What are the tips to protect home paints during rains?

Choice Of Exterior Paints: It is very important to choose good quality paints for your exterior as it helps in durability and also refrains seepage. The inferior quality paint is much prone to moisture build-up and creates patches on the interior wall surface and in turn, it leads to blistering or peeling of paints (read our blog about paint failures).

Paint Your Exteriors Before The Rain Hits: It is advisable to paint your house before the rainy seasons ideally between January to April. The water content or moisture in the walls remains for a longer time and that is the reason why the painting gets damaged even when it’s painted after the rainy season.

Check The Roof Or Walls For Any Cracks: Check the roof or walls for any cracks. If any crack is found repair it immediately. After repair, apply a coating of waterproofing compound over the roof/walls.

A Step Towards Waterproof paints: The markets are in with waterproof paints and are extremely useful for countering the rainy season.
