If you haven’t had the outside of your home renovated in a while, it might be time to refresh your paint. Whether you’re looking for a new color or to clean up the color that you already have, it’s never a bad idea to improve your home.
But why bother? What good is exterior painting anyway?
Believe it or not, it’s more important than you might think. Keep reading to learn all about the importance of exterior painting for your home.
Is this your forever home? If you’re not sure, or you’re already considering selling, you need to think about how buyers are going to respond to the appearance of your house.
Appearances are everything. There are things that you might not notice about the outside of your home that potential buyers will. You’re used to the dingy paint job, the chips, the way that the paint has changed color and faded in the areas that get the most sun.
You’re used to these things, so you’ve gone blind to them. Buyers won’t feel that way.
Not only will it make your house easier to sell, but you may also get more value out of the home once buyers have chosen you. What’s not to love?
Did you know that a new paint job can add a layer of protection to your home? This is why exterior painting is actually an important part of home maintenance.
When there are cracks in your paint, your home is open to all kinds of dangers like moisture, dust, and pests. With worn-down paint, your exterior walls are open to the elements like wind and bright sunlight.
While exterior paint may seem inconsequential, it actually adds a thin layer of protection against these things, prolonging the life of your home.
What’s your curb appeal like?
Curb appeal is what the home looks like from the sidewalk. It’s what you see when you drive up to park in your driveway, what your neighbors will see when they’re out on a walk, and what potential buyers see as a first impression.
Some homes that are part of an HOA need to maintain good curb appeal or else they face fines.
There are plenty of ways to improve your curb appeal, but many of them are expensive or time-consuming (or both). An exterior paint job, though, is comparatively affordable, and it lasts for a long time.
It adds an instant new look to your home.
Exterior painting makes a big change in a small amount of time. Whether you plan on staying in your home or you’re looking to sell, you’ll love the look of your freshly-painted house.
