Paint Your House for a Brand New Look and Better Curb Appeal

Tips from Your Professional Painters in Philadelphia

Who doesn’t enjoy that feeling of pride in possessing a beautiful home, with stately doors, a landscaped yard and a well maintained fence? When it comes to renovations, most homeowners tend to focus their attention and resources on the interior aspects such as the paint, décor and finishes. However, it is actually quite easy to give your property’s exterior a complete makeover. In fact, painting your home’s exteriors is one of the most budget-friendly and practical ways to increase the value, curb appeal and life of your property. Here’s a quick look at the advantages of painting your house.

Why Painting Your Home Exteriors Matters

Painting your house has numerous benefits; while some may be tangible and more immediate in nature, certain other advantages will accumulate over time, more as a potential cost saving: 

  • Immediate Benefits:
    • Exterior house painting immediately increases the value of your property. If you were to list your property for sale, you can expect over 100% returns on the expenses you incurred for this job. For example, if you spend $1,000 on the paint job, it will increase the value of your house to $1,400, so you earn $400 and the job pays for itself.
    • The brand-new look of your home will improve the curb appeal of your property. With the use of the right colors and materials, you can make your house extremely attractive for potential buyers and generate sufficient interest to get them through the front door. That gives your property a better chance of attracting multiple offers and spending minimal time on the market.
  • Long Term Benefits:
    • Over the years, your home’s exteriors are exposed to harsh seasonal elements such as rain, wind, snow, and sleet. A fresh coat of paint adds a protective moisture-resistant shield and saves you the high costs associated with the removal of mold and mildew that may form in the long run. The right quality of paint will help maintain structural integrity and increase the lifespan of your property.
    • Before adding a fresh coat of paint, most contractors will evaluate the state of the siding and proactively identify any termite damage or seasonal wear and tear. In addition to specific treatment, exterior paint itself helps arrest the issue of any insect infestation. This can potentially save you thousands of dollars that you would otherwise end up spending if the problem goes unnoticed or spreads to a larger section of the property. Exterior paint contractors will also repair or replace the damaged siding at a fraction of the cost while they do your paint job.

Ideally, exterior house painting should be done every 7 to 12 years.
