Exterior painting for homes is hard work. So, it’s important to know that when you get it done, how it stands up against the elements. And, one of the strongest forces that wears on paint over the years is sunlight. It might seem like a self-defeating job to paint when your home is exposed to the sun each day. But, that is why professional painters like Van Tuinen Painting are here to help. Our experienced painters provide a great painting experience for homeowners using paint that stands up for years against fading from the sun.
A fading/bleaching effect
You may have noticed on homes that are aging that their paint is faded or bleached in appearance. This is because of sunlight exposure over a long period of time. Darker colors tend to face more trouble with fading over time, but light colors will also fade eventually. Using the right kind of paint will help to fight this effect. Van Tuinen only uses some of the best paint in the industry to ensure a vibrant exterior for years to come.
A blistering/bubbling effect
Another way the sun affects paint is blistering or bubbling on the surface. When paint loses its adhesion to your home’s siding, portions of the surface may become raised. These raised portions appear like bubbles in the paint, which can cause an uneven surface. Typically, bubbling occurs when the hot sun dries paint out before it is fully adhered to the wall. The professional team at Van Tuinen ensures that painting your home only happens at the right time to avoid any blistering or bubbling.
