Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I paint my house?
Your house should be painted every 4 to 6 years. If you wait longer than that you will have to do more preparation and it could cost up to 3 times as much. Each time you paint it adds another layer of protection to prevent future damage such as dry rot or peeling paint.
I’ve been told my house has dry rot. How do you get rid of it?
Dry rot, which is common in Texas and other rainy places, is due to the absorption of water into wood siding, trim, or structure. The wood softens and its cellulose breaks down. The affected area loses its structural integrity. You can recognize dry rot in your house if you see holes or wavy or buckling wood in trim work, beams, porches, roof edges, and any other area made of wood.
You get rid of dry rot by replacing the damaged area with new materials. People often ask me to estimate how much this would cost, but it’s difficult because you can’t see the hidden dry rot. There will on average about 1.5 to 4 times more dry rot than you can see on the surface. Contractors need to inform their clients about this upfront in order to avoid problems. Be sure to talk at length with the contractors to be sure that you will relate well.
What are easy things I can do to make my house more energy efficient?
Every time a light bulb goes out, replace it with a compact fluorescent light bulb. Open shades for natural light. Keep electrical devices off when not in use. My family and I wear sweaters in the house when it is cold and try to keep the heat no higher than 68 degrees. It is quite comfortable.
