Why it is Important to Paint Your Exterior Home After the Winter Season

With the harsh winter months finally leaving us in the Chicagoland area, warmer temperatures are among us. With this in mind, we’ll start to see more people outside enjoying the weather as well as ensuring the exterior of their home is in order. What many homeowners do not realize is the importance of having a fresh coat of exterior paint on your home after the rigid winter we encountered. No matter how many flowers you add to your garden or how well-kept your lawn is, your home may be missing this crucial factor. Below are the many benefits of getting your exterior home checked and repainted after the winter season:


Rid of any rotting wood damage: This is especially important since winter brings more moisture to the exterior of the home, decreasing the lifespan of your siding, trim, and doors. Avoid this unnecessary damage by getting a fresh coat of paint.

Paint will dry quicker: With warmer temperatures mean the paint will dry quicker on the exterior of your house. This will allow for a smooth job done in a timely manner ready for your neighborhood to see your house revamped!

Keep pests away: With a fresh coat of paint, it makes it a lot more difficult for pests, such as termites, to chow down on the exterior of your home. This will keep your house free of unnecessary cracks and holes all season long.

Make sure to get your painting quotes before your painting professional books up for the season. The time to call is now to ensure you can get a spot on their schedule. This will also give you plenty of time to select and test your paint colors. To learn more or to get started on your exterior home, connect with us at Complete Painting & Restoration today.
