When To Paint Your Home

Homeowners often don’t know when it’s time to update their paint job and walls go untouched for far too long.  With a few simple tips, Protek wants to help you identify when it’s time for a paint update.

Protek painting color expert, Kory Cheatham, can help you decide when to paint your home. Take a look at the signs below; if any of these sound and look familiar, it’s time to give your walls some love.

  • Trends aren’t just for fashion, they apply to paint colors, too!  While your living room color might have been the must-have a few years ago, that doesn’t necessarily mean it still works today. On-trend colors are perfect for accent walls.  Want a color that is more timeless? Neutrals are always in-style and easy to match. They also look great with a pop of color such as blue or yellow.
  • If the current paint is chipped, peeling, fading or blistering, it is definitely time for an upgrade. Make sure to remove the old paint, clean the surface and repair any cracks before applying your new color.
  • Some sections of your wall may be exposed to sunlight, which will make them look lighter than other sections. Get a fresh look and return to a uniform finish back by repainting and updating your color so all walls have the same look and shade.

Whether you want to freshen up the whole house, or change the look of a single room, paint is a simple solution that won’t break the bank.

Three Reasons Why Your Home Needs Gutters

  1.  Foundation Problems-The expansion and contraction of the soil that surrounds your home is the number one reason for slab failure.  After a period of rainy weather, the soil around the perimeter of your home expands as it becomes saturated with moisture.  A dry, hot summer following the rain can cause the soil around your foundation to contract and pull away.  As this cycle repeats, support to the foundation can be compromised leading to cracked masonry as well as sticking doors and windows.  A properly designed and installed gutter system keeps the soil surrounding your home at a consistent moisture level by directing roof runoff safely away from the house.
  2. Staining of Masonry and Siding-Rainwater cascading off an unguttered roof will hit the ground with enough force to cause a splashback.  Within this splashback are dirt, grass, and minerals that end up on the exterior of your home.  Over a short period of time a stain appears that can be difficult to remove or hide.
  3. Damage to Landscaping- Plants, flowers, mulch and soil located under the drip line of an unguttered roof can suffer from the water runoff of a thunderstorm.  Additionally, this runoff can result in an overwatering condition that could permit harmful fungus to develop as well as attract ants, roaches, and termites.

cabinetsWhat’s the most popular look in cabinets right now?
“The most popular look right now is cabinetry that matches the trim in the rest of the house—most often white. We’re also being asked to create faux finishes with a ‘tea stain’ of green or chocolate on top of cream.”

What one mistake do homeowners make when painting cabinets?
“We’re often asked to create complicated finishes using a combination of several colors to create a marbling effect. This is a bad idea because kitchen cabinets take a beating and, as life happens to them, those custom finishes are going to be impossible to touch up.”

What advice do you have for homeowners who want to wake up old cabinets?
“Hire professionals to give you a professional-looking finish you can maintain yourself. Ask them for a simple, single-color finish then change out the hardware yourself.”
