So how do you know when it is time to repaint your house? 

Taking care of your home and maintaining it is one of the most important things you can do to keep its value up. Don’t wait until paint chips are visible from the street to repaint. Repainting your exterior and interior is a great way to make a massive impact in updating your home.

Is it time to repaint your house?

Here are 5 reasons that you should repaint your home:

You’re putting the house up for sale

First impressions only happen once. Painting your home is the easiest way to update the look of your home before you sell it. It leaves the house feeling clean and inviting. It will boost the appeal of the house to potential buyers, and will make it look fresh and up to date.

The Paint is fading

Fading paint makes a home look worn, tired and dated. The fading is caused by UV rays breaking down the paint, making the pigment fade. When the paint doesn’t look so good anymore, it is time to get going on a new paint job.

Peeling or cracking paint

If your paint is cracking, peeling or flaking off, it is no longer protecting your home from the elements. You will need to repaint your home as soon as possible as these areas will carry on getting worse as they are exposed to water, Sun and heat.

Mildew and mold

Mould and mildew occur where it is damp, in badly ventilated areas, and near leaks. Removing the mold and mildew (and the cause of any leaks) and repainting the area is the best solution.

The right amount of time has passed

Your house exterior may still look as good as it did 10 years ago, but don’t wait until there are visible signs that you need to repaint. Repainting before you have issues will save you hassle and money. Paint does not last forever and needs to be reapplied so that it can carry on protecting and making your home look great. Most quality paints last about 7 – 10 years. This depends on how well your house was painted the last time,  the quality of the paint that way used, the quality of the prep work that was done, and the surface of your exterior.

Understanding when it’s time to open up a can of paint is a valuable lesson for any homeowner. Anyone who enters your home, from guests to potential buyers or tenants will leave with a first impression, so make it a good one!
