If you’ve ever looked at the face of a house that’s been exposed to the sun for years, you’ll know why it’s important to keep your home’s exterior looking fresh. That’s one reason you should consider hiring a professional painter to pre-treat your exterior before painting. This will not only keep the integrity of your home but also look more appealing, increasing its value while preventing damage in the future.
The key is to eliminate loose paint and seal any cracks or holes in order to protect your home from further damage. This will also allow your new paint job to last longer because it won’t be affected by sun exposure or humidity; plus, it can save you some money over time! Now let’s explore some ways of getting this important job done right.
Protecting the paint on your home’s exterior with a quality coat of paint makes practical and financial sense since it’s an important first line of defense against sun damage.
Due to its hot, sunny weather, Phoenix Arizona is known for its sun-drenched exteriors and all the potential problems that can arise from them. When you consider that most homes are exposed to all sorts of elements—including heat, moisture, dust, and pollution—it’s easy to see why so many homes struggle with faded paint over time. In addition to being unattractive (and therefore affecting property value), faded or chipping paint can also weaken a home’s structural integrity because some paints contain lead!
House painting services should be done with quality paint that’s intended specifically for outdoor use; otherwise it won’t last as long against mother nature as advertised by big box stores like Home Depot or Lowe’s!
Using professionals may cost more upfront but will save time and hassle in the long run:
- They Have the Right Tools: Many homeowners try to save money by using their own brushes and rollers, but they’re not always the best tools for the job. Professional painters use high-quality equipment that excels at applying paint evenly and quickly—two things that are often difficult for amateur painters!
- They Know How to Work With Your Existing Paint: Homeowners may not realize that some paints can’t be painted over easily and require special preparation, often including scraping off old layers of paint first! In addition, professional painters are trained in how to work with different types of surfaces (such as wood shingles or stucco) so they don’t damage them while painting.
Homes that aren’t properly painted and maintained are vulnerable to sun damage.
The exterior of your home is constantly exposed to the sun’s rays. As a result, it’s vulnerable to the damaging effects of these UV rays. When left untreated, this exposure can lead to damage like peeling paint and faded colors that can make your home less appealing—and even lower its value.
Sun damage will also affect the appearance of your interior walls and furniture by darkening them over time. With darker colors becoming more popular than lighter ones, there’s no better time than now to get started on an exterior painting project!
The sun is enemy #1 when it comes to damaging your home’s exterior, but there are some things you can do about it.
In Arizona, we have extreme heat, sun, and wind. All of these factors can cause your home’s exterior to deteriorate over time.
We have all seen how the sun can damage a building’s exterior by fading paint and causing peeling paint. The same thing happens when rainwater sits on the surface of the paint for an extended period of time because it washes away some of the protective coatings on the surface of your home’s exterior walls leaving them vulnerable to damage from moisture absorption into their surfaces. When moisture gets into cracks or voids between joints in siding or trim boards, it causes them to expand and contract as temperatures change throughout each day which ultimately leads to deterioration over time by loosening adhesion between pieces such as doors & windows or roofing materials like shingles or tiles.
Paints that contain UV-inhibiting pigments and binders protect color from fading, chalking, and cracking, so consider applying new coats every three to five years.
If you live in a humid climate or your home is under a lot of sun consider the following:
- Paints that contain UV-inhibiting pigments and binders protect color from fading, chalking, and cracking, so consider applying new coats every three to five years.
- Less expensive paints can last longer by applying several thin coats rather than one thick coat. A good rule of thumb is to wait at least 24 hours between each coat so the paint cures properly before adding another layer.

If your house has never been painted or it hasn’t been repainted in the last 10 years or more, it’s time to hire a professional painter.
A fresh coat of paint can re-vamp the look and value of your home. A professional painter is trained to do the job right and will use high-quality materials that will protect your home from sun damage. Professionals also tend to have access to better tools than most homeowners do, so you’ll get results that are smoother and with fewer brush strokes than those done by someone who doesn’t work with paint every day.
A good paint job improves the overall appearance of your home and enhances its curb appeal. The right color combinations are pleasing to the eye and can complement surrounding landscapes.

- A fresh coat of paint can make an old house look new again—or a new house looks as if it has been there for years.
- Sanding down and painting over previously peeling or chipped paint helps protect your home from further damage by preventing moisture from getting into cracked or damaged areas of the surface underneath. Water is one of the main ingredients in concrete, so when water gets behind painted surfaces that have deteriorated they become susceptible to damage due to expansion or contraction/shrinkage caused by temperature changes as well as freeze-thaw cycles.
By taking a proactive approach to maintaining your home’s exterior, you can prevent costly repairs and keep that fresh new look for years to come.
