Why Should I Consider Repainting My Home?

In favorable or difficult economic times, we still live in a tropical environment. Our homes are subjected to extremes in heat and moisture. Properly applied high quality paint and sealants can help protect your home and family from the ravages of these conditions.

What Kinds of Conditions Should I Be Aware Of?

Moisture in the form of vapor or water can enter the walls and interior of the home thru stressed, or improperly applied paint and sealants. Caulking and sealants around windows and doors, minor stucco cracks, small openings at siding, trim, stone or brick can let wind driven rain or excessive humidity enter the exterior walls. Paint and sealants can shrink, crack or separate due to age or normal structure movement. This will contribute to mold growth. Mold requires moisture to grow. It can even accumulate undetected over weeks, months and years.

We use all lessons learned from hurricanes, tropical storms and summer storms and along with two decades of experience, to help you protect your largest investment, and your precious family.

Can Repainting My Home Increase the Value?

Without doubt. It increases the life of structural and decorative components. It shows that you have invested time and resources to maintain the home inside and out. A properly maintained home is worth more to you as well. It helps to make a house a home, and gives your family a feeling of security.
