Reasons To Paint Your Home’s Exterior This Spring

Spring is here, and there’s no better time to revamp your home’s exterior! The exterior of your home is what gives it character. Its structural style on the outside may even be the reason you fell in love with it in the first place.

Here are some of the top reasons to paint your home’s exterior:

Make your house stand out in your neighborhood.

We all want our home’s exterior to be the talk of the town. The best way to catch neighboring eyes is to keep the outside looking fresh. A quality exterior paint job is the most important part to boost your curb appeal. Consider your home’s overall aesthetic, and choose a color that fits nicely with the landscaping of the property. Neutral colors, such as grays, whites, tans, or browns, are typically a safe bet. However, do not be afraid to choose bold accents on the front door or trim to add a unique look to your home.

Increase resell value.

If you are thinking about listing your home, you may want to consider painting it first. Studies have shown that exterior and interior painting are projects that can yield a significant ROI when it comes time to sell.

Protect it from seasonal elements.

A fresh paint job does way more for your home’s exterior than just look great. Quality exterior paint can act as an added layer of protection from seasonal elements. This helps keep your home safe from weather damage, pollen, pests, and dust. The paint can even prevent exterior wood from rotting.

Identify and repair damage.

Your home is probably one of your biggest investments, so it is important to ensure that its value doesn’t diminish over time. An exterior painting project will help you identify larger issues outside your home that you may not have already noticed. Common issues range from mold, mildew, and water stains to rotting wood caused by weakened paint. The good news is that once these issues are found and corrected, a solid, new paint job can prevent these damages from reappearing.

We typically recommend painting exteriors every 5 to 10 years, depending on the quality of paint and craftsmanship it was painted with last time.
