Make your home’s exterior at painting priority, too

Homeowners rightly spend a lot of valuable time making suretheir home’s interior is attractive, livable, and fresh. And nothingaccomplishes those objectives more than the color of the walls and furnishings.It’s also just as valuable – and maybe even more so – to make exterior paintinga priority, too.

Some of the advantages of top-quality, long-lasting exteriorpainting are easy to see. Literally. Improving your home’s curb appeal is anideal way to match the interior color choices and even personal style that youlive with every day. Curb appeal is also essential when it comes to your home’svalue, whether for the aesthetic appeal or making sure it is in prime conditionfor the real estate market.

Here are five of the main reasons to put exterior paintingon a to-do-soon list.

1.     As your home and household“grows,” so does the landscape. Your home has unique strengths and focus points thatlook best with specific colors. Ai Painting Plus offers color consultations tohelp homeowners make sure they are maximizing those focus points. (Rememberthat neutral colors, such as grays, whites, tans, or browns are typically safechoices, as long as the exterior still looks fresh.) Also, don’t be afraid ofusing bold accents on the front door or trim to add a distinct look.

2.     You’re adding a layer ofprotection. A fresh paint job does more than look good. Quality exteriorpaint and the right painting services work as an added layer of protection fromthe elements, helping to keep your home safe from weather damage, insects, anddust. The paint can even prevent exterior wood from rotting.

3.     You have some exterior damagethat is not easily seen. In addition to preventing problems, a quality coat ofpaint will help you identify larger issues to your home’s exterior that youmight not have already noticed. Once these bruises are identified, they are notdifficult to repair. Working to repaint your home can reveal an array of smallflaws ranging from mold, mildew, and water stains to rotting wood caused byweakened paint.

4.    Enhance neighborhoodaesthetics. A well-maintainedand freshly painted home can have a positive impact on the overall aestheticsof your neighborhood. When one homeowner invests in improving their property’sappearance, it often inspires others to follow suit, creating a ripple effect thatelevates the look and feel of the entire area. As a result, this can lead toincreased property values and a stronger sense of community pride.

5.     Increase energy efficiency. A fresh coat of paint cancontribute to your home’s energy efficiency, especially when you choose lightor reflective colors. Light-colored exterior paint reflects more sunlight,which can help keep your home cooler duringthe hot summer months. This, in turn,reduces the strain on your air conditioning system, resulting in lower energyconsumption and utility bills.

To summarize, the primary reasons to paint your home’s exteriorare to boost curb appeal; protect your home from the elements; prevent problemslike mold and mildew growth; improve the structural integrity by finding issuesthat might already exist; increase the property value; and extend the lifespanof your siding. (It’s also about matching your personal flair.)
