Here in the Clark County and Portland Area a lot of homes were built in the construction boom between 2002-2006. The majority of these homes had very poor paint jobs due to water down paint, contractors trying to keep costs down most insisted on one thin coat of paint and just quick paint jobs. Many of these homes have cheap caulk, if any at all, applied that has cracked and shrunk over the last few years. If your homes paint is starting to fade or lose the crisp look it is most likely time for paint. If you homes paint is flaking, chipping, if you can see the primer or even bare wood, you are WAY past time for paint.
Caulking your home prevents water and pest damage and helps insulate your home. If your home doesn’t have caulk or if it is cracking, it is time to strip out the old caulk and apply high quality caulk. High quality caulk is uncommon because it is more expensive, requires twice the dry time, and is more difficult to work with. Regardless of the disadvantages, we recommend everyone use quality caulk for long lasting performance.
