Beautiful on the Outside: Caring for your Home’s Exterior

You put a lot work into caring for the inside of your home. But how about the outside? Your home’s exterior does more than just look beautiful. It protects from sun, storms and extreme temperatures. No matter what material your siding is made of be sure to give it the proper attention.

Wood Siding

Wood siding is beautiful and if properly maintained can last generations. But natural materials quickly deteriorate if neglected. If you have wood siding on your home repaint every three to five years to prevent weather damage. If climbing that ladder isn’t your forte, let our painters take care of it with the right products expertly applied.

Vinyl Siding

If your home’s siding is in disrepair and its time to do an exterior makeover a second option is vinyl siding. The advantages of vinyl over wood are that it is less work to maintain. Most appealingly it is more affordable than wood. If you have some preconceptions about vinyl siding maybe it’s time to reconsider. The appearance and functionality of vinyl have come a long way since it was introduced back in the fifties. Just remember siding is only as good as its installation so make sure you call us so we can help choose the right brand and install it properly.
