Atlas Coatings & Construction Exterior Home Painting Wood Rot Repair Examination Olathe, Overland Park, Leawood, Stilwell, Stanley, Lenexa, Mission, Shawnee
    Catch the problems as they surface.  Don't let the small issues around your home or office become serious problems.  Make a list of the different "issues" your building's exterior has.  BTW don't worry.. EVERY home has an issue here or there.  Mother Nature is the it's harshest enemy, and she shows no mercy to your home or office's exterior.  It is good to check your the exterior for damage once a month and after extreme storms.

    Here are some simple things to look for while doing a routine examination of your home's exterior:



  1. Check for loose or peeling paint.
  2. Make sure the wood trim and siding are intact.  (No wood rot, swelling, or cracking)
  3. Loose siding.
  4. Nails "popping" out of the trim and siding,
  5. Caulking is intact. (nail holes filed, seams in the exterior caulked)
  6. Knots in wood loosing paint and swelling or cracking.

    Any time you see something that should not be, write it down.  It may be as little as:
  • Past paint job has a "missed" or "holiday" spot.
  • Rust from nail heads visible.
  • Scuffs from the riding lawnmower on the foundation.
    With your attention to detail, these small issues won't turn into costly repairs that could spell REAL $$$$$ trouble in the future!
