Exterior House Painting: Signs It’s Time to Repaint Your Home

Many homeowners only think to repaint their home’s exterior when they are ready for an aesthetic change. However, your home’s paint is its first line of defense against the elements and it helps to protect your home’s siding from water and sun damage. This makes it important that you have your home’s exterior periodically repainted. Yet, how will you know when your home needs painting? Here are a few of the signs you can look out for indicating that your home’s exterior is in need of repainting.

Exterior House Painting: Signs It's Time to Repaint Your Home

Fading Color

Over time, the sun’s UV rays can cause your home’s paint to fade. This is not only an aesthetic problem, but it also is likely an indicator that your home’s paint is deteriorating and is no longer protecting your home from the elements as well as it used to. Once your home’s exterior painting begins to look faded and washed out, you should consider being proactive and having your house repainted.

Cracking or Peeling Paint

A clear sign that your home is in dire need of being painted is if there are sections of your home’s exterior where the paint is chipping, peeling, or cracking. This is most likely to occur in areas of your house that are exposed to the most moisture such as window sills. Once your home’s paint has begun to crack and peel, it can no longer protect the wood underneath it from rotting, and your home will need repainting immediately.

It Has Been a While Since Your Home Was Painted

Generally, a good exterior paint job will last 10-15 years. If it has been this long since your home was last painted, or you cannot remember when your home’s last paint job was, then you should consider repainting your home.

Five Trends in Kitchen Remodeling for 2018

When it’s time to remodel your kitchen, you want the best for bang for your buck, and that means keeping up with what’s new. According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, here are some hot new trends for 2018.

Five Trends in Kitchen Remodeling for 2018

Technology

There are more and more new technology devices coming out every day. In order to take advantage of everything new, planning must take place ahead of time. Extra outlets, wiring and room for devices need to be in place. Even if you don’t have this tech in your life now, planning ahead can save you money in the future. Take the time to consult with your contractor now, and you will be ready when you make the leap.

Lighting

Lighting is more sophisticated and being controlled by smart devices now. One light in the center of the room won’t cut it anymore. Look for path lighting, under cabinet lighting and options for mood, or specific task lighting.

Sustainable materials: There is a much greater concern for the environment and a continuing move to more sustainable products. Bamboo floors are a great example. People are also opting for more indoor environmentally friendly products like low VOC paints and carpets. Natural stone products, quartz or cement countertops are also leading the markets.

Customized Storage

We are seeing great strides in super customized storage solutions. Many cabinet designers are adding this into their lines. Europe has led the way to this in recent years, but it is coming to the US now. Look for specific cabinets to store spices, pots and pans, and lightly used appliances among other things.

Color

while white and gray cabinets are still top sellers, designers are adding more color this year. Paint will always be an easy way to add a pop of color while still keeping the basics neutral and saving money, when the next big thing comes along.

When you want to give yourself and your home a lift, remodeling your kitchen is a great place to start, and if you want it done right, give RDS Construction a call. We can help you from start to finish. You will be pleased with what you see. Contact us  today to learn more!
