Painting provides certain perks to your home. It looks better in the eyes of your peers and also has functional advantages. Some of these benefits can be seen instantly while others serve you well in the long run. If you want to improve the quality of your home, exterior painting is a great way to get started.
More Aesthetically Pleasing
Perhaps your tastes were different when you first moved into your home. Maybe you don’t like the color of the house. It’s even possible that you’ve had the same colored house for a long time, and you just want to give it a fresh new look. Don’t underestimate what exterior painting can do for the look of your home. Remember, you’ll be looking at your home every day, so being able to see something pleasing is a simple yet delightful treat. Your house will look like new again, letting you view your home in a whole new light.
Higher Home Value
A\recent exterior painting of the house can do wonders for what your home can net you on the market. There are some other home renovations that you can make, but they don’t offer the return that exterior painting does. Something like a kitchen remodeling, on average, will give you an 80 percent return on your investment. The average return on exterior painting for your home is a jaw-dropping 141 percent. This means that if you choose to have your house repainted, you will be able to not only break even on your investment but actually profit from it.
More Protection Against The Elements
After a while, the elements can take a toll on your home’s exterior. Rain, snow, fire, and more can do considerable damage. If the outside of your house is painted, your home will be more shielded against the forces of nature.
Paint is great for protecting against moisture that can seep into your home, as well as reducing the chances of finding mold. It also protects against precipitation and can even keep insects at bay.
Longer Lifespan For Siding
Regardless of what siding you have, exterior painting does wonders to keep your siding going strong. There are siding options like wood or vinyl that need to be replaced periodically to protect your home. A coat of paint alone can keep your siding around for a few more years which saves you hundreds or thousands of dollars down the road.
Exterior painting is also great for covering up damage your siding has sustained or perhaps acting as a temporary repair tool. For example, you could cover up blemishes or offer more protection to spots that have become worn down over time.
