Is It Time For An Exterior Repaint?

The exterior of your home speaks volumes about who you are and how you care for your home. Unfortunately, it can be easy to “forget” about your exterior as the years pass by. Eventually, you’ll pull into your driveway, take a look at your exterior and realize it may be in need of an update.

You’ll know it’s time for an exterior repaint when one or more of the following happens to your exterior:

  • You’re Selling: We love to paint exteriors of homes that are going on the market because we know for however much the homeowner is paying us, they’re going to get 2x, or 3x times that back in the increase in the value of their home.
  • Damaged Exterior: Overtime, stucco, wood, or vinyl siding can become damaged from the sun, rain, and other elements. The truth is that no surface will last forever. After you replace your siding, you’ll want to add a fresh coat of paint on top.
  • Bubbling, Cracking, Or Peeling Paint: This is another sign that your exterior has succumbed to the elements. When your paint starts to peel, it will expose the siding material leading to possible mold, decay, or other damage. Paint can actually provide a protective layer to your siding, but not when it’s peeling.
  • Fading Colors: Fading paint is a common issue in stucco, especially thanks to the San Diego sun. The color will lose the shine it once had and parts of your home will look discolored.
  • You Don’t Like It: Sometimes, there’s nothing wrong with your exterior except you don’t like it. If the colors our drab or outdated, there’s no reason you should come home to see them every day. Instead, repaint your exterior and come home to a house that rejuvenates your senses every time you look at it.

Painting Exterior Stucco

Stucco exterior is popular in San Diego. I’ve overseen hundreds of stucco jobs all across the San Diego area and I see even more while I drive around town from job to job. One of the biggest differentiators between JCE Painting and other contractors is the attention we pay to properly caulk everywhere where stucco meets wood. Caulking between stucco and any trim is how we prevent moisture from getting into the two building materials. When moisture gets in, we’re more likely to see mold and rot, two things we don’t want.

Our special stucco patching process starts with mixing four substances (primer, mortar, caulking, and bonding agents) to make a “solid steel” exterior. Our special solution can fill in 2 x 2 ft. holes that hold up amazingly and never crack. We’ll even go as far as to say that it will outlive the house!

We spend a lot of time repairing poor stucco work done by less experienced painting contractors. A tell-tall sign of shotty stucco work is by running your hands over the stucco and seeing if it crumbles to the ground. This means you have weak and cracking stucco which will allow water to leak through the failing areas. Water will seep in and expand as it freezes and heats up causing big holes to appear in your house.

Do you have this in your exterior? Then you need to give us a call ASAP

Poorly done stucco is almost guaranteed to fail within the year and cost you a fortune over the long run due to yearly repairs.

Wood Replacement

Most houses we work with will have termite and water damage to the wood siding and fascia boards. Before you can paint your exterior, you’ll have to replace the damaged wood. You’ll be inclined to hire a siding company to fix the damaged wood, but this is expensive when you can hire JCE Painting to replace the damaged wood AND do your exterior repaint.



Best Practices For Exterior Painting

We have systematic procedures for making sure the job is completed quickly and efficiently. This process includes pressure washing, eliminating debris, masking, taping, scraping, patching, painting, and a final cleanup of the area.


Primer is never not important, but it’s even more necessary in places like San Diego, Pacific Beach, etc. We do not skimp on our choice of primer, we use Dunn Edwards top of the line primers.  We prime all surfaces that have been repaired, patched, sanded and scraped any surfaces that are raw wood, raw stucco any failing cracked out wood and for prime RX peal bonding primer. Is an amazing tool for filing gaps on old weathered fascia making it look uniform and solid looking again as well.


There are more factors to consider when caulking other than just curb appeal.  With moisture in the air it will seep into the cracks and behind the paint and cause failure.  So you want to caulk up all open surfaces exposed to moisture.


If you live by the beach you know the wind picks up around midday.  Your masking needs to be tight and solid and we use blue tape to ensure the tape will not leave residue on your surfaces that you’re covering.


Spraying can be tricky by the beach. Sometimes you have a small window to spray before the wind picks up you have to be aware of your surroundings, vehicles, plants, concert, other homes, people walking by. We ensure that all surrounding surfaces and objects are fully protected and covered from any over-spray.

Brush And Roll

Sometimes in certain situations it is more cost effective to brush and roll depending on wind conditions and different surface types.

Justin clearly takes great pride in his work. He is meticulous and and takes his time preparing and painting the house. I really appreciated his kind, friendly attitude. Justin checked in with us daily to give us an update on his progress. The quality of Justin's work shows his many years of experience and talent with his craft. Thank you for making our house look brand new Justin!
David L.
Second time using Justin and he truly loves what he does, you can tell by the details he puts in when he paints. He’s super detailed, clean, friendly, fast and has an amazing eye for color. He helped us picked out the color for our new home, suggested what should be painted the body color and what should be white to make everything really pop. The end result is beyond amazing and I could not be any happier.
I would highly recommend JCE Painting!!! Jason painted the exterior of my home + patio cover. He does amazing work! He was on the job every day by 7/7:30 and stayed late into the afternoon. He takes a lot of pride in his work and it shows. At the end of the job, he told me to walk around and put tape on anything that need a touch up - there was almost nothing to tag because he is so meticulous as he goes along. He's also just a really nice guy - Thanks JCE!

Justin did a fabulous job painting the exterior of our 30 year old. It looks new, even the garage door. Loads of compliments from our neighbors. It's clear he takes great pride in his work. He uses only the best materials, offers great color advise, and works quickly and cleanly. I can't wait until we have him back to paint the interior.
