My Winter Weekend Project is STILL Not Done

Spring has officially arrived in Kansas City, which means that many home owners are abandoning their weekend gone winter-long-still-not-finished project for outdoor projects.

Now is the time to ask yourself:  Will I EVER complete that indoor project?

Be realistic. Do you enjoy painting the interior of your house THAT much?!  What about all of that tape?  The prep work?  Cutting in the edges?  Oh, and the ever-so-fun CLEAN UP!

Do yourself (and your family) a favor.  Don’t start your spring without clearing off your winter project “to do” list.  Let A-1 Coatings Painting finish (or start) your interior painting project and get it off of your list.

“DIY” might take LESS out of your pocket book, but it also takes MORE time away from your family (and you).

Should I Paint My House?

A question most home owners ask themselves isn’t SHOULD I paint my house, as much as it is WHEN should I paint my house.

The popular website, How Stuff Works, states “How often you need to repaint the exterior of your home depends on a few variables: where you live, the type of materials your house is made with, and the quality of the materials you use for the project.”

At A-1 Coatings Painting, we are firm believers in “an ounce of prevention,” and recommend that home owners in the Kansas City area consider repainting the exterior of their homes every 6-8 years.

What’s the point?

Aside from general aesthetics, choosing not to paint the exterior of  your home could create many issues, such as wood rot. Wood rot can appear overnight if the home is not protected by a good quality paint. Additionally, fixing wood rot can oftentimes cost as much as painting the exterior of the home.

Home Improvement Ideas

Home improvements are always in style.  In the winter months, we tend to focus on the inside of the house, while during the spring and summer, we focus outdoors.

One of A-1 Coatings Painting’s biggest home project for customers in the spring is deck power washing.  Once the rainy season is over, or if there is a stretch of dry weather, it’s also a great time to stain the deck.
