Painting in rough weather? Leave it to the house painting professionals

A lick of paint can transform a house and make it looks as good as new. While some people tackle the job themselves, most put their homes into the hands of a professional house painting contractor.

But is painting a house really so difficult? Why spend money getting the job done professionally when you could just as easily pick up a brush yourself?

Well, for a start, painting a house is a big job. If the paint is to last a long time the house walls need to be prepared – which means thorough cleaning and repairing cracks and grooves before you even think about applying primer, let along paint.

Professional house painting services have the tools to tackle these tricky jobs efficiently and quickly. This takes the hassle out of the job, but also means that the paint will last because it has been applied to a stable, clean surface.

Depending on where you are, climate can have a big impact on how you go about a paint job too. You need to know how to paint around the weather, and have the patience to wait for the right conditions.

In Florida, for example, the climate is pretty volatile. Humid and subtropical, intense sunlight and moisture in the air make for difficult conditions to get paint to dry without peeling or blistering.

Paint peels when the surface gets wet and oil-based paints will start to peel immediately in the damp. Surfaces must be totally dry before they can be painted. Blistering is the opposite problem and occurs when surfaces are too hot from the sun. Heat can cause a skin to form on the paint surface, which blisters and peels off.

Other weather-related pitfalls include alligatoring (which happens when a second coat is applied before the first has dried), mildew (which occurs when the surface was not properly prepared) and stickiness (when the paint won’t dry). Stickiness is a common problem in humid weather – too heavy a coat won’t dry, and cheap, low quality paints stay sticky for longer.

When these problems occur, the only solution is to sand the surface down and go back to square one, which means preparing the surface and repainting layer by layer. Professional house painting services in Florida know how to negotiate these difficulties to ensure your paint job is finished to a high standard and lasts. So, is it worth doing it yourself? That depends on how much patience you have.
