Weather Conditions and Coastal Region factors

Hot or cold, rainy or humid, weather has a significant effect on paint adhesion and the drying time of exterior house painting. Living near the ocean has its downside, and can take a serious toll on the exterior of your house. Humidity combined with the oceanside means moisture build-up can happen faster, making mould and mildew more likely. Living near the ocean leaves your home susceptible to increased moisture build-up on the sides and roof. Mould can eat away at your paint. Power washing regularly (every few months) will help prevent mould from building up.

Depending on how close your house is to the beach; wind and sand can also be factors which negatively impact the exterior of your house. When sand is being constantly blown onto the exterior of your house, it can leave a scratchy effect, which will also inevitably wear down your paint. Finishing your exterior paint with a sealant is one way to prevent this from happening. Though keep in mind, sealants won’t protect the paint forever and should be freshened up on a regular basis. Salt water is another element which can affect your house, exterior paint can fade, peel and chip as a result of constant exposure to salt water. Sealants help prevent/ delay some of these effects, however they are not a permanent fix. Your home is susceptible all year-round as ‘sea-spray’ can occurs through the year. The miniature salt crystals settle under the paint surfaces and as they build up, week-after-week, month-after-month, they eventually cause the paint on your house to slowly chip off, particularly
near corners, ridges, ledges and window sills.

The key to prevention is maintenance! Sealants are a good way to help prevent the salt water corrosion. However, they are not the be-all and end-all. Regular maintenance is required, this includes power washing, repainting and resealing. If all this is done on a regular basis your home’s exterior will remain intact, making your property all the more attractive and valuable.

As we are based in a coastal region, weather and oceanic elements are a big factor in all of our painting projects. As a result we only make use of the highest quality painting products, which are guaranteed to last through all-weather conditions; Plascon, Dulux, Midas, and Sika are the brands we endorse above all others, they will stand the test of time.
