What You Can Do to Avoid Fading on Your Exterior Painting Project
Avoid Fading on Your Exterior Painting Project
Was the exterior of your home painted less than a few years ago, yet the color looks nothing like the one that you originally used due to fading? Exterior paint is constantly exposed to the elements which cause it to erode, fade, dry out, chip, etc. This makes keeping the outside of your house looking good feel like a never-ending process. The sun also is a huge culprit when it comes to aging exterior paint. Wouldn’t it be great to not have to worry about constantly having to repaint the color of your home to keep it looking vibrant? We have compiled.
While you cannot get rid of the sun and its UV radiation, you can lessen their impact on your exterior paint. How? Use high quality paints with UV inhibitors.
You can also choose colors that are more fade-resistant. Paints made with inorganic red oxides and brown earth tones have superior color retention. Organic colors such as bright reds, blues, and yellows fade a lot faster.
When selecting paint, add extra protection by choosing top quality 100 percent acrylic latex paint. These have very durable pigments that are more resistant to breaking down.
So although you cannot completely eliminate fading due to exterior elements, these few things will help slow it down and keep your home looking vibrant longer. For expert advice or for a Free Quote on residential painting in the Fort Myers area, contact the professionals from Noel Painting today!
