A fresh coat of paint can make a world of difference for both the interior and exterior of your home. In fact, according to HomeLight, repainting interior walls increases home value by an average of 5% and nets an ROI of 107%. As a homeowner, here are five signs it might be time to call your local painter.
Even if you choose a good paint brand, you can’t expect a coat of paint to last forever. Paint tends to fade over time, especially with repeated exposure to light. Faded paint is a sign that it’s time to have your home repainted.
Paint can peel as a result of physical damage, water damage, or heat-related damage. Whatever the case may be, peeling paint is a sign that you should hire a professional to paint your home. Minor peeling can eventually lead to large sections of damaged paint, so you should fix peeling paint as soon as possible.
Blistering is a somewhat common result of moisture working its way underneath the paint. Whether you painted on a rainy day or had unexpected rain right after you finished painting, moisture can cause bubbles to form on the exterior of your home. Interior paint blistering may be a sign of an additional moisture problem.
4. Outdated Colors
You don’t have to repaint your home if it’s outdated, but outdated colors are a common reason that people hire painters. Your local painter can help you find a more up-to-date color scheme for your home, whether you’re painting an interior bedroom or painting the exterior of your home.
5. Preparing for a Sale
If you’re planning on selling your home, you need to make sure everything is in pristine condition. Painting your home before you sell can help you maximize resale value and make it easier to find buyers, so it’s smart to hire a painter before you list your home. Make sure you talk to your painter about popular home painting trends before you decide on colors.
Both interior and exterior painting can make a real difference in terms of how your home looks and feels. If you’re looking for a local painter who can help you choose the best color scheme and get your home painted, give our team at Peacock Services Home Improvement a call today.
