How Landscaping Affects Your Exterior House Paint

Did you know that your landscaping can affect the health of your home exterior, including the paint? It might not be a fact you think about much, but it is worth taking into consideration. If your exterior house paint (and the surfaces underneath) can last longer and avoid deterioration, there is every reason to give this aspect of landscaping some attention!

Here are a few ways your landscaping can be maintained to keep your exterior paint in great condition:

Give It Space

When a bush or tree is growing up against your home’s siding, it can cause several problems. One is that it restricts air movement and natural drying. This can lead to mildew and wood rot in some cases. Also, the plants may rub against the siding as they grow and with the movement of the wind, causing scratching and deterioration of the exterior paint.

Watch the Water

If you have an automatic watering system for your garden or yard, make sure it isn’t getting your house wet. While an occasional rain is fine here in the Oakland area, daily soaking is not good for anyone’s siding. Proper aiming avoids wasting water and keeps your house paint in good shape.

Clean Up What Falls

Some types of trees and bushes drop a lot of leaves and/or seeds throughout the year. If this piles up against your home, it can invite pests like mice and termites, and it also holds water, encouraging wood deterioration. To keep your home free from these troubles, make sure you pick up and dispose of fallen organic matter.

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”

— Tim Tyson

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

“My entire experience with MB Jesse was very professional. The crew were very friendly and super accommodating of my ridiculous schedule and geriatric pets in the house. The finished product, which was pretty much my entire house, far exceeds my expectations. Would definitely work with them again!”

— Heather Jordan

“Julie,Just to let you know I am very appreciative of your crew catching the plumbing/mold problem. It was very astute of them. I wanted to let you know that again your crew has done excellent work here, please pass this along to Mr. Jessee. There are some bumps in the road here, but the painting and your crew has not been one of them. Their work is the only thing going right currently, and this crew is very nice and respectful. It is much appreciated. Thank you again.”

“In all the years I've worked with MB Jessee, I'm always so impressed by your crews. They are so respectful of everything--you never even know they're there! Except that the paint looks amazing when they're gone. We've had one showing of our home and already have an offer. I'm sure it is because the paint looks so beautiful.”
