Vancouver House Painter Tips – Exterior House Painting

about_main_img

Exterior house painting in Vancouver is arguably the most important home renovation project and home maintenance you can do. Not only does it boost curb appeal, it increases the value of your home and offers defense against harsh weather condition such as rain (especially in vancouver!), snow and ice. It is highly advisable that you repaint immediately once you notice paint cracking, peeling and blistering, for this can escalate into an even bigger problem, thus costing you more money.


Weather Tips:

Refrain from painting when the temperature drops below 10°. Rain can ruin a fresh coat of point so avoid painting in harsh conditions. Direct sunlight can also cause paint to dry too fast and can cause lap marks and blistering so start your house painting on the side of the house that is under the shade.


Choosing an Exterior Color:

When choosing an exterior color, another house painting tip you would need to consider is choosing colors that will highlight your homes most attractive features and choose colors that will downplay their “flaws”. Also consider the colors schemes of your neighbor’s homes. You need to make a statement with your exterior colors so make sure the colors you chose are unique from your neighbors but the same time should complement the rest of the homes nearby. Do not totally deviate from the theme of the neighborhood or your home will end up looking like an eyesore.
