Your home’s exterior is important because it is the first thing you and passersby see. Not only is exterior paint a great way to show off your design scheme, but there are also even more practical reasons to paint your home’s exterior. Here are three reasons painting your home’s exterior is a great idea.
Protect Your Home
If your home is made of wood, it’s especially susceptible to rotting and weathering. This means you’ll have to take some steps to protect it. Painting your home’s exterior creates a barrier between your home and the elements, which is especially useful if your home is made of wood. If this barrier isn’t present or has been damaged, then moisture can seep into your home and cause rotting issues that can require expensive repairs. Also, when you paint your home seal it, which protects it from termites. Termites can be just as devastating to your home as weathering issues, so make sure to take this step to avoid them.
Maintain Your Stucco
Your home’s stucco is used to coat your walls and siding, so it’s essential to keep it in good condition. Stucco is covered up by paint, so if there isn’t any or the paint’s degraded then it’ll probably end up in bad condition. If your stucco comes into contact with too much unnecessary moisture, then you can experience issues with mold and mildew. Mold and mildew can cause health issues for you and your family, so they should be avoided at all costs.
Increase Your Home Value
Not only will painting your home protect it from the elements, but it can help boost your home’s value as well! If the paint that’s currently on your home’s exterior is fading or chipped, your home’s value can decrease. Even if it’s structurally sound, people will view a home like this as being less visually appealing. Adding a fresh coat of paint is relatively inexpensive and can tremendously boost your home’s value! Fortunately, a well-done paint job will last for years to come.
