As October concludes and the winter season approaches, we all know what that means; the weather outside is about to turn frightful. For the majority of the country, that means plenty of snowfall and freezing temperatures. Fortunately, in beautiful California, we rarely have that problem. Our climate is one many envy; after all, it’s hard not to dream of a stunning California day when you are shoveling snow from your driveway for months on end.


But just because blizzards and wind chill advisories don’t often appear in a winter weather forecast for us, doesn’t mean we don’t have our share of Mother Nature’s hazards to be aware of. You know what that means; rain. The phrase “rain, rain, go away” feels like it should be another state motto here in California. The rain not only has the ability to impact our mood, but it can also have serious consequences on how our home looks and functions.


Fortunately, there are things that can be done before winter arrives to ensure that your home, more specifically, your home’s exterior, looks good throughout the winter season and long beyond. Here are a few ways to protect your home before the winter rain hits:


Caulking Gaps and Patching Stucco

According to PaintZen, Sealing and caulking windows will prevent moisture into your home and its foundation while also further insulating it. Through proper caulking, we’ll help you keep water and cold air out of your home.


Premium-Grade Acrylic Paint

Premium-Grade Acrylic Paint is a great way to protect your home’s exterior surface from the wet season on the horizon (on top of that, it will make those outdoor holiday decorations of yours really stand out!) By prepping extensively and by using two coats of 100% acrylic premium-grade paint, we ensure that your home and its appearance will withstand the upcoming winter and the damaging weather that it can bring with it. 


Protect your home before the winter rain begins. Rain can cause a variety of problems for your home, its paint, and its structure.
