What is exterior painting?

Exterior painting is the process of applying paint to the your homes exterior walls and surfaces such as window ledges, lintels, sills and surrounding garden walls. There are many different types of masonry paint and techniques for application, it is crucial to make sure you get the right type of paint for your property. For example, brick homes require a different type of paint than houses with wooden cladding or roof shingles.

If people attempt a DIY project or handymen and the like who don’t have a great deal of experience painting the exterior of houses, they often don’t know many litres of paint are required to cover all the walls and other surfaces. This means more often than not they do not apply enough paint and it is not applied evenly causing issues with cracking and flaking down the line.

Homeowners often do not have a clear idea of what is required for exterior house painting, our team have years of experience and are constantly painting houses, roofs and large commercial properties.

Signs your homes exterior needs painted

There are always plenty of signs your homes exterior needs to be painted. Within as little as five years, paint on houses can peel, shrink, and change colour due to environmental damage. During the winter months, towns and cities in Edinburgh get snow, ice , heavy rain and cold harsh winds which gradually wear away your homes outer layers. In the summer, uv light from the sun can also cause aesthetic damage such as discolouration. 

Many other causes exist for old tired looking houses and damaged paint jobs. The most common signs that your homes exterior needs help from professional exterior painters in Edinburgh include worn or faded colour, paint chips or cracks, missing paint, bubbling paint, and damaged siding. You also may want to repaint your house if you simply do not like the colour anymore. Trends and tastes change and it feels good to update your home so it always fresh and makes a good first impression.

Hire professional exterior painters

Exterior house painting is a necessary and unavoidable expense that every homeowner has to deal with at some point in their lifetime, often more than once. Unfortunately, many people attempt to paint their house themselves and end up running into huge problems. Negative outcomes include ruined and wasted materials, poor colour coordination, poor coverage, and unsightly streaks. Our expert exterior painting contractors will provide you with a flawless finish every time with your satisfaction guaranteed!

Another surprising reason to hire an exterior painting contractor is for your own safety. Lot’s of people get injured around the house when climbing up on ladders than you might think. Painting exterior walls requires skill that the average person does not have, hiring professional exterior painters gives you peace of mind that the job will be done right and with no injuries or damage to your property. All these things considered, it is definitely worth the added expense to get the job done right and have your home looking it’s best.

Difference between exterior paint and wall coating

The difference between exterior painting and wall coating may not seem obvious in a picture, however, one look in person and it’s perfectly clear. They both provide surface coverage and can change the colour of your walls and exterior. Wall coating, however, offers a greater level of protection against water damage, fungus growth, and other issues. These products have a higher degree of durability due to their combination of paint, minerals, resins, and other ingredients. Exterior wall coating is up to 20 times thicker than standard masonry paint!

Also, all coatings will last longer than exterior paint. Ultimately the choice about which to use depends on the your budget, how long you plan to live in your home and other long term factors.

Benefits of exterior painting

The benefits of exterior painting are pretty obvious, your house looks nice and fresh and is somewhat protected from the elements. A freshly painted home makes a great first impression and will compliment and other home improvement works. The list of advantages are both aesthetic and practical. When you choose a high-quality exterior paint, you can enjoy a better looking home for many years. You can also get a better price for your home when it comes time to sell it.

Benefits of exterior wall coating

Wall coatings provide a variety of benefits above and beyond basic exterior paint. These are primarily related to durability and protection against things that could damage your property. Exterior coatings hold their colour instead of fading due to environmental factors. They have additives that prevent algae and fungus from growth on the surface. They are also more flexible and stronger, resisting pounding rain, fierce winds, and even scrapes and damage that can occur accidentally.
