Solution
2
Are you looking for experts providing exterior
painting in San Francisco Bay Area? Before you
further begin your search check out the post
below for understanding when and how to fix
exterior paint issues. Our homes exterior is
the first thing that people notice about it. It
also describes us, our lifestyle and personality.
That is why it is extremely important to keep
the exterior of our home refreshed and up to
date, and the best way to do that is painting it
yearly once!

However, there are several things that affect the
beauty of the paint film on the exterior of our
homes. From harsh sun rays to snow to rain to
hail, our house takes a lot of abuse. With long
term exposure to such weather conditions, the
paint starts failing eventually. However, when
you know how to identify the cause of the issue,
it will help you solve it with ease and keep your
home aesthetically appealing without much
investment. Let us have a look on some of the
commonly seen problems with exterior painting and
the different ways to fix them.

Problem 1 Peeling of Paints Causes Old Paint
Inadequate scraping of old paint coatings
before applying the new coatings is one of the
most common cause behind paint peeling. Solution
Before applying a fresh coat to the exterior make
sure to scrape out the old coat completely. You
can use pressure wash to clean the surface and
remove any peeling paint then scrape any leftover
peeling area and feather the edges using
sandpaper. Moisture When water finds its way
behind the paint coat applied, the moisture hence
caused results in peeling. Solution Ensure that
no leaks are there in the gutters or the roof and
the surface is dry and clean. Also, make sure to
caulk all the cracks and butt joints in the
siding well. Coating without Primer If the
paint coating is applied directly over the
surface such as bare wood or a glossy surface,
there is a loss of adhesion between the paint and
the substrate it applied to, hence using primer
before applying the coat is highly
advised. Solution Use primer where necessary
before applying the paint. You can take help of
experts to know whether primer application is
necessary or not. Problem 2 Blistering Causes M
oisture Due to the exposure of the paint
coating to high humidity, dew or rain shortly
after drying, the moisture is formed beneath the
coat. This moisture leads to blistering. Solution
Avoid painting late in the evening when dew
settles in or too close to the time when rain is
forecasted. Contamination Before applying the
paint if the surface is contaminated with dirt,
grease etc., then it causes loss of adhesion and
hence blistering.

Solution Scrape the surface off well. Hand
scraping the blistered areas to remove any
leftover paint that is not adhered to the surface
is recommended. Use sandpaper to feather the
edges. Also clean the surface up using pressure
washer. Excessive Heat Usually due to
prolonged exposure to direct sunlight some
surfaces tend to get excessively heated. Applying
paint coats to an excessively heated surface can
also cause blistering. Solution While applying
paint coats to the exterior of a home try to
focus on the sides that are not in contact with
direct sunlight. If the surface is extremely hot
then skip it and go to another side of the house.

Problem3  Alligatoring Cause Such a problem
is unique to oil-based paints. As oil-based
paints arent that flexible, over time it begins
to split and crack. This condition occurs due to
lack of expansion and contraction with the
surface beneath. Solution Remove old oil-based
coating as much as possible using hand scraping
or any other preferred method. If you are
applying oil-based paint to the new surface then
replace it with Acrylic latex paint.
