COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT

COMMUNITY PRESERVATION CASE STUDY

Community Preservation Inspectors have received complaints about several properties with chipping and peeling paint. Inspectors contacted the property owners and explained that inadequate weather protection can lead to water intrusion, wood rot, and mold; attract insects; and result in structural damage.

The property owners were either issued a verbal warning or given a courtesy notice request to repaint the exterior surface that had chipping and peeling paint.

Here are a few tips about painting your house that can help prevent paint from peeling and keep your paint looking fresh for longer:

1. Remove loose paint.

2. Prepare the surface correctly.

3. Paint at the appropriate temperature.

4. Apply multiple coats.

5. Use a high-quality paint; it lasts longer.

6. Wash the dust off your house annually to minimize the breakdown of your house’s paint.
