It’s easy to love the beautiful seasons and climate here in Colorado!

There’s a lot of diversity and that’s a huge benefit. But it does put an above-average level of strain on your property’s exterior surfaces, coatings, and materials. Quality paint and stain are your first line of defense while making routine inspections and maintenance is essential both for long-term cost-savings as well as the visual appeal of your property.

As a Colorado commercial painter, we see firsthand just how crucial this proactive care really is.

Today, let’s take a look at a few exterior maintenance items that need to be on your radar as a property owner or manager.

Essential Fall and Winter Maintenance for Your Colorado Property

 Exterior Painting and Maintenance Tips: Is Your Property Protected?

#1: Seasonal Inspections

As we step into the winter season, this is an ideal time for a thorough inspection. With the help of a commercial painting professional, take a closer look at the condition of your paint and stain. Remember, if you can catch weakening, aging paint early, you’ll save a lot of money. Waiting until there’s a glaring problem or total paint failure can drastically increase the cost of remediation.

#2: Wood Rot Repairs

Rot makes a subtle appearance at first, softening wood around at-risk surfaces: window sills, trim, soffit/fascia boards, decks, lower sections of siding, etc. It’s all too easy to ignore, but the longer you wait the more that wood-devouring fungus spreads. This requires more wood repair, replacement, and ultimately more expense. To protect your budget, add routine wood rot inspections to your maintenance checklist in the fall and spring.

#3: Maintenance Painting

As we touched on above, routine painting is the most cost-effective approach. Hands-down.

Creating a maintenance partnership with a commercial painting company is a fantastic way to hand over this crucial task, ensuring attractive, healthy surfaces year round. And of course, the convenience of knowing that your property is being well cared for on a predictable schedule.

#4: Stucco Cracks

Hairline cracks are common (and unavoidable) in stucco siding, but they need to be monitored closely. During the fall season water can find its way into those cracks, then expand as it freezes during the wintertime temperature drop. This expansion widens the cracks, opening the door to more material damage and water intrusion. It’s important to catch these cracks early and repair the gap in your property’s exterior armor, so to speak (learn more about stucco repair here).

Also, it’s important to keep in mind that what may look like a tiny, harmless crack always runs deeper than you think. Stucco is deceptive!

I think that the best part of the project was Jason Moore who was the project manager. He was always in communication and completely handled the whole project. He was extremely professional and we enjoyed working with him.
CHRISTINA B.
HOA COMMUNITY MANAGER
The Board and I were very satisfied with the initial presentation provided when bidding on the work. We were also satisfied with the overall work completed. Jason (Project Manager) was wonderful to work with and handled all requests and questions professionally and promptly.
Thomas Richard Cruz
Facilities Manager
It is my great pleasure to provide this letter of recommendation for Shaker Painting Inc. Shaker Painting recently completed a full exterior trim replacement and paint of our five-story building, Broadway Junction, at 1165 Broadway, Denver CO. The Shaker team conducted themselves with professionalism and performed in a manner that was the least disruptive to all parties affected by the work. Closing-off parking spaces, managing staging area(s) for materials and the overall safety for pedestrians were some of the challenges presented to Shaker. Not a single complaint was issued for the duration of the work. Communication was excellent as Shaker personnel were required to access the roof and maintain the security setup at the building. As we have worked with Shaker on previous projects, we will continue to work with Brent Rumpf, Ed Gonzales, Jason Moore, and the rest of the Shaker team on future projects and I would recommend the same to any property and/or property management organization.

Everything. From Jason's first bid to the final coat of paint with [the project manager’s] crew, we were very pleased with the communication, the attention to detail and the care with which they protected the house, minimized the sanding dust and cleaned up after the fact carefully. The worry that we would have a major cleaning effort after the fact. We were able to clean and put back all the furniture, pictures and furnishings in less than a day.

From the RFP to the initial walk through – from the proposal acceptance to the planning session – from the first day of work through the final day – every person at Shaker was professional, thoughtful, friendly and helpful. The project was completed well within the anticipated time frame and at a very reasonable cost. During the quality control walkthrough at the end of the project no deficiencies were noted. Every member of the community had only praise for the excellent job Shaker did. It was the best painting project I have ever been involved in as a Community Association Manager.
