Living in Colorado Springs offers breathtaking mountain views and a unique lifestyle, but it also presents challenges for maintaining your home, especially when it comes to exterior paint. At AB Painting and Drywall, we’re here to help you understand how the high altitude of Colorado Springs, at about 6,000 feet above sea level, can impact your home’s exterior paint, and provide expert solutions to ensure your home stays looking its best.

The Challenges of High Altitude

Colorado Springs’ elevated location means more exposure to intense sunlight and strong UV rays. This increased exposure can speed up the deterioration of your home’s exterior paint, leading to issues like fading, chalking, and peeling. Additionally, the region’s weather extremes, with hot summers and freezing winters, can cause the paint to expand and contract, resulting in cracks and other damage. These cracks can allow water to seep in, potentially causing damage such as wood rot or mold growth. Therefore, it’s crucial to select durable paint that can withstand these conditions and ensure careful painting to protect our homes and maintain their appearance.

Effects of the Sun

The sun’s powerful UV rays have the ability to penetrate through the layers of paint on your home’s exterior. When this happens, it can lead to the colors fading over time and the paint losing its ability to protect your home. As a result, your home becomes more vulnerable to damage from various elements, such as rain, snow, and wind. Additionally, the deterioration of the paint’s protective properties can impact your home’s curb appeal, making it look worn out and less attractive to passersby. It’s essential to address this issue by choosing high-quality paint that offers superior UV resistance and taking proactive steps to maintain and protect your home’s exterior.

Choosing the Right Paint

To combat these challenges, it’s essential to invest in high-quality paint that is specifically designed to withstand the unique conditions of Colorado Springs.
