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.
