Refreshing Touch Ups for Your Home’s Exterior

FCI Painting in Naples FL discusses refreshing touch ups for your home

Even if your home isn’t ready for a full renewal with a complete exterior paint job, there are numerous refreshing touch ups that you should consider that may help bring new life to your home’s overall exterior. Certain areas of the home can weather faster than others, creating a mismatch that can depress the overall bright look of your home. Simple touch ups, like pressure cleaning, accent painting, deck staining, and roof washing can add enough of a refreshing touch that it may look like the whole house has been repainted.

Touching Up Accent Features Brightens the Whole Home

Accent features of your home, such as doors, shutters and trim, tend to take more of a beating and weather and fade faster than the rest of the home. And, as accent features, they tend to bring out and brighten the rest of the home’s color. By renewing their bright look, you’ll give new life to the rest of the home. FCI painting can quickly and efficiently touch up such accent features with minimal disruption to your day-to-day living.

Decks, porches and other similar outside features also tend to receive more wear and tear than the rest of the home. A tired looking deck or porch with fading color can make the entire home look aged. When you restore your deck or porch with fresh paint or stain, not only will it look brand new, but will extend into the rest of the home to make it seem refreshed.

Pressure Cleaning Brightens and Preserves Exterior Paint

One sure-fire means of renewing the fresh painted look of your home, is with pressure washing. FCI’s home pressure cleaning service safely and effectively removes dirt and airborne contaminants that slowly build up on home exteriors over time. Not only does the pressure cleaning serve to restore the pristine sheen of the original paint job, but it will help preserve the paint job by removing contaminants that would otherwise wear away and degrade it.

FCI’s New Reverse Osmosis Waterfed Pole Cleaning System.

Speaking of pressure washing, FCI Painting now offers a new service designed to keep your windows clean without streaking, stains, spotting or buildup. Similar to low-pressure cleaning used to clean the more delicate features of your home, our soft window wash uses a unique pole system to spray your windows with low pressure, reverse-osmosis-purified water. This soft wash provides a window wash so clean and clear that you’ll hardly believe the glass is still there. Our soft window wash can be scheduled for residential homes, and is available to condominiums, housing associations and commercial buildings as part of their monthly or quarterly maintenance services.

With more than 20 years of experience, FCI Painting is well attuned to the painting, cleaning and maintenance needs of residential homes and commercial buildings throughout Southwest Florida. Whether a simple touch-up job or complete exterior re-painting, we guarantee that you will be completely satisfied with the results.

Painting Projects for Summertime Fun

FCI Painting in Naples offers assistance for summer projects

With its long days and warm temperatures most people agree that summertime is the season for having fun. It’s also a perfect season for taking care of projects around the house that might otherwise be neglected due to time constraints, weather or other factors.

With that in mind, summer is the perfect time for taking care of those long-neglected or never-considered painting projects. A fresh coat of paint will help brighten up your home and surroundings no matter where applied.

The Home’s Smaller Details and Accessories

Whether a barrier, enclosure or strictly ornamental, many fences help frame their homes. As such, a fresh coat of paint on a fence can serve to help bring out the grandeur of a home, similar to how a good picture frame can draw out a painting or photograph.

Trellises tend to weather quicker than fences, and, as adornments, are often neglected. But a fresh coat of paint on a trellis can definitely help brighten the garden and surrounding yard.

Speaking of weather, door and window trim, along with the doors themselves, tend to weather over time quicker than the rest of a house. Touching up those smaller detail areas between major paint jobs goes a long way in keeping a home looking showroom ready.

While treehouses can hold a special charm, for both children and their parents alike, for some reason many treehouses are considered finished when the last nail has been pounded. Why not give that treehouse the same attention to detail—and color scheme—as the main home?

In a similar vein, perhaps tend to that long-neglected shed with a fresh coat of paint?

Why Not Paint the Cave?

A man’s home may be his castle, but he truly only rules the roost in his man cave. No matter what form of private enclave—be it garage, storage room, or whatever—most men tend to be neglectful of its aesthetics. So what better summertime project than to up your game by personalizing it via a paint job. School colors, favorite sports team colors, hunter’s camouflage, or whatever colors speak to your style might look great on your garage floor, walls, or whatever space serves as your in-home hideaway. In fact, no matter what color scheme you might choose, a new paint job will undoubtedly make your cave the envy of all your cro-magnon, cave-dwelling brethren.
