Glossy finish paints also may be a logical choice where an exterior will need to be washed frequently, such as in a climate where wind-blown dust is a problem, or in a home where active kids may soil the siding.

Depending on the severity of the deterioration, you can even resort to using a heavy duty, professional grade, industrial caulking.[6]
We were more than happy with the work Southern Painting did for us!  They were very patient with us during a bumpy time in life....causing one delay after another (on our end) and when we were finally able to get started, they were ready to go!  Their crew was efficient, considerate and careful.  They did a great job painting our exterior while protecting everything else from any overspray.  Our house looks beautiful and refreshed!  I highly recommend!  We worked ...
