Is your home’s appearance looking a little bit old and tired? Are you trying to increase your home’s curb appeal before you try to sell? Whatever your goal, there are many reasons why you should invest in exterior painting. Here are just a few:
- Siding/Trim Maintenance — Regular exterior painting is one of the best things you can do to maintain the exterior siding, trim and accents on your home. Not only can exterior painting give your home a fresh, new look, but it can also reduce the amount of maintenance and repairs you need to do on your siding and trim.
- Enhance curb appeal — A fresh coat of paint can make a great impression on buyers when they pull up to your house for a showing. Even if you don’t want to sell, giving your home a new coat of paint can boost the charm of your neighborhood.
- Prevent termite damage — Termites are every homeowner’s worst nightmare. Regular exterior painting seals off exposed areas that are prone to damage from termites and other wood-eating pests.
- Extend structural integrity — If you’re not careful, mold and mildew can break down the structural integrity of your house’s wood surfaces. Exterior painting requires that your home’s outside is thoroughly cleaned before the new paint is applied, so this process eliminates mold and mildew before it can take over.
