Common Problems and Our Recommendation


Peeling can happen on many new construction homes down the road, since a very thin layer of paint was applied. After 7-10 years the underside of the siding will start to peel, specifically on the North side of the home. The North side of the home experiences less sunshine, so moisture slowly wears away the paint on the underside of the siding boards. The lower siding boards experience this more than the siding boards on the 2 nd story. It is also very common for areas where moisture/snow accumulates on the trim to begin peeling. These areas take a lot of damage from moisture sitting on them to freezing then thawing. Once the paint begins to peel, those areas on your home are exposed to the weather. When water gets into the wood you'll begin to see it get gray and rot. Any areas of your home that are peeling will most likely be the same areas that will peel in the future. Eventually this leads to an exposed board if this is not taken care of properly. We recommend that you take special care of these kinds of areas. When we see this, we sand the area so it can smooth out the edge between what has peeled off and what has not peeled. Sanding will also create a better surface for us to apply the paint onto. Finally, after the area has been scraped and sanded, we recommend using a high quality primer to seal this area. The sanded wood creates a rough surface for the primer to bond to, and the primer will create a better surface for the paint to bond to as well than if we just apply paint.


Cracking is one of the most common paint problems in Oklahoma. Builders use inexpensive and low quality caulking when painting your house and as the temperatures change, your house expands and contracts. This happens over and over again, so the caulking doesn't hold up and it begins to break down and crack, leaving your home exposed. This leads to boards warping away from the house or boards rotting from the inside out. In order to properly protect your home, we recommend resealing all of these cracks with a siliconized acrylic caulking. Silicone is more flexible than standard contractors caulking, that is why siliconized acrylic caulking will breathe with the house, hold paint, and most importantly last longer.


Fading or chalking is another very common problem in Oklahoma. Sunny days at high altitude blasts your home with UV rays breaking down the resin in the paint. Resin is the primary component in paint that protects the home. When the house starts to fade, this is an indication that there is minimal protection on your home. We recommend a power wash to wash off any dust and residue from the chalking. For sides that experience the most sunlight, we also recommend a second coat or a coat of primer for extra protection. This will provide a higher level of resin and protection, ensuring that it will not fade as quickly so you can avoid costly replacement costs in the future and a longer lasting paint job.

Nail Holes

Moisture can sit in nail holes around the house and do damage to your siding. You'll see areas where there are nail holes beginning to swell due to moisture getting into those areas. If you only paint over these, there will still be a small pocket for water to sit. We recommend caulking these nails holes to leave an even surface for moisture to flow off of rather than sitting there breaking down the paint.
