Exterior paint can certainly make your home more beautiful. Though important, providing your home with brilliant curb appeal actually isn’t the primary function of exterior paint. So, while you’re enjoying color coordinating your upcoming home exterior painting project, read on to learn of the benefits beyond beauty.
Benefits Beyond Beauty
Your home’s exterior is bombarded by natural elements and manufactured pollutants, such as petroleum products. That’s a lot to endure for such a thin skin, so to speak, considering that paint isn’t much thicker than a sheet of paper.
Therefore, it’s essential to choose a high-quality paint that can do the job for many years. You’ll save money in the long run, and even each month, with greater energy savings with select exterior paint formulas. Beyond the exterior beauty paint gives your home, you may also enjoy these benefits:
- Quality paint is less likely to peel and fade due to UV rays, hot and cold temperatures, wind and rain.
- Exterior paint protects wood and other home cladding from moisture, mold and mildew.
- Select exterior paints reduce heat gain from the sun.
Repairs and Preventive Maintenance
Your home painting professional does a lot of work to get your exterior walls ready to paint. Part of the preparation process involves inspecting your home’s cladding for wear, damage and mold. It’s important to take care of any revealed problems in wood or other cladding, as the problem will only get worse. It’s generally more expensive to replace materials than to repair.
Another benefit to home exterior painting is the opportunity to make your home more energy efficient. Sealing cracks and gaps in your home’s exterior reduces heat gain/loss and moisture infiltration, which prolongs the service life of your home’s shell and the new paint.
Increase Home Value
Exterior painting is a cost-effective project to increase home value. If you are selling your home, painting it could prove to be a great return on your investment. Even if you aren’t selling your home, the protection that new exterior paint affords to your home’s building materials will give you peace of mind.
