It’s that time of year again! Let’s talk woodcare maintenance.

A pristine wood home is something to be proud of. Here at Colorful Concepts Painting, we value our customers. Whether they are past, current, or future, our #TrueToTheFinish team stays committed. Which is why we stress the importance of woodcare maintenance and provide you with the information necessary to avoid repairs that could cost thousands of dollars.

Wood homes require regular upkeep and maintenance. The wood expands and contracts with changes in humidity and temperatures. As a result, if left unprotected, paint will chip and crack, putting stress on caulked seams around windows and doors. If the caulk separates and fails to keep out moisture, water can seep in and rot the siding. Even species of wood that have a natural resistance to rot (such as redwood, cypress, or cedar) may decay if not properly protected from the elements.

Whenever someone asks, we recommend these tasks be performed annually or every few years:

  • Annual exterior power washing with detergent
  • Annual exterior inspection of Wood surfaces, caulking, coating
  • Annual exterior inspection for weather, sun or insect damage
  • Regular coating of handrail systems and decks
  • Regular coating of entire exterior

Luckily, we provide a home maintenance plan that allows you to enjoy your wood home while we ensure it’s maintained, year after year, for the life of your home!
