Importance of Light Carpentry Work Before and After Painting

When the wooden features of your home have damage or rotten areas, applying even the highest quality paint will fail if the issues are not fixed first. That is why light carpentry is connected to the painting process. You need to make sure that all surfaces are in proper shape before they are painted. If you are wondering why, below are some of the benefits of light carpentry work before and after painting.

Before Painting

To uncover underlying issues

If there is rot, mold, mildew, and other forms of wood deterioration on the wooden features of your home, note that these usually come from a deeper problem that needs to be resolved to prevent them from damaging your wooden features completely. When these issues are fixed, you and your contractor will be able to find the underlying issues harming your home.

For example, it is possible that your home has a pest problem, such as carpentry ants, termites, etc., and your deck or siding is suffering as a result. Our experienced light carpentry services can help you address the issues at hand and resolve them, keeping your home’s wooden features in good condition and ensuring that they will receive a good paint job afterward.

To strengthen your property

For some, light carpentry work involves aesthetic or cosmetic services, such as filling in cracks, straightening out trim, and more. But note that these services are also done to strengthen and protect your home. For instance, if the structural parts of your deck are rotting, it is at risk of collapsing, which can be dangerous for those living on the property.

Our light carpenters at Custom Painting, Inc. have the right tools and knowledge to fix or replace these deteriorating components in your property to ensure that they remain strong and safe for use.

To guarantee an exceptional paint job.

For paint to look good and last longer on surfaces, there are a few key factors, and one is that surfaces need to be sturdy, clean, and receptive to new coats of paint or stain. With this, light carpentry can help ensure that these parameters are met.

Our light carpentry services make for more structurally sound features. When damaged or rotted wooden surfaces are fixed or replaced, they ensure a fresh, clean surface. In addition to that, sanding them down also increases their receptive qualities to new coats of paint. Therefore, these are necessary preparations before painting wooden surfaces, and they are all under our light carpentry services.

After Painting

To match your newly painted interiors or exteriors

Seeing your newly painted home will inspire and guide you into adding or changing wooden features in your home. For example, you may choose to have your main door painted or repainted after the exterior of your home has been painted. This way, you can decide more easily whether to have your door painted, stained, or install a new one to match your newly painted home. No matter what option you pick, our light carpentry services at Custom Painting, Inc. can help you.

To provide regular maintenance

As we’ve mentioned earlier, light carpentry services are not only about aesthetics. If you are aiming to maintain the beauty of your home, it is important to do regular maintenance. This includes inspecting your wooden features for any signs of damage regularly. While new paint helps protect your home’s surfaces, there are still environmental factors that can damage them over time. Once you notice small signs of damage, such as discoloration or warping, you may call us for our light carpentry services to resolve the issue as soon as possible and prevent further damage.
