ATLANTA, GA, January 17, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Atlanta painting company The Painting Penguin discusses the importance of addressing any trouble spots on your home's exterior before the winter season. Snow, ice and freezing temperatures put a lot of stress on house paint and can lead to increased wear and tear if not prepared for in advance.
Don't Let Cold Weather Ruin Your Home
Paint does much more than make your home look good; it also serves as a vital, protective layer for underlying wood surface. When exposed to the harsh elements, siding can prematurely deteriorate, which increases the chances of rotting and impaired structural integrity.
This is why it is important to repair any visible signs of cracking or chipping as soon as possible. If your home is in need of a fresh coat of paint, hiring an Atlanta painting contractor to apply an exterior alkyd or oil-based paint is a sound investment. These kinds are capable of withstanding sub-zero temperatures, as are latex-based paints that have been mixed with special additives.
The application of regular latex paints are not recommended in climates where it is common for the temperature to fall below the freezing point, as latex contains water. Regardless of what type of paint you use, making sure to apply the coat while the weather is still warm is a must.
According to Stephen Popov, Managing Partner of the Painting Penguin, "Poor color distribution, water spotting, difficulty with mixing and longer drying times are just a few of the problems associated with paint application, especially latex, when the temperature is less than fifty degrees. Painting now can save you a lot of trouble later."
