Commercial painting services are a great resource for business owners. When done right, exterior painting brings a great new look wherever applied.

But, if they do, Van Tuinen Painting’s team ensures our customers that we will help to fix the problem.
Common painting problems
Exterior paint, because it deals with the environment full time, needs the right times and the right conditions for proper application. If not, some common painting problems that cause future issues include:
- Water and/or Humidity: When painting happens on a damp or even wet surface, it may peel, crack, and blister. Moisture comes from a variety of sources, so your painting team needs to find all potential moisture problems before painting.
- Cheaper Painting Products: Painting products that are not professional grade are often less likely to stand up to the elements as much as they should. With lower overall durability, cheap paint fades, cracks, and loses curb appeal more quickly.
- Incorrect Surface Preparation: As eager as some are to paint, surface preparation allows for better application. Dirty surfaces or a surface that has not been primed are more prone to cracking or peeling. From dirt to mildew, surfaces have a variety of contaminants that need attention before painting.
- Poor Application Techniques: Paint applied to thinly or too thick creates issues on the surface. Paint applied too thin will not provide the protection it should. Paint applied too thick makes it more difficult for the paint to dry properly, leading to uneven surfaces.
