As we begin to enter Summer each year the thoughts
The varied climate we have ensures that any exterior house paint undergoes severe stress from the hot baking summer temperatures to the frosts and biting wind or rain of the long winter months. Unlike ourselves who add a protective layer of clothing in winter or who can shelter from the effects of extreme weather, the outside of our homes are left unprotected apart from a thin layer of house paint. It is hardly surprising then that often the exterior paint finish will peel, flake or blister and that this then results in a faster deterioration of the external coating as water is now able to get behind the paint and weaken it further. In extreme cases this can also lead to damp penetration through the wall and into the interior of the home.
The good news for home-owners who need their house painting is that the latest scientific breakthroughs in exterior coating technology has led to a new generation of ultra durable and weather resistant exterior paints which will mean an end to annual house painting regardless of the weather throughout the year . These latest paint coatings are microporous which basically means they stop any water from being absorbed whilst still allowing the walls to breathe. They are also UV resistant and maintenance free for at least 20 years !
So, invest in a new high tech house painting service using these amazing self cleaning exterior paints and throw away the brushes and pots of paint for good. Make this Summer one where you put your feet up in the garden rather than on a ladder!
