Exterior Painting and Maintenance Checklist for Your Coastal New Jersey Home

Exterior Painting and Maintenance Checklist for Your Coastal New Jersey Home

During our years as a professional painting company here in New Jersey, we have witnessed again and again what can happen when exterior maintenance is ignored. It may not seem like a big deal at first (there’s always next year to paint and make those repairs, right?), but before you know it a large-scale project is unavoidable.

The best, most cost-effective approach you can take is to invest in ongoing care and maintenance. Big problems are avoided by catching issues early on.

This is especially true for coastal homes, as weather fluctuations and environmental conditions are particularly strong. The key to protecting your property and maintenance budget is to know what to look for, and partner with a painting and maintenance company who can reliably meet your needs.

How Can You Protect and Preserve Your Coastal NJ Home?

  • Keep a Close Eye On Your Exterior Paint - As we mentioned above, the best way to protect your home is to proactively maintain your exterior paint. Waiting until a total paint failure opens your surfaces to unnecessary risk, and also drastically increases the level of work necessary for restoration to be possible.
  • Routine Pressure Washing - Consistent washing removes harmful contaminants that will shorten the lifespan of your paint and stain. On the coast, this includes corrosive salt residue. Set up a plan for regular pressure washing with a local professional!
  • Proactively Refinish Exterior Surfaces - Paint is important, but so is stain. For a real-life example (including dramatic transformation photos), be sure to look at this overview of what our deck refinishing services did for a local New Jersey home.
  • Watch for Brittle Caulk - This important sealant is easy to overlook, but it provides invaluable services. From preventing moisture and pest intrusion to enhancing the efficiency of your home, its job description is impressive. You’ll never regret making sure it’s in good repair, and not brittle and decayed.
  • Repairing Wood Rot - When rot sets in, immediate repair and/or replacement is necessary. Your painter can help you identify these weak spots and determine the best plan to protect your property from spreading decay.
  • Partner with a Local Painting Company - Especially if your coastal home is a vacation oasis, placing your painting and maintenance in the hands of a qualified professional creates endless peace of mind. And, as an extra benefit, it can be bright, fresh, and waiting for you as the vacation season comes around again!
