Everyone has their own preference for house architecture styles. Some like their houses built with wood and/or concrete, but there are those who like brick houses for a variety of reasons. Painting over brick, however, is another matter, but can produce wonderful results when done properly, Kelly Roberson wrote for Better Homes and Gardens. The mysticism and wonder of brick houses may not be that far off from the minds of residents in Suwanee, Georgia. A casual check of the property listings right in the city reveal many hits on three-side brick homes, with a considerable number being two-story structures. You can even remember the tale of the Three Little Pigs and how the Third Pig’s sturdy brick house ended the Big Bad Wolf’s huff and puff aggression. When you want your house to be in colors that make it a pleasure to look at, professionals who provide residential painting services like Proactive Residential are ready to apply the coats.

Aside from ruining its structural makeup, the most frustrating thing water damage can do to a home would be the unsightly bulges, blisters, and cracks damaging the once blemish-free drywall. Hideous molds setting up shop are a bonus. The culprit comes in many faces, too: ice dam, plumbing leaks, and holed roofs, as well as drips penetrating the walling over time, resulting to stains, which can’t be concealed by regular Suwanee house painting. Sheetrock is another term for drywall because it’s made of compressed gypsum, wrapped only with a thick paper facing. Since gypsum is a very soft rock, the drywall becomes spongy as it absorbs wetness over time. Eventually, water pooling within the gypsum will make itself known by seeping under and manifesting on the painted paper face. Dry walls in damp areas such as the bathrooms are more prone to moisture damage than areas exposed to open air.
