Why is the paint peeling on the exterior of my house?

Do you look at the exterior of your Westchester House and say Ughh!!

Does the exterior of your house look tired?

Is Your Neighbor putting up siding but you can’t afford it?

Is your paint peeling off the exterior of your house?

At Gallo Painting we have seen it all. Your once beautiful Westchester home now has paint peeling and cracking on the exterior facades of your prized home. It may seem that only decades of neglect or bad painting could lead to that sort of disrepair; however, high levels of indoor humidity along with your previous choice of low-quality exterior paint can create the perfect storm for this type of exterior paint damage to occur over a relatively short period of time.

Most Westchester homes build up excess indoor humidity during the summer. Yes, you know Westchester County summers can be hot with terrible humidity and air conditioners help to prevent a buildup of moisture indoors during the summer months. A Typical Westchester winter can be the real source of external paint damage as usually nothing is in place to remove the humidity generated by running heaters.

This humidity seeps through walls and begins to cling to the rear face of the external siding of your home, which is often wood. As the sun bears down on the home’s exterior wall, it pulls at the moisture from the saturated wood, drawing it toward the surface of the siding. What happens next is all too common in Westchester County. As the water is pulled through the exterior paint surface, that surface becomes cracked and begins to peel and flake.

To prevent this problem, it’s necessary to invest in a paint that provides a breathable exterior surface.

The experts Gallo Paint will walk you through options and help find an external paint that has a surface that allows water vapor to pass outside of the home without harming the exterior paint job. As an added bonus, many of these exterior house paints also resists mildew.

We are very pleased with the results! Professional and punctual. Finished ahead of estimate too! Planning to hire again in the fall.

Al and his team were originally supposed to come in just to paint our apartment. We did not have a good experience with our original contractor and Al and his team came in and cleaned up the mess that our nightmare of a contractor left us with. Al's team was trustworthy, quick, clean, affordable and did a fantastic job with our project. We would recommend Al and his company to anyone! Thanks for saving the day!

The painters did an excellent job on both the interior and exterior of my house. In addition to patching and sanding the walls, they also gave my home a flawless color update. I would definitely recommend.

We recently had our basement renovated and hired Gallo Painting to do the entire space. The job was neat and professional and the price for all of the work done was fair. Al is a great problem solver who fabricated some small doors to cover an upgraded electrical panel. I was searching for similar doors online and they were several hundred dollars. His work is perfect and was much less. I can't wait to have them come back and do my upstairs!

We have been using Gallo Paint and Wallpapering Company for the past 10 years! We recently moved into a new house and Al Gallo and his painters were still the best. They are master painters, as well as punctual, clean, neat, and very reliable. The crews work well together and are friendly and competent. I would highly recommend them for any work you need done!
