The majority of homes have exterior paint on their external materials to protect homes and help them look unique. Modern homes need paint to help protect them from weather, insects, and normal wear and tear. If you want to avoid the major risks of not painting your home, it is important to apply proper paint when your home is first constructed. Applying sturdy and weather-resistant paint will help make your home last longer and fit your personality. Rosewood Painting and Remodel can help improve your home with professional paint that is applied with efficiency and precision.
1- Your Home Is More Prone To Weather Damage
Because your home can not hide from the sun, the materials your home is built out of will be at risk for UV damage. This is one of the biggest risks of not painting because it can speed up the deterioration process which can lead to a dangerous home. Paints can help add an extra layer of protection to your home and slow down the deterioration of siding and doors.
Whether that has moisture can lead to mold or mildew growth. Rain, snow, or even wind storms can lead to mold and should be removed as soon as possible. Applying proper exterior paint will make your home more moisture-resistant and limit the amount of mold growth you will have to deal with.
Every home is susceptible to fire or natural disaster damage, but a properly applied coating and paint can help wood or other materials from splintering, slow down the burn process, and even limit dents or damage from hail or objects being thrown against the home.
2- Wood Rotting Is Escalated
Homes that are made of wood, have wooden decks, or have a wooden trim need to watch for rotting or insect infestations. Wood rotting can lead to compromised structural integrity and the look of your home. Both of these are risks of not painting that homeowners should be very concerned about. Wood is a popular material for homes, so applying a stain or paint can help keep bacteria, moisture, or wood-eating insects from invading.
When paint starts to wear away, the insects will be more attracted to the raw wood. When your paint starts to peel, make sure you repaint and touch it up at your earliest convenience. Risks of not painting your home build on each other and compound to limit the success of your living space.
3- The Structural Integrity Of Your Home Is Decreased
While painting can not fix structural or foundation problems on its own, having the home painted when it is built, will limit deterioration and slow the aging process of the home which can lead to structural problems (rotting, insect infestation, sun rot, weather damage, and more). If your home is already structurally unsound, applying paint will not make it safer, but improving the exterior with new materials that are protected by a coating or paint, will set you back on the right path and make your home much safer.
4- The Lack Of Paint Makes Your Home Look Older
Similar to your materials deteriorating faster, this process also makes your home look older. A coat of paint can help hide some of the natural wear and tear that occurs in your home. Exterior paint also helps your home look unique against nearby homes, helps it to look natural in the environment, and keeping up on the paint can help keep your home looking new. If you want the appearance of your home to stay pristine, touch up peeling paint, or repaint the entire home.
