Preparation is 80% of the job
Exterior Painting, A focus on longevity. If we lived in an area of the world with a perfect climate, with steady temperatures that do not fluctuate, low humidity, and no scorching sun then we would not have to worry about painting the exterior of our homes.
As they say “preparation is 80% of the job”. This is true if you completely disregard New England weather. When you are considering painting the exterior of your home you should first consider a couple of things. First is the current condition of the structure. Is the home peeling currently? Do you have a potential moisture problem within your siding or trim? Although there are several things to consider lets just talk about these two first as they cause the most problems.
Here in New England the constant changes in the weather, the cold temperatures, and the sun beating down on the paint cause the paint to chip, crack, and eventually peel. Another weather characteristic that can adversely affect the longevity of your paint job is humidity. If your home was painted in extreme levels of humidity then your home will be susceptible to peeling in the near future due to moisture that is trapped underneath the paint.
Once the issue or reason for the peeling has been identified then a professional painter can take the necessary steps to remedy the problem. This will assure the longevity of the workmanship he or she is offering to the customer.

Before we can apply a new product we must first identify potential problem areas on the house and take the necessary steps to fix the problems.
