Five Reasons Why it’s Important to Have the Exterior of Your Home Painted
The exterior of your house is the first thing someone sees, and sometimes the only thing they see if they’re just going by. Curb appeal is essential to the upkeep of your home, bringing a clean exterior (including, and especially the exterior paint) to the front of people’s minds.
But that isn’t the only reason why a neat looking home exterior paint job is important. There are at least 5 reasons to keep in mind to stop you from continuing to put off a new exterior home painting job everytime you look at the fading or chipping exterior of your house.
1.) An Extra Layer of Defense
The outdoors isn’t always kind to our homes. From harsh sun and extreme weather conditions, the outer layer of exterior paint provides an extra layer of protection to your home. The paint helps to prevent the elements from entering the siding of your home and avoid rotting and mold.
2.) Curb Appeal & House Personality
Of course, there is still the curb appeal to consider. It’s what people see of your house from the outside. Additionally, though, it adds character and personality to the house depending on the color you pick. Show off your personality to the outside or accurately give off the vibe to match your home’s style in just a coat of paint.
Think of the homes around Allentown in Buffalo. All of the brightly colored houses. It’s a lively neighborhood full of bright colors and personality.
3.) Increased Lifespan of Siding
If the aesthetic reasons aren’t enough, there’s the cost effective nature of a fresh coat of paint on your home. Exterior paint in good condition will help extend the lifespan of your siding. Save your siding for longer by adding a fresh coat of paint, protecting it.
4.) Add Home Value
Looking to sell your home soon? Instantly boost the value of your home with a fresh coat of paint. While this adds to the overall curb appeal of your home it’s worth noting separately. While sticking with a neutral color is your best bet here, you still improve curb appeal, show that the home has been cared for and can help provide personality to soon-to-be home buyers.
5.) You Don’t Have to do the Work Yourself
Maybe it's the thought of the work keeping you off. Now that it’s summer, the weather is warm and the timing seems perfect to paint the exterior of your home, but the work may seem less appealing.
Don’t worry, you don’t need to do the work by yourself. There’s a team of professional painting contractors at Paint of WNY ready to help you paint your home, no matter the part of Western New York you’re in.
