You may be stuck with siding, fascia, soffits, and gutters that look a bit weathered and worn. Instead of replacing all of it, which can be very expensive, you should hire an exterior painting company to repaint them instead. Some people don’t realize that siding, fascia, soffits, and gutters can be painted. But not only can they absolutely be painted regardless of the material they are made of, they will greatly benefit from a fresh exterior paint job. And your home’s value and curb appeal will too!
Like all other areas in your house, siding, fascia, soffits, and gutters have their own deterioration rate which determines how often they need to be painted. Their material plays a focal role in determining the kind of treatment that should be done prior to painting. Aluminum, wood, vinyl, stucco, etc all require different treatment.
Add value to your home by painting old and uninteresting siding that has started to peel and fade. Make sure to prepare the surface for painting by making it dry, clean and free from dust. Once the paint has been applied, let it dry completely in warm temperature and avoid touching it.
To enhance the look of your fascia, paint it with a color that best suits its original look and base material. Begin by scraping and sanding the old fascia. Close all holes and joints that appear upfront with a paintable material. Then apply a primer. Once the primer dries, paint with your desired paint. You will need to repaint the fascia every 5 to 10 years.
Before painting your soffits, make sure to prepare the exteriors for painting. This includes scraping, filling gaps, sanding, priming, and cleaning. Then apply coats of your desired paint and gloss for a beautiful roofline.
Before painting your rain gutters make sure to protect areas that you don’t want to paint, especially if you are going to use a spray. Painting vinyl gutters is relatively easier than painting aluminum gutters, but it’s always best to hire a professional painting company to do it.
