For today’s eighth and final installment in my series on home repairs that you should not avoid, I want to discuss peeling paint.

If you have paint that you have not touched up in a long time, it will begin to peel. As it peels, water will seep into the wood, causing it to deteriorate. With each new problem, the expenses will grow exponentially.

Paint will typically begin to peel in areas of the house that are most exposed to the sun. Check those areas of your home first and scrape off the peeling paint, touch it up, or apply a fresh coat altogether. It is a relatively inexpensive gesture that could end up saving you thousands of dollars in the long-run, especially if you plan to sell the home or end up having to replace any damaged wood.

I recommend having the paint refreshed every other year, just to ensure that the minor problems are taken care of before they escalate into bigger headaches.

If you have any questions or need referrals to painters or handymen, please feel free to reach out to me. I would be glad to help.
