Whether you purchased a new property or are just looking to revitalize your current home,
painting improves appearance, provides essential protection, and can increase the value of a
home. A new coat of paint can transform the look of your residence overnight. You might even
feel like you are moving into a new home! When a professional painter does quality work it will
hide minor defects or stains. You may not have to fill in cracks or remove those permanent
marks. Painting your home is the first line of defense against weather, insects, corrosion, and
water damage. A pro paint job can provide you with invaluable protection for many years. All
paint jobs will keep dirt and dust to a minimum (especially homes with plaster walls). Choosing
zero-VOC or low VOC finishes and paints reduces fumes and odors—supplying your family with
cleaner and healthier air.
Additionally, curb appeal— the way your home looks from the street— is a determining factor for potential buyers. In fact, a beautiful home with high curb appeal can potentially increase the market value of you home by 5-10%. Few people want to buy a house with chipped and worn-down paint. If you are looking for a quick, cost-efficient method to make your home more attractive, a well-chosen paint job will make your home a hot commodity.
It’s a tough question. There is no one answer or set timeline as to when you should paint you home. However, there are some guidelines to follow. Most expert painters will say to paint the exterior every five to ten years, and maybe even longer for your interior. It really all comes down to the quality of your previous paint job, the climate of where you live, and how often your paint gets banged up. Before you hire a professional painter, ask yourself these questions: Is the paint chipped, peeling, or cracked? Is there exposed wood or sign of water damage? How does my home look? Will a new coat of paint make me happy?
Again, a lot of it comes down to where you live. Snow or the relentless heat of the Sun can quickly deteriorate your coat. But, the type of material that makes up the exterior of your home plays a large role. Keep in mind every surface is a little different. New Materials for example, cement fiberboard can go up to 10-15 years before repainting. Typically these new age materials can hold a fresh coat of paint longer and require less touch up. Below you will find our recommendations on when to paint different exterior materials:
The interior paint of any home is not as exposed to the harsh weather conditions as the exterior. Still, it doesn’t mean you won’t need to repaint. Interior paint maintenance depends on the surface of your home and which room you are looking at. Below you will find our recommendations on when to paint different interior areas of your home:
This is the most exciting, but arguably the most important part of your new painting project! With thousands of color shades to choose from, it can seem like a challenge to pick the right one to suit your design choice and lifestyle. Hiring a local PoweredByPros painting professional to ask expert advice will help you make the right color decision. With over 10 years of experience, you can rely on us to help guide you through the painting process and leave your property looking brand new. When you are deciding to move forward in the painting process, just keep in mind these tips when selecting a new color scheme:
Writing down or taking a picture of each area of your home comes in handy when visiting a paint shop (reminder of current design, easy for comparing shades). You can order paint online, but seeing color variations in person is recommended.
Narrow down a list of at least three colors you like. Even if you fall in love with one specific color at the shop, it may not look great when you splash it on a big wall. It’s important to have a few of your favorites just in case.
Keep in mind accents and trims. Monotonous paint schemes can be boring and dull. Contouring your exterior paints with different colors can turn heads and leave you happy for years to come with your interior.
Ultimately, you need to be pretty handy and have experience with large-scale painting to do a good DIY paint job. Improper technique can lead to messy results, wasted time, and potential damage. A pro painter will avoid these unnecessary mistakes.
