As the seasons go by year after year, the exterior surfaces of your home are exposed to its two worst enemies; sunlight and moisture. If you don’t have a preventive maintenance program in place, these two elements will keep money draining out of your wallet.
Here’s the problem with moisture and sunlight. When surfaces are painted, the paint film is resistant to water contact from rain and dew. The problem is when moisture gets between the surface and the paint film. The paint film weakens when loss of gloss occurs. Due to the exposure of UV rays, the life cycle of the paint film is reduced. The loss of gloss is a sign of deterioration and can be represented by “chalking”. This is one of the most common problems since the sunlight breaks down the paint’s binder leaving the pigment as powder on the surfaces. The heat of the summer and cold of winter makes the surfaces expand and contract. A good paint film will withstand the changes in temperature due to its flexibility properties.
