Prepare Your Coral Gables Home to be Painted

Now that we are in the middle of spring and the kids are off school, it can be smart to fix up your Coral Gables real estate a little bit. It is usually wise to begin any and all renovations outside. Do the lights on the porch need to be fixed or does the walkway out front need more mulch? Maybe you just need to clean the roof, as well as the driveway. Giving your home a new coat of paint can often be a wise decision.

Before a person begins to paint any home for sale in Coral Gables, he or she needs to inspect everything. Walk around outside with a notepad and a pencil, if not your iPad. That way, you can easily make note of mildew, mold, fading and peeling paint. You should also look for any cracks, dents, broken tiles, and other problems on your property that need a little attention. Look for rust on any iron railings too. That way, you will not forget anything too important. After all, you don’t want to repaint a part of your house before remembering that there’s a nasty water leak in the wall. These situations occur to homeowners every day and they can be extremely frustrating, as well as costly.

When inspecting your Coral Gables homes for sale, keep an eye out for weak caulk. It is just a matter of time until it deteriorates and disappears. Before you know it, your property will appear unattractive due to weird gaps. Heavy winds and rain will easily get inside your home. Your AC bill will shoot up as well, as the cool air will leak through the walls. No thanks.

When searching for mold, some folks have been using dogs to detect unwanted substances inside and out of the South Florida homes. It’s true, canines often supply thorough inspections that are accompanied by a report and a follow-up test. Using dogs to detect mold is not a new concept. They have been accurately pinpointing at least eighteen different types of mold behind walls, ceilings, and floors for decades. Infrared cameras are also fabulous as they detect the slightest amounts of moisture. Just imagine the result when you put one these special cameras on a dog.

If you do find mold on your house, you can always try to remove it yourself. It all depends on what type of mold it is. If need be, you can always call a professional to help you get rid of it all. If may cost a pretty penny, but a specialist should be able to terminate 100 percent of your mold.

Now is the time to walk around the outside of your Coral Gables luxury home and inspect every inch of its exterior. We all know that is can be a little too hot and humid to do so in the summer months. As soon as your initial inspection is complete, you can start mapping out how you plan to repaint the outside of your home.
