Picking Sheen for Your Florida Home
Perfect Painters & More of Orlando are your trusted professionals for all of your exterior painting projects in Central Florida. When painting the exterior of your home, a lot of factors need to be taken into consideration. If you live in Central Florida you should be using an exterior paint with a satin finish. This sheen will act as a protective coating. Florida brings all kinds of rain, wind, and scorching UV rays. You need to choose a sheen with hard properties that will stand up against the moisture and UV rays. We recommend Satin finish on the body of your home. In some situations we would recommend using semi gloss on all exterior doors, trim, gutters, and downspouts. An additional benefit of satin finish is that the hard properties make cleaning the exterior of your home easier and prevents build up of mildew, or other organic growth. If you decide to use flat paint, it will only be able to protect the substrate for so long. The flat paint has little to no hard properties. Without these hard properties your home will not be protected from moisture, paint will fade faster and it will be prone to mildew buildup.
