Exterior Work my Comments at Home Advisor

Because of comments I made at Home Advisor sharing my information I’m adding my writing about MULTIPLE COMMENTS on A HOME ADVISOR PAGE THAT were made by me. This is in case anyone comes to this site because I made those comments. Often I do not share information about home work, but I’ve done research, have done painting, and have tried to make sure I learn how to do work before taking the time to do it.

After learning how to do work I try to make sure the actions I tried live well over time. So the application of plastic siding instead of paint likely have multiple variables that impact the coverage beyond the materials used. Because of some knowledge gained with time & work in exterior paint jobs as well as ideas from the comments on that Liquid Siding- Worth a Look? Home Advisor page, I’m adding that information here for reference.

Planning to do outside work is generally a normal consideration for homeowners around this time of year, being spring. The options for outside work depend, but property care is a constant endeavor, so there are often tasks that are shifted and varied depending on materials considered and costs factored with these considerations. Many individuals that don’t consider the future, are so short term in what is considered that they fail to calculate future care costs and values when considering options for the present. Money is generally the main cost consideration, but time, energy, effort, care needs, work efforts, problem costs from lack of care impact all of these decisions.

When calculation the costs and values in products and materials for work and for projects there are many options and many considerations. For instance with the Liquid Siding, what is the material is as important as how is the material applied and who does the application. That’s why I shared my comments on Home Advisor, because the liquid vinyl ‘paint’ material seems wonderful versus normal paint being that if applied correctly the care over time is tremendously reduced.

Comments– on the Home Advisor page about Liquid Siding

Marie Harsh, July 3:

I had liquid siding put on my house 10 yrs ago. The cost was very fair. To this day it still looks as good as it did from day 1, I haven’t had to do any upkeep and the bugs don’t like it.

But what product did Marie use? &

What application process was used &

Who were the appliers?

At times many people do not read the instructions, at times people that read the instruction do not follow the instructions correctly either so they end up with product problems.

For materials like paints the applications vary with the form of the product, spray paint versus applicator paints have various pros & cons with different application procedures & needs. Some application considerations include temperatures & humidity levels with applications.

Often products mention temperatures to be above OR between AND

  • this may not mean atmospheric temperatures, but SURFACE TEMPERATURES, humidity levels to be under.
    • Painters working in the correct atmosphere may still need to work on different surface locations with those correct conditions because of various surfaces and the needs with those.
      • Like applying paint on the south in the middle of the day IS BAD,
        • when the sun was out all day in the evening after the sun sets while the times are dry can be better.
        • OR in the morning if the night was dry and the humidity level was correct.]

Professional painters organize application times and patterns based on various application needs and processes with the materials, the surfaces, and the time needs with that work. Anyone trying to cut the application times, with how they do the work and when they do it are likely to cause future problems AND reduce the lifespan of the work values because of their actions.

For the Liquid Vinyl Siding, because the material is ‘newer’ the application methods aren’t as widely broadcast OR experimented with as are methods and actions with painting. Because of that businesses selling or sharing those products should have taken the time to develop good use processes. Sandi suffered because this wasn’t done when she used the product, she blamed the wood surface, but I’m sure there were multiple factors impacting that application AND the results being suffered by her and her family.
