Like most people, your home is the single biggest investment that you have. Therefore, it makes good sense to do everything that you can to take good care of it.
Regular maintenance will also keep your home looking attractive, which also adds to the value of the property.
“Think of paint as an investment and not a cost.”
Painting is a maintenance task that offers one of the best returns for the dollar…inside or out. Also, a fresh coat of paint can transform a plain home into an eye-catcher.
“Besides enhancing appearance and mood inside your home, a fresh coat of paint outside can help protect the home from the elements (sun, rain, and snow).”
“It doesn’t make any difference how good the paint is; it simply won’t stick unless the surface is clean.”
The most important step is preparation, so SOUZA prepares! Even though we buy the best quality paints, and use the highest quality applicators, if we do not prepare your surface properly, the paint will fail to stick.
We remove all loose paint, rust, and other debris. We clean the work area thoroughly, removing dirt and mildew that will interfere with the paint’s ability to do its job.
SOUZA uses interior and exterior oil-based primers because of their durability and washability in all sorts of conditions and climates.
How often should you paint the exterior of your home?
It depends on several factors: exterior siding material, climate, sun exposure and the quality and type of paint used. With proper preparation and top-quality paint, a home typically will require painting every 5 to 7 years. Darker shades…as with trim colors…might need repainting every couple of years to retain their original brilliance.
