The Dangers Of Not Painting Your House

By August 14, 2020Uncategorized

You may not know this, but paint can actually protect your house from many different factors, and it might even help you save money in the long run.


Here are some things that can happen if your house is not painted frequently enough:



  • Weather damage:

Our home is constantly exposed to weather conditions and climate changes.  Here in San Diego, the sun can be intense for a big part of the year, which can cause a lot of damage to houses and buildings. Therefore, adding quality paint to it will protect the surface of your home from getting damaged for years to come.

At TruLine painting, we know how to protect your home against moisture and dust, too. They can slowly damage the walls over a certain period of time and there’s a good chance that you won’t notice until too late.



  •  Termite damage:

Termite damage is a major killer for wood-based homes; being able to identify this problem and correctly address it proactively is crucial if you want to save yourself some extremely expensive foundational repairs.

Evaluating your home’s siding before adding a fresh coat of paint can help you identify any possible insect damage early, and adding the paint itself can help stop an infestation in its tracks. Painting and staining seal off exposed areas that are prone to damage from termites and other wood-eating pests.



  • Damage to structural integrity:

Mold is a problem very common in houses all over the country. Mold and mildew can break down the structural integrity of your home’s wood surfaces. Unprotected wood is much more susceptible to water damage.

If your wood surfaces go unprotected, they can absorb water from rain and dew and begin to soften, swell and decay, thus leading to the replacement of boards or even entire decks or siding. Painting maintenance & upkeep may make a difference in the life of your painted surfaces. Both our interior and exterior painting protects your home for years to come.



  • Splinters:

Splinter is caused by many reasons, usually, them being due to the weather. Once they start, it’s hard to get them back to how they were before. In extreme cases, you may be able to save your toes from splinters and even add a year or two to the life of your wood deck or patio with products that are meant to permanently seal and resurface wood surfaces. However, patining it is the best way to prevent it from happening and keeping the wood healthy.
