Painting a house is a big job. And each exterior surface has its own unique painting challenges. Trico Painting is ready to help. We are experienced at painting wood and composite siding, and know how to tackle any painting challenge that comes your way.

Common Problems: Painting Wood Siding

Painting wood siding can be full of ups and downs. And when you take things outside, they get more complicated.

These are two of the most common problems you’ll encounter when your home exterior includes painted wood siding.

  • Blistering: Paint breaks and blisters on wood surfaces for several reasons. Moisture intrusion often plays a role. It can also happen if the surface was painted improperly the first time. Improper painting isn’t necessarily due to negligence. It can happen when paints and primers are mismatched with the surface. And if there were temperature fluctuations during painting, blistering can happen as a result of those changes, especially when heat and humidity come into play.
  • Peeling: If wood was wet at all when the last painting/repainting was done, you’ll eventually get paint peeling. And since most of the surface was probably painted at the same time, more peeling will likely appear throughout your exterior surface as time goes on. It can feel overwhelming when you notice it’s gone beyond needing a touch-up and become a large scale problem.

Common Problems: Painting Composite Siding

Composite siding is made of a blend (or composite) of various scrap woods held together with resins. Along with the challenges we talked about for other wood siding, composite presents some unique challenges:

  • Mismatching: Mismatching paints and primers with the surfaces is more of a problem when there are multiple surfaces to consider in your composite. That could impact your paint finish and lead to costly repaints and repairs.
  • Lack of Preparation: Pressure washing is an important first step for painting composite. It’s necessary not only to fully remove dirt and debris from the surface, but to assess surface damage and determine its makeup, so you know which materials to use for repair and repainting.

The good news is that while these problems are daunting for you to take on alone, you don’t have to do that.
