5 Reasons To Paint Your Home
Painting Can Save You From Extensive Termite Damage
Termites destroy homes all over America every year, calculating in the billions of dollars.
Unfortunately, there's no way of totally stopping these pesky eaters, but there are ways to slow down these wood-destroying machines.
Painting does not stop a termite infestation, but paint can seal and protect your home's wood against these wood-destroying invaders.
The wood on the outside of your home is most vulnerable to termites and other wood-destroying organisms.
A protective layer of paint from your chimney down to ground level will ensure that you have the best protection overall.
Painting your home and putting up a glistening shield can make all the difference to guard against these airborne bugs.
The other type of termite doesn't fly but lives beneath the surface of the earth. This eating machine is called the Subterranean Termite. This intelligent attacker will channel up from under the home with mud tubes to your home's foundation and then penetrate it.
If a wood foundation is rotted, it is easier for these colonies to feast on the exposed wood.
Traditional termites, otherwise known as Drywood termites, will swarm after the first rain of a warm spring day.
These types of termites are like traditional flying insects. Termites can land on the wood of your home and then penetrate it by eating its cellulose.
The best defense against these types of flying critters is to contact Doug's So Cal Painting today so that we can put up a glistening barrier of premium paint tomorrow.

Protect Your Home From The Elements
A fresh coat of paint on the exterior of your house will protect your number one investment from the harsh summer heat and the winter's rain.
Winter rains expose moisture to your home, and by painting the exterior stucco and exposed wood, you're protecting your number one asset against harmful organisms such as fungus or dry rot or a home's worst invader - the termite.
The summer's harsh sunlight will have damaging effects on your home's wood and stucco.
Blistering paint and exposed wood will start to decay and compromise your home's outside surfaces, leading to expensive and unforeseen repairs.
Putting on a fresh coat of paint from Doug's So Cal Painting will guard against the winter and summer months' harsh elements.
If you're planning on selling your home and thinking it might not be worth painting because it's too expensive, think again.
Repainting the exterior of your home can have a tremendous effect on your home's bottom line.
You can expect approximately a 55% return on investment from painting just the exterior of your home.
Not only will you see a significant return on investment, but you also bring up your home's curb appeal significantly to potential buyers.
Even if you're not selling, you could be saving money now by protecting the exterior of your home today versus putting it off for some years into the future.

Painting Helps Control Mold, Mildew & Wood Rot
Having constant moisture sitting on exposed wood or stucco surfaces creates an environment where mold and mildew will thrive.
Moisture slowly deteriorates the wood surfaces resulting in weak or softwood, typically known as "Wood Rot," or "Dry Rot."
When it becomes time to sell your home, a termite inspection is part of any selling process.
An inspector will come out to inspect your home before or during the sale process.
The termite inspector's main job is to look for three major things: 1. Termites, 2. Fungus, 3. Wood Rot/Dry Rot.
If termites are found, a termite inspector will notate that on their inspection report.
Termites can be taken care of by localized treatments or removal and replacement of damaged wood, fumigation, or other means of eradication.
If fungus or wood rot is found, that's a much different outcome.
Once mold and mildew take hold of a wood surface, it's almost near impossible to fix it.
This type of wood-destroying organism usually means that some wood portion will have to be removed and/or replaced.
If localized treatment can be done, then that's great! But, if the wood is totally compromised, then expensive repairs will need to occur before you can sell a home, and you will have to replace the structure's damaged portions first.
If your structure has softwood, otherwise known as "Wood Rot" or "Dry Rot," that wood surface can no longer support the structure's weight. If this occurs, you will start to notice the sagging and buckling of your structure.
Painting a home structure regularly can seal the wood from the harsh elements. Putting a protective layer of paint on your home makes it harder for mold, mildew, and rot to set in.
