Have you been wondering whether having your home’s exterior painted is worth the investment? We can assure you it is and there are three important reasons why. Read on, to find out!
Increase home value
Money talks! That’s why the top reason to invest in exterior painting is the increase in home value it provides. Whether you have a heritage home that could use some restoration, or you’re looking to boost your contemporary curb appeal, painting the exterior of your home offers a quick return on investment.
If you’re selling your house you need to get potential buyers in the door! That’s why a fresh exterior provides that vital great first impression and inspires interest in the property. A new coat of paint removes the marks and scuffs from your time there, getting it ready for the world to see and allowing buyers to imagine it as theirs. A house with a freshly-painted exterior immediately gives the impression it is a well-maintained property and turns each buyer’s drive-by into a walk-through.
Protect & maintain your home
Your home is your biggest asset, so it makes sense to keep it in the best condition possible. Exterior painting can protect your home from the elements so it is not only beautiful, but safe to live in. The preparation involved in repainting a home is a great time to identify any issues such as deteriorated timber and spreading damp, giving you the chance to repair anything before it becomes a costlier concern.
Depending on the age of the house and the weather it has experienced, it may be showing some signs of weather-induced damage. For example, heat can cause cracked paintwork, while the wet can cause mould issues and water stains. A professional paint job with good quality exterior paint can help to protect your home from the elements.
Provide a facelift without the expense of a complete remodel
Feel like your home is looking dated compared to your neighbours? With a new paint job in a contemporary palette you’ll have a renewed appreciation for your home in no time. The best thing is the large impact an exterior repaint has on your home. If you’re looking for a significant way to update it without having a complex renovation, an exterior repaint could be for you.
But your home doesn’t have to be in bad condition to repaint it. Perhaps you just don’t dig that shade of orange that you loved so much a few years ago!
