Consider these painting projects, suggested by an expert Calabasas painter.
Midsummer is one of the much-loved times of the year. The weather is perfect, the days are bright, and the conditions are ideal for some painting projects! Midsummer tasks take little time and effort, but they can make a big difference in the appearance of your home.
Before the dull autumn sets in, squeeze in these projects into your midsummer days. Without further ado, here are five of the most important summer painting projects for your home!
Repaint the front door.
The eyes are the window to the soul, as the door is to your home. You want your home to appear welcoming, clean, and pleasant, right? Start with your front door. Take a good look at the painted appearance and overall condition. Is it fading? Damaged? Lackluster? Whatever the case, giving your door a new coat of paint (along with a proper primer) will elevate the appearance of your entire home and enhance the impression that it makes on all those who visit this summer!
Remove mildew from the exterior.
High temperatures and occasional drizzle create a perfect environment for mold and mildew to fester on your home’s exterior. Similarly, the lawn mower spews up dust and dirt that provide the essential nutrients for the fungi. Fight the problem by cutting back foliage and treat affected areas with a solution of one part bleach to three parts water. Scrub the mildew away, then rinse the surface thoroughly.
Re-stain the deck.
During the summer, you’re likely to find that your outdoor deck is the social hub of your home. For this reason, you’ll want it to look its best at all times. Restore a dull and drab deck with a stain or paint. If the finish on the deck is wearing away, then power-wash the surface, make any needed repairs, and apply two coats of top-quality latex stain to make it summer-ready!
Most midsummer painting projects only take a few hours to complete, leaving plenty of time to crank up the grill! With these tips and maintaining your home’s exterior, your house will be left ready for summer and beyond.
