The exterior of your home is continuously exposed to the weather, so it’s inevitable that its finishes will start to show the effects of age and wear over time. Faded, cracked or peeling paint on the cladding and trim can detract from your home’s appearance, though, and make the entire property look neglected. A quality exterior paint job can restore and elevate your home’s curb appeal, and it offers some other less obvious but worthwhile benefits like:
There are lots of big-budget improvements you can tackle around your home’s exterior, like installing new siding, redesigning the landscaping, replacing the roof or upgrading the windows. In comparison, the instant appeal a new paint job provides compared to its reasonable cost gives you a higher return-on-investment than most other home improvement projects.
Increased Home Value
If you’re planning to put your home on the market, freshening up the exterior with a high-quality paint job can make the property immediately more attractive and valuable to potential buyers. According to a 2017 paint color analysis study by leading real estate marketplace Zillow, the color of your exterior can directly affect its sale price, so you’ll want to research the latest color trends to add the greatest possible value and help your home sell faster.
Protection from Damage
A paint job does much more than make your home look pretty; it provides all the exterior surfaces with a layer of vital protection against the elements. To maximize the protective benefits of repainting your home, it’s wise to hire professional Atlanta painters who have the right tools and techniques to properly prepare the surfaces, and can give you expert advice about selecting the right paint and how to solve problems like blistering or mold/mildew growth.
Greater Pride and Enjoyment
Here in Atlanta, home ownership should be an opportunity to relax and entertain on your porch, deck or patio or tend to other beautifying elements like your gardens and landscaping. While it’s fairly easy to put chipped and peeling exterior paint out of your mind this time of year when you’re spending more time indoors, you’ll find outdoor living more enjoyable throughout the coming spring, summer and fall if your home’s exterior has a new coat of paint in an eye-pleasing color palette.
