Five Reasons to Paint Your Home This Summer

Is it time to make a change? Early summer is a great time to update your home with new exterior paint. Here’s five reasons why Prep-Rite Painting recommends giving your home a color makeover.

Your Home Needs Repair

After a long North Carolina winter, your home’s exterior may be stressed or damaged. Winter conditions like snow and ice have a negative impact on your paint. Prepping a home for painting typically exposes damage your home may have incurred and allows you to repair those damages before they progress into larger issues. This is especially important to remember if your home’s exterior paint is close to the end of its life expectancy. Repair is usually a cheaper option than replacing, so take care of problems before it’s too late!

Improve Curb Appeal

Considering selling your home? One of the most effective ways to instantly improve curb appeal is to paint the exterior. Home buyers are more likely to be interested in seeing the interior of a house if the exterior is appealing. If your house has old and worn paint, you may be turning off potential buyers!

Even if you’re not selling your home, an exterior paint job can revive the look of your home. What’s more, a new paint job just might inspire you to complete more outdoor home improvement projects, leaving you with a beautiful house and yard to be proud of!

Increase Value

Your home is an investment – probably one of the largest you’ll ever make! Why not invest back into it? Exterior painting is a long term investment that’s worth it because it can increase the value of your home.  

Save Energy

Several studies have confirmed that painting your home’s exterior a brighter color helps reflect the rays of the sun and keep your home cooler in the summer. Darker colors absorb energy and heat. Lighter colors may also last longer than dark colors because of the reflection of the sun, reducing chipping and extending the lifetime of your paint job.

Consider the Weather

Temperature is key when painting outdoors. Early summer in North Carolina isn’t incredibly brutal, so the timing is perfect! Check with our local team of experts about the best time to paint your home.
