MAKE PAINT LAST

The Family Handyman - - BEST PRO TIPS -

Here’s the most com­mon peel­ing sce­nario for ex­te­rior paint: Over time, paint de­vel­ops tiny cracks. Then mois­ture gets be­hind the paint, weak­en­ing the paint’s bond and caus­ing peel­ing. Left alone, that process spreads and ac­cel­er­ates. For you, that means days of te­dious scrap­ing be­fore you can re­paint. But you can avoid that by touch­ing up cracks ev­ery year. Paint­ing spots that don’t look bad (yet) may feel like a waste of time, but it will save you ma­jor work later.
