Most people will agree that painting a house is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to freshen things up, particularly if you’re in the mood for a change of color. You can go from stale to “WOW” in a day or two. However, many of us don’t realize that there are other benefits to applying a fresh coat of paint to your home.
Five Benefits of Painting
- Increases Real Estate Value of Your Home
Painting both interior and exterior surfaces will increase the overall real estate value of your home. This enhances curb appeal and makes the home more attractive to perspective buyers, so long as you choose either traditional or popular colors. No fuschia, please.
- Promotes Health
Using high quality, low VOC (volatile organic compound) and zero VOC paints to paint your interior rooms reduces odors and fumes, promotes healthy indoor air quality, and lowers dust and other particulate levels that may cause allergies and other breathing problems.
- Protects Surfaces
Painting the exterior of your home’s walls, trim, and other surfaces will help protect the home from deteriorating substrates, unwanted insects, and will defend it from the destructive forces of Mother Nature. We routinely repair or replace facia, wood siding and doors that deteriorated because the homeowner waited too long between paint jobs.
- The Most Inexpensive Remodel
Painting is a simple, cost-effective way to improve your home’s appearance. Modernizing colors, outspoken accents, or adding eye catching designs with decorative (faux) painting may be just what you need to refresh and transform your living spaces at a fraction of the price it would cost to fully remodel.
- Enhances Mood
Painting is often viewed as simply a matter of aesthetics – what looks attractive. But proponents of color psychology believe that the colors you use to paint the rooms of your home can dramatically change how you feel in that space both spatially and emotionally.
