Common Problems with Groton, CT Residential Homes
Groton is one of the largest towns that we serve, both in area and population. There are many types of homes in Groton, from historic homes built in the 18th-19th centuries to modern homes built in the 2000s, and we have painted all types. Signs in front of our current projects can be found at any given time in Poquonock Bridge, Noank, Groton Long Point, Center Groton, around Electric Boat, near the Sub Base, or in the Long Hill section of town.
Mold and Mildew
Most of the denser population areas are near the Thames River or Long Island Sound, and with that comes these pesky microorganisms. We recommend pressure washing your wood, aluminum, or vinyl siding with a mold-killing solvent. It is also a good idea to regularly trim the plant life on the shady sides of your home in order to allow them to dry out faster.
Groton homes built in the 1960s to the mid-1980s tend to have aluminum siding. Most people do not realize it, but aluminum siding is a great surface to paint! Over time the protective coating on aluminum siding breaks down and turns to dust (or chalk). This is a good sign, as the coating is taking the beating from the sun, rain, and salt air instead of your home’s structure. However, it eventually needs to renew that protection. We can pressure wash and scrub off the chalkiness and apply two coats of top-quality paint. Your siding will be refreshed, and you can expect ten plus years of life out of your new coating. Aluminum does not experience the moisture pitfalls that wood has which means extra longevity for the paint job.
Homes built in the mid-1980s to present day in Groton very often are sided with vinyl siding. Like aluminum siding, vinyl siding is another great surface to paint. The one difference is that we need to be careful with the color chosen. Selecting the same color or lighter is perfectly fine. However, painting your siding with a darker color than the original may cause the siding to buckle. The darker color will absorb more heat than the siding was designed to handle. Sherwin Williams does have a family of vinyl-safe colors that allow some leeway in choosing darker colors. These colors are formulated to dissipate the heat from the sun.
A very professional company, that provided excellent services.
