Why Should You Paint the Exterior of your Home?
Well, there are many reasons to paint the exterior of your home. Your home is probably your largest asset so it pays to look after it. Painting the exterior of your home can increase durability, aesthetics and the value of your home. It can be one of the best value for money investments you can make to your home. Keep reading! We detail some of these benefits and more, below:
1. Aesthetic appeal
First impressions count. An exterior paint job can create a great first impression an old, deteriorating paint job can do the opposite! Old paint fades, peels and goes out of date. Yes, paint colours do go through trends and can date a house or apartment building. That is one of the reasons that Painting Pros provides a colour consultant to help you choose the colours that work best for you. In addition, the sun’s ultraviolet rays cause the chemical compounds in paint to degrade (particularly if you use an oil-based paint), which means it will lose its colour and lustre. In particular, dark paints will appear to lose fade more quickly than lighter colours. Sydney’s harsh sun can cause a number of issues with paint including blistering and chalking (when the paint becomes powdery). A good initial paint job, regular maintenance and upkeep can prevent these issues.
2. Value of a property
A fresh coat of paint can increase the value of a property. Don’t just listen to us, listen to domain.com. They have written an article titled Five inexpensive tips for increasing your home’s value, where they state:
“One of the simplest, most cost-effective improvements of all is paint! Freshly painted rooms look clean and updated – and that spells value.”
3. Protection against weather
The elements can play havoc on your home. Sun, rain, wind, insects, mould and mildew are just some of the elements that can degrade the paint of your home. The right paint can prevent much of this damage.
4. Prevents termite damage
Painting and staining seals off exposed areas that are prone to damage from termites and other wood-eating pests. Painting your home can be one of the cheapest and most effective renovations you can do to your home to improve its looks and value. However, it’s not a simple as it sounds. Painting can be pretty technical. The right painter knows the right paint to use on each surface for its purpose. Choose the wrong paint and you might as well throw your money down the drain. Choose the right paint and the right painter to do a professional job and you improve the value and the longevity of your home.
