Paint the Exterior before it becomes Inferior' - Paintway

Has it been a while since you’ve made the effort to maintain exterior paint on your property?

Generally speaking, homes should be repainted every five to ten years, less if your home experiences extended periods of direct sunlight is an essential step in any property’s maintenance routine.

Why? Let’s take a look at three of the top reasons.

Maintain exterior paint to boost curb appeal

If you are planning on selling your property in the next year or so, a fresh coat of exterior paint is an absolute must. Peeling, blistered, and faded paint can turn prospective buyers away before they even step inside. A newly painted exterior may also give your house the edge it needs to win over a buyer if they are tossing up between a couple of properties.

Even if you’re not selling your property, maintaining your property’s exterior paintwork can boost curb appeal and leave a good impression. We mow our lawns and keep our front yards clean and tidy because it shows respect for our home, the place we spend the majority of our time. Making the effort to maintain exterior paint is exactly the same.

Find and repair damage before it gets worse

When repainting your exterior, you (or the professional painters you call in) will need to thoroughly examine your property for damage, such as mould and water damage. If any is found, it will need to be repaired prior to painting.

If you don’t repaint your exterior, you may not uncover this damage. Left for an extended period of time, even minor water damage can become severe, costly to repair, and dangerous if it impacts the structural integrity of your property.

Maintain exterior paint to keep your home looking modern

Keeping up with the latest trends in home design is a fantastic way to breathe new life into your home, and one of the best ways to do this is exterior painting. Take the opportunity to add contemporary flair to your property, using complementary colours to accentuate architectural details.

Not only will this allow you to express your unique sense of style, but an updated exterior will also add value to your property. It’s a win-win.
