Why Keep Wood Painted in Your Home? (Home Painters Cos Cob)


September 25, 2013

Are you a Cos Cob resident who puts off doing work around your home until it piles up?

If so, it’s not just a bad habit; it can be detrimental to the welfare of your home, and very costly too.

We at Shoreline Painting, a home painters Cos Cob company, warn our clients against procrastinating on the painting work needed on your home for a variety of reasons.

If you’ve ever looked at wood inside or outside a home that has lost its paint, either from cracking or peeling, you will notice damage. Of course, outside wood will become damaged much more quickly.

However, wood in the home also becomes damaged. Inside the home, wood that loses its paint can easily warp. This is because the wood is exposed to more humidity, especially in humid climates. Paint is an excellent protector for wood. In arid climates, it helps the wood maintain its moisture. If wood is exposed to dry air, it will also warp, because it has lost its natural moisture.

Outside the home, it gets much worse. Mold, warping, dried out wood, damage from rusting nails in the wood―all sorts of things happen to wood that is outside. Paint preserves the wood, keeps its moisture within, and keeps extra moisture from invading and causing havoc.

Shoreline Painting, the top recommended home painters Cos Cob residents rely on, can surely help you get your home back to its original condition or better.

Give us a call and find out how we can save you time, effort, money and hassle.
