Summer is coming to an end, which means that Cleveland and the surrounding areas will be getting cold soon! Since Curb Appeal Painting is dedicated to both your home's appearance and protection, we thought we'd share some advice on exterior painting services you might need before fall and winter. Not only will these services protect your home from threats that colder weather brings, but they'll also give the exterior of your home a facelift!
Exterior Wall Painting
No one likes cold, dreary rain storms...especially when temperatures go below freezing right after. Your home's paint job doesn't like this either! Constant freezing and thawing is hard on your home's exterior paint. Without the proper protection, this freezing and thawing process can cause ugly chipping and cracking. Perhaps your paint job is already chipped or cracked. In this case, freezing moisture this coming winter is bound to make this damage worse. Curb Appeal Painting's professional painting contractors know which exterior paints offer the best protection for different surfaces, including vinyl and aluminum.
Wood Rot Repair
Mold and mildew caused by humid summer temperatures are agents of wood rot that could potentially be affecting your home. Common areas of wood rot around the home include decks, roofs, window frames, and exterior doors. Curb Appeal's contractors are experts at identifying and repairing wood rot inside and outside of your home, and now is the perfect time to make these repairs before the cold temperatures come. Like exterior painting, the freezing and thawing of moisture in your home's wooden surfaces will significantly increase the damage that the wood rot has caused. If left unattended, this could lead to dangerous structural liabilities.
Wood Trim and Window Glazing
Maybe the most important services you need before the cold are trim repair and window glazing—for so many reasons! Exterior trim may look purely aesthetic, but it actually serves as an important barrier against the elements, especially on windows, exterior doors, and around the roof.
People aren't the only ones who don't like the cold. Bugs and other pests don't either, and they'll gladly invade your home to be in a warmer environment. The easiest way for insects to enter your house is through cracks and openings in exterior trim due to damage or rot. Protect your home from these unwanted visitors with Curb Appeal's trim repair service. Additionally, insulating your home from the cold will save you money on your energy bill. Window glazing from Curb Appeal forms a weather-tight seam that does wonders to protect and insulate your home.
