Exterior home painting increases the value of your home, makes your home beautiful and most importantly, protects your home’s structure from natural elements.
Unfortunately, since the timeframe for repainting the exterior of your home will depend on what material was previously used during your home’s construction, the quality of the paint, and where your home is located (aka where you live), there is no one ideal time to repaint your home.
Typically, most experts will say that you should repaint your home every 5-10 years, but this too can vary.
Although everyone’s experience will be different, here are 3 signs that you should probably have your home’s exterior repainted.
Peeling and Flaking of Paint
Aside from making our homes look valuable and appealing, paint protects our homes – and all buildings in general – from the elements of mother nature.
Peeling paint means your home is exposed and that can quickly lead to moisture and bacteria. This will eventually cause your home’s material to rot, mold, and mildew. By occasionally adding new coats of paint, you can prevent further damage to your home.
Colorado Springs residents are lucky to have over 300 days of sun. However, those rays of sunshine can really take a toll on the paint of your home. Unlike peeling, fading is not a terrible issue, but it can leave your home looking duller than it really is.
See early warning signs, by checking the areas of your home that get sun the most often.
Selling or Seeking a new look
Are you selling your home or just looking for a new fresh look? Then, it’s the perfect time to repaint your home’s exterior!
We know the same old look can get boring or outdated and we can help you mix and match colors to those you already have or start completely fresh.
With so many types of paints available, your options are endless. You can decide to repaint with oil-based paint to project that shiny look, an undercoat paint for durability, or enamel paint to protect your home from intense heat or windy days.
Our experts at AB Painting in Colorado Springs can help you pick the best option for the exterior of your home.
Maintenance & Time
If years have passed and your house is showing no signs of your paint wearing down, that doesn’t mean you don’t need to do any maintenance. You can help prevent further damages by repainting your home in either a new color or the same color you’ve loved for years before any damage is noticed.
This preventative maintenance helps prevent long term wear on your walls or wooden merger and to prevent cracks, peels, and fading down the road.
