When you are looking to paint the exterior of your home, it is fundamentally important to look out for issues that have to be taken care of before they get worse over time and will need costly repairs.
Among these kinds of issues are blistering, and bubbles, which are not only unsightly but can cause damage to the exterior of your home in the long term.
These are the kinds of issues that start relatively small but get worse over time if not somehow addressed.
One reason that you will find yourself with bubbling on the exterior of your home is if you are painting in conditions where there is excessive moisture.
You may be wondering what would cause such conditions, and there are many of them, but among them is the possibility that a person would be painting in conditions outside that are less than nominally dry.
It should be obvious that you should not try to paint on an exceedingly humid or rainy day, but plenty of people do it, and the result is that they end up with bubbling paint.
As much as painting on an exceedingly humid day can cause bubbling, you will find yourself getting bubbling on the paint job if you paint in direct sunlight.
The extreme heat of the sun will cause bubbling and is entirely preventable so long as you know when the time is right to paint the exterior of your home.
The time of day that is ideal for painting the exterior of your home will vary, of course, with the season as you will notice that when the sun rises earlier or later, you will be able to time the painting of your home exterior accordingly.
The surfaces of the walls where you are looking to paint should be clean, at least to the best of your ability.
If you notice that there is any kind of dust or dirt on the exterior of your home, that, of course, needs to be removed before you would begin the painting process.
Things such as mildew and mold of course also will need to be removed from the exterior of your home as not only will they possibly cause blistering and bubbling if you paint the exterior of your home, they could also make people in your homesick who are sensitive to mildew or mold.
The simple solution is that you should properly clean the surface of the exterior of your home and give it time to dry because, as mentioned above, you don’t want to paint on a moist surface.
The resolution to blistering and bubbling is that you need to take some kind of tool to scrape down and sand down the areas that are afflicted by the blistering and bubbling.
You will then want to take sandpaper and properly sand down the area that had the blistering and bubbling on it.
You next will be able to apply a coat of primer to the areas where there had been blistering, perhaps larger than the area itself, so that you will not be able to notice where it ends.
Lastly, of course, you will want to apply at least one, if not two coats of paint.
