Why you shouldn’t paint your home’s exterior on your own

waterproof paint

DIY tasks range from the simple and straightforward to the drawn-out and difficult. Painting your home’s exterior with a water repellent coating definitely falls into the latter category. And while painting your home’s interior is definitely achievable, its difficulty pales in comparison to painting your home’s exterior – there are just too many pitfalls. With hopes of explaining just how difficult applying waterproof paint is, and contrasting and comparing it with the effectiveness of a professional service, we have put together this informational post. From the financial considerations you have to make before starting to apply weather seal paint to the outer surface of your home, to how long you can expect your hard work to pay dividends for, you will find everything you need to know here.

Doesn’t make sense from a financial standpoint

From a financial perspective, it may be tempting to take the DIY approach. Surely all you need is a tin of paint and you are ready to go? Unfortunately, it simply couldn’t be further from the truth. Applying a coat of paint to your home sounds simple but is actually a laborious process that requires the best weatherproof paint and a detailed understanding of the right methods and techniques. Without this, before you even consider the substandard final product you are likely to be left with, you have to also consider the unintended ill effects – it is somewhat of an inevitability that stray flecks of paint will end up on windows, walls and doors that it wasn’t supposed to. You can incur additional financial damage you hadn’t predicted beforehand, all without accomplishing your task competently.

Likely to result in a less durable finish

Typical masonry paints aren’t capable of fortifying your home’s exterior for an extended period of time. They don’t have the necessary chemical makeup to resist the weather. Weather proof paint wall coatings meanwhile, as well as being many, many times thicker than conventional exterior masonry paint, are also imbued with the latest in weather-resistive technology – silicone. To ensure you have the correct waterproof paint product for your home, as well as the right people applying it, you need to enlist the services of wall coatings specialists.

End result is inferior

In summary, not entrusting the entire process to a professional service is a mistake. From start to finish, you can rest assured that the every single step is executed to perfection. With a wealth of expertise that stems from close to twenty years of applying damp proof paint for exterior walls for homeowners throughout the UK, the All Weather Coating team can provide a comprehensive service that meets all of your requirements. A half-baked DIY approach simply cannot match the thoroughness of a professional one, leaving you frustrated with the amount of time and effort you invested and ultimately disappointed with the end result.
