Thinking about not painting your home this year? Maybe you should reconsider.
If you’re considering painting the interior and/or exterior of your home this New Year, you know that making the decision can be difficult. It can take a lot of time for a homeowner to gather estimates, choose the best contractor for them, consider color choices and the inconvenience of having people in your home, plus the financial commitment.
Not painting your home can increase your need for home repairs.
But have you considered the costs that could arise by not painting this season? Painting your home is not just for aesthetic purposes. The exterior of your home can endure weather related damage. Today’s high quality paints and coatings can protect your surfaces from penetrating moisture, mold and mildew, stains, dirt, and fading.
Visible mold, peeling and cracking, bubbling/blistering paint indicate a problem such as: water penetration, incorrect past product usage, inadequate cleaning before application, and more. Simply covering these problems with another coat of paint will not correct these issues. Professional painters are familiar with the many causes of paint failures and know how to correct them. Proper prep of your surfaces is the key component in reducing and eliminating future problems.
Whether you are planning to sell your home this year or not, painting will increase curb appeal and property value, while protecting your investment from damages that can occur.
Paint not only protects, but does create a positive atmosphere making your home more inviting and attractive for both you and your guests. An experienced painting professional will be able to advice you on colors that will complement interior furnishings and décor, and painting techniques you might enjoy to highlight your favorite areas.
Overcoming cost concerns.
As you can see, the decision to paint your home this season might just protect your wallet from unexpected damages that could result in thousands of dollars of repair. The end result of beautifully painted walls and proper surface treatments and repairs will outweigh the expense of painting your home. Choosing a qualified, experienced, professional painting contractor will save you not only time, but will ensure peace of mind that your most valued asset, your home, is properly maintained.
