Early summer — when the weather’s warming up and the rain clouds are few and far between — is the perfect time to spruce up your home. Flowers are blooming, grass is green, and the birds are chirping. Why not make your home as beautiful as its surroundings with an exterior paint project?
There are certain summer house painting projects that are best left to the pros. Not only will professional painters take the time to do it right, they’ll save you time so you can sit back and enjoy summer. It’s a win-win.
6 Summer House Painting Projects & Ideas
If you’re considering a paint project for your home this summer, here are a few ideas the pros can easily tackle:
Painting Stucco Stains
Our team has completed many full stucco house painting projects. This project in particular stands out, because the homeowners didn’t like the wet, saturated look on their stucco. The window frames color was so close to the stucco, they just blended in. And years of rain running down the windows and window frame trim cause this staining.
After a fresh paint job, the stucco looked lighter and cleaner while still keeping its unique masonry texture. Now, the trim on the home should last around 10 years and the stucco around 20 years.
It’s common for the color of shutters to gradually fade and weaken. For example, your once vibrant blue shutters might now be closer to a dull gray after a few years of exposure to the elements. Luckily, summer is the perfect time for professional painters to show your shutters some love with a powerwash and fresh coat of paint.
Front Door Painting
The front door is one of the first things that passersby and visitors to your home notice. It’s the focal point of your property’s facade and speaks volumes about how well you take care of your investment. By repainting your front and other entry doors you’ll be able to upgrade your home’s appearance quickly. This summer, go with a bold new color like green or blue.
Deck and Fence Painting and Staining
Is your deck looking drab after a long winter? Let’s get it ready for some outdoor entertaining this summer. When deck staining is done properly, a deck floor can last 1-3 years. Additional features like railings and other vertical surfaces may last anywhere from 1-8 years. A fence can last about 2-8 years, depending on the amount of exposure and type of stain used. Leave it to the pros to make sure it’s done right.
Trellis and Pergola Painting and Staining
Can you see exposed wood on your trellis or pergola? It’s time to protect it with quality painting and staining. Both painting and staining outdoor elements like trellises or pergolas can have a stunning effect and really update the space. And it’s always a smart idea to turn to the pros who have all of the equipment and know-how needed, and can complete the project in an efficient amount of time.
