1 – Repair is Needed
Most homeowners are not aware of the many small things which are going wrong on their home’s exterior until they paint it. The prep work that goes into an exterior paint job usually reveals the many areas in need of repair. If the exterior paint on your home is close to the end of its life expectancy, you are taking chances by postponing the new paint job. It doesn’t take long for exposed wood to begin rotting. There are other issues you can discover, as well. It’s usually much more expensive to replace things than to repair them; so you don’t want to wait too long.
2 – Improve Your Home’s Curb Appeal
If you are sprucing up your home in order to increase curb appeal for potential buyers, the most effective action you can take is to paint your home’s exterior. Everything that goes along with painting the outside of your home equates to ending up with the very best look you can put out there.
People who are looking to buy a new home often decide whether or not they want to look inside a home based on what the outside looks like. It’s only logical to assume that if the house has peeling paint, a dingy looking paint job, and missing trim, the interior is not worth viewing; that’s why some potential buyers will just drive by instead of going in.
There are many things you can do to improve your home’s curb appeal but none is typically as effective as an exterior paint job, especially if you choose colors with the most appeal. One study revealed that the most popular colors for homes are neutrals such as gray, white, tan, blue, and brown; bold shades such as reds and blues are welcome, as long as they are used as accents, such as on the front door or window shutters.
3 – Increase the Value of your Home
The best investments are those in which you invest a lot less than what you get back. Painting your home is one of those kinds of investments. The increase in your home’s value is typically much greater the cost of getting it painted by a professional.
