The Barnstable Painter house washing service on Cape Cod is available all year round, depending on the weather. We get most of our calls in the spring and the fall, when areas of green algae and mold appear on the exterior walls of your home. While power washing may seem straight forward, if done incorrectly it is quite easy to do irreparable damage to both the house and the surrounding vegetation and landscaping.
By not hiring a professional, you may run the risk of using too high a pressure which may pulverize the shingles or siding on your house. This weakens the wood and is visually unappealing as it makes the wood look fuzzy. Other damage that may occur includes blown windows, torn screens, water projected under the soffits, shingles and rake boards, and water blown into vents causing serious damage and mold.
It is important that you use a professional, experienced power washer to clean the following:
- Swimming Pool
- Lawn Furniture
We highly recommend your deck be power washed every two years, preferably in the Spring or Summer. Your shingles and siding should be done every 2-3 years depending on your location and exposure to the elements. In all cases, an appropriate preservative should follow the power wash when the surfaces have dried. This ensures a better and longer lasting look to your property.
During our power washing appointments our trained professionals at The Barnstable Painter utilize this ideal opportunity to take a detailed look at every square inch of the home’s exterior. If any problems are seen, for example rainwater may be getting into the structure of the house and causing unseen damage, we can advise you and help you to investigate further and if required, repair the damage.
We make house washing easy.
