all the cracks and holes and addressing all exterior issues ensures a uniform look and, more importantly, protects the home’s exterior. Finally, cover and protect all surfaces, including windows, furniture, plants, light fixtures, outdoor living equipment, pavers, etc., so they are protected from paint overspray.

When should you repaint your home?
While you may be stuck with an HOA telling you that you must repaint immediately, you may also have time, depending on your home’s condition. Early summer can be the best time to paint your home, but it comes down to your home’s condition. If you notice cracks in your stucco or exterior, you should have it checked out by our team to give you an accurate assessment of your timeline. Do you see cracks in stucco? If you observe the following it is a great idea to have it checked out immediately. You can read more about stucco cracks here.
- Cracks wider than 1/16″
- Cracks that look like spider webs
- Cracks that appear in a grid pattern
- At joints in your home.
