The coating of paint on your home's exterior is the first layer of defense against our harsh Colorado weather! You know the saying, "If you don't like the weather, wait 10 minutes!" With the extreme hot and cold that we Coloradans experience, having a solid coat of quality latex paint paint on your home's exterior is key to keeping your house protected.
Okay here are the top reasons to get your house painted in the Spring!
1. Your Home's Exterior Has Been Stressed by Weather
That's right, as mentioned briefly above, Colorado weather can do some major damage to the exterior of your home! The harsh sun depletes the paints color and more importantly durability leaving the wood products underneath to fend for them selves. When this happens, wood will rot, nails will rust, and then, yes there is more, water will seep into that wood and behind that wood causing further damage to your house, costing you, lots of money. Wow, who knew, the value of painting your exterior. But hey, life is busy and we live inside our home, we often pull into our garages and go straight inside not realizing, during the winter months, how bad the paint may be getting.
2. Repair on Your Home
When painting your home, you come across all the little repairs that need to be made where the paint has failed or worn through. As mentioned above, the harsh weather can be a large factor in needing to repaint your house. The wood that has been damaged will be revealed when we come to do the prep work, or you may already be seeing the rotted wood, or flaking paint. All of these things indicates the need for repair and repainting your house. In addition to you or your neighbors seeing your faded paint on your house, the HOA may have sent you a letter. We understand that all to well and are here to help with any of those HOA "request letters". We can help you choose the paint colors that have been pre-chosen by your HOA or help you get new ones approved.
3. Improving Your Homes Curb Appeal
A perfect segue from item #2! Be it a letter from the HOA or you are just tired of the same old colors, or even your ready to sell your house, painting the exterior of your house for putting it on the market is a great idea! Improving the curb appeal of your home gives a great first impression to anyone coming to visit and especially for selling your home. When a potential buyer first arrives, seeing the beautiful new colors and fresh paint leaves a happy feeling as they walk in to view the rest of your home.
4. Increase the Value of Your Home
Painting your home is one of the most cost effective ways to increase the value of your home. The increase in your home’s value is typically much greater the cost of getting it painted by a professional.
5. It's Just Time!
Exterior paint has an expiration date. The amount of time between the need for exterior paint jobs is partly a factor of the type of paint you use. When you use a better quality of exterior paint, you can wait longer before the next paint job is needed. Another factor is the quality of work performed in painting the home.
