Painting your home’s exterior is one of the best ways to increase your property value, keep your home’s structure healthy, and improve your home’s appearance. However, it’s very important that the paint job is performed by a qualified professional who can guarantee high quality work. A low quality exterior paint job can deteriorate very quickly, so if the job isn’t done right, you might need to have your home repainted in as few as one or two years.
When you hire the professional Boston painting contractors at Artisan Painting and Decorating, Inc., we’ll be able to guarantee that you get the highest quality painting services possible. In order to help ensure that your home’s exterior is ready to be painted, we also offer pressure washing services. Giving your home an exterior pressure wash before you have it painted will help guarantee that the new paint is as attractive and long-lasting as possible.
Here are a few of the reasons that our professional Boston painters recommend pressure washing your home’s exterior before having it painted:
Pressure Washing Will Make Your Paint Last Longer
Even if you can’t see it, your home’s exterior walls are likely lined with dirt and all sorts of particulate matter—mold and mildew grow are also very common. If you paint your Boston home without washing it first, you won’t be painting your walls at all, but instead, you’ll be painting this grime.
That might not sound like it’s a huge problem, but it actually is.
When you paint over this grime, fungus, or mold, the paint will start to chip and peel away much more quickly than usual. Your new paint will react very quickly to heat and rain, and it will be very noticeable. Pressure washing your home’s exterior ensure that your exterior paint job will be as long lasting and high quality as possible.
Your Garden Hose Won’t Do the Job
There’s unfortunately no great do-it-yourself version of the pressure washing services that our professionals can provide. You’ll need specialized equipment to achieve achieve anything close to the intended effects. And even if you can see a visual difference in the cleanliness of your Boston home’s exterior, it’s important to note that the things you can’t see are what do the most damage.
The mold and mildew that is so prevalent on the exterior of homes is very, very difficult to remove. Power washing is the only way you’ll be able to remove enough build-up to have a significant effect on the quality of your paint job.
Exterior Pressure Washing is Time- and Cost-Beneficial
You’ve already hired a professional for the exterior painting job, so why should hire another for pressure washing?
One answer is that it’s worth it. A professional pressure washing job will provide your Boston home with great benefits that you won’t be able to achieve on your own, and they’ll save you money in the long-run.
Also, our Boston Painting professionals can provide both of these services to you and guarantee the best results possible.
