The most durable, toughest, most protective finish of exterior latex paint is achieved when the weather isn’t too hot or too cold.
Winter is tough on your home’s exterior as moisture wreaks havoc on exterior paint; snow, ice, frost, rain, and high humidity all negatively affect the paint by causing it to swell and soften. This will eventually lead to cracking, blistering, flaking, and peeling. Moisture conditions also support the growth of mildew.
A fresh coat of paint can boost your home’s curb appeal and help protect it from the elements. Even touching up the trim and shutters on your home can ultimately increase its value. One study revealed that the most popular colors for homes are neutrals and that bold shades are welcome, as long as they are used as accents.
