With the temperatures rising, more outdoor projects and activities are sure to be filling up to-do lists. One project, however, should be at the top of your spring maintenance priorities — painting.

The company’s talented crew fully understands the advantages to painting in the spring and has experience with a wide range of commercial and residential painting projects.
Putting painting projects at the top of your to-do list has a number of benefits. First, completing residential painting before moving on to other outdoor projects such as gardening preserves the hard work your green thumb will do. Laying mulch and planting before painting means you’ll just end up trampling a lot of the plants later on. The temperatures of spring are much more comfortable than the blazing heat of summer, making painting a more enjoyable task. Lastly, taking care of painting projects early means you’ll have more time to devote to other summer activities.
But knowing why to paint isn’t the same as knowing what to paint. For residential painting projects, here are three common areas of your home to check up on:
- Decks: Before breaking out the BBQ gear on your deck, you’ll want to make sure it’s in good shape. Repainting and staining a deck every two or three years is a good idea to maintain its aesthetic integrity.
- Trellises & Pergolas: If you have a thick bunch of vines or plants covering your garden trellises, it can be easy to ignore any fading or chipping paint. Eventually, though, those imperfections will show through.
- Fences: In addition to making a fence look shabby, peeling and chipping paint also can have disastrous effects on its structural integrity. When the wood underneath the paint is exposed, ti can deteriorate and rot. Applying a beautiful new coat of paint will help keep your fence in good shape and keep your home’s curb appeal strong.
Getting outside and painting before the summer will keep your home prepared for the rising heat, but you might need a bit of help to get everything looking just right.
