You may think of painting your house as a necessity only after it's faded or the old paint begins to chip off the edges. However, there are many important benefits to painting your home that extend far beyond the final look.
For example, if you're thinking about selling your home within the next year or two, a fresh paint job can be a big selling point for multiple reasons. For one, the buyer will have a better impression of the home if the colors are properly matched.
This includes coordination between the roof, gutters, trim and more on the exterior. As for the interior, properly accented paint colors that mix well with the style of the home and the furniture in it can really be a turning point for a potential buyer. You want to show them what your home looks like at its full potential, rather than leaving the buyer with work to do.
Maybe you are a full time resident and don't plan on leaving anytime soon. If that's the case, don't you want your home to have the best protection possible? With daily summer rainstorms, raging high temperatures and regular hurricanes making a visit, it's important we protect our SW Florida homes from the environment we live in.
A fresh exterior paint job with high quality paint has lasting benefits such as waterproof sealing, which protects your home from water damage that can occur from cracks in the stucco. Paint products like Behr also offer a lifetime warranty on their paint, so using it would be a wonderful long term investment as they guarantee longevity of the paints protection.
I'm sure we can all agree that the beautiful look of the home is the #1 benefit of a fresh coat of paint, but it's important to keep in mind the other benefits as well. If you want your home to last and be at it's best at all times, consider hiring a professional painting company to bring your home to life.
