Keep your home’s exterior looking fresh and functioning properly with spring maintenance

Spring has sprung! The warming coastal breeze here in the Panhandle has us all dreaming of the lazy beach days that will be here soon. But before let summer’s heat and humidity arrive in full force, you should take some time to check your home’s exterior for any needed maintenance and painting. Get it done now so you can kick back and relax when beach season is in full swing!

Peeling paint is a bad sign for your home's exterior.
Blistering and small cracks in your paint job can quickly lead to peeling.

Regular Maintenance is a Homeowner’s Best Friend!

Here on Florida’s coast, our homes take a beating. Salt, sun, sand, and moisture all take a serious toll on our siding and trim, and it’s important that we’re extra vigilant with maintenance. Now is a great time to inspect your exterior paint job. Are there any areas of fading or bubbling? Any places where sand and salt have worn away the paint and left exposed siding or trim work? You’ll want to take care of those spots right away to prevent long-term problems such as rotting wood and mold growth.

Mold and mildew grow quickly in Florida’s humid climate. Keep them at bay with regular maintenance and a fresh paint job.

A great painter can help you size up your home’s exterior and determine any necessary maintenance steps. You may only need minor repairs, such as caulking and paint touch-ups. But if a complete paint job is in order, we’re here for you with great inspiration boards on Pinterest. Check out our Coastal Exteriors board for beachy-chic ideas, or our Exterior Colors board for a wide variety of inspiring photos and links.
