Painting your Southwest Florida Home with Expertise
When painting your Southwest Florida home or office, you will either do it yourself or hire a contractor. However, what happens when you paint windows and doors on the exterior of your home—or hire someone to paint them for you—and soon the paint is peeling? This situation can be frustrating, especially if you've hired someone to paint the exterior of your Southwest Florida home for you.
What exactly happened and how can you prevent a similar situation from occurring in the future?
First and foremost, if you hired a contractor to paint the doors and windows of your home, make sure you never hire that contractor again. When the paint starts peeling from your doors and windows, it can be due to poor preparation of the surface before applying the paint or simply using the wrong paint for the weather conditions.
For example, if the paint on your windows and doors are peeling off, it could be because oil-based paint was used. This type of paint does not expand, which is essential for exterior paint jobs that are designed to weather the extreme heat in Southwest Florida.
When painting a home’s exterior (or interior), it is essential that you obtain expert advice and hire a contractor with the expertise to ensure the paint job is done right the first time. The last thing you want is for paint to start peeling off your walls, windows, and doors due to not properly prepping the surface or as a result of using the wrong type of paint.
If you have experienced a similar situation, learn more about painting windows and doors from the Ask the Experts: Windows and Doors page. Here some of these similar issues are addressed as well as detailed explanations.
At the end of the day, if you are painting your Southwest Florida home, make sure you rely upon expert painters with a solid reputation to get the paint job that you deserve.
