Painting your house as a DIY project is hard. It can be time consuming, inconvenient and stressful. However, it can be a good investment that extends the integrity of your house, which to most families is their single greatest asset. Not only is a fresh coat of paint your home’s first defense against the elements, it’s also the first impression guests and potential buyers receive when visiting your property. If your paint is faded, chipped or peeling, it’s time to repaint.
Here are a few other common signs your house needs a fresh coat of paint:
Color fading is common on most house paints. Especially with new homes, it’s common for builders and or real estate developers to use low or mid-grade paints. Also, the more vivid or vibrant your home colors are, the more noticeable faded paint colors can be. Bright colored paints can fade unevenly, leaving blotchy, uneven spots on your walls. The sun’s UV rays can also cause paint to fade or transform to a different shade than you were hoping for. It’s important to use high quality paint that can withstand sun bleaching and fading overtime.
Cracking or Flaking Paint
No one wants to discover their home has cracked or flaky paint. This can be especially worrisome because cracking paint is a common sign of dry rot and mold. You may even have damage underneath the paint that needs to be properly addressed or treated by an experienced painting pro in your area.
Ugly Paint Stains
Water stains and general wear-and-tear are common, especially when you have young kids running around the house. A fresh coat of paint not only gives your home an affordable “face lift” it can also help to keep your property maintained over time. Stains can be a symptom of bigger issues or potential health hazards. The painters at United Construction Solutions advise the proper identification of any potential issues such as harmful mold, mildew, or ugly water stains.
