Quote:
Like other areas of the country, coastal homes present a unique set of challenges when it comes to painting them. When nearly all the homes you paint are on the ocean, adding years to an exterior paint job take some extra planning and effort. These homes take the brunt of intense salt spray blown by storms and the intense, unforgiving ultraviolet rays of the summer sun. 4 Tips for Painting Coastal Homes
Do you paint coastal home?

I paint the interiors of them. Biggest challenge is to keep from looking out the windows.

I don't live on the coast so I don't. I do go to FL on vacation sometimes and last 4th of July week on Anna Maria Island I watched the locals paint the house next door every morning. Looked to be just like any other job to me except for I did feel the need to pull our car into the garage as I was worried about over spray lol.

I paint ocean front houses often. Not much different than those not on the water.

The 4 tips in the article are quality products, good cleaning, good prep, and when to use primer... not really any tips worth reading, and not struggles that are specific to costal homes.

Some minor challenges we face are weather related. Waterfront house can be wetter in the mornings than houses not on the water. They also tend to not have much shade, as the point of waterfront house is the sun and water. So we tend to get slightly less productive hours per day.

We paint coastal homes on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. These are typically beach rental homes with absentee homeowners. No painting going on in the summer as the renters are on site. The wind blows like a gale even on a good day, fortunately most houses are surrounded by sand so spray mist is not a problem for the ground.


The paint job on many of these homes lasts half as long, at best, as homes that we do inland. Wind driven sand, sea air and the sun do a number on the paint film.


When the economy takes a dip the beach homes feel it the most as it is usually a second home for the owner and as such suffers due to budgetary constraints.

Not any more unless it's an epoxy job. I live on the seacoast.
