5 Signs It's Time to Paint Your House

by Kevin Smith Author

Do you ever feel like your home is lacking the verve it once had? The chances are you haven't had it painted in a while. While it can be inconvenient having to prep for a paint job and then clean up afterwards, the difference a new paint job can have makes the process all worthwhile. Here are a few indications it might be time to hire some experts in house painting in Marietta.

1. Damage Due to Moisture

A lot of times the kind of damage your home might suffer due to poor weather proofing will show up in the paint on your walls. When water leaks in through the roof — or moisture seeps in through cracks around windows and doors — paint can bubble and crack. Not only will you have to repair whatever it is that's impacting your walls, but you'll need a new paint job as well.

2. Sun Damage

The parts of your house that are facing the sun are likely to fade over time. This goes for both interior and exterior walls. Eventually, the difference will be broad enough that it looks like the same room is painted with two different shades of the same color. That's when you know it's time to have it repainted.

3. Fixing Cracks

If you notice a rash of stucco cracks, there's no point in fixing and painting each one individually. No matter what you think, people will notice. Better to patch all the stucco cracks and repaint the house at the same time. That way you know all the walls will match.

4. Increase Your Home Value

If you're considering selling your home, you definitely should paint the house. If you're not, however, you still may want to put it on the market in the near future, in which case you'll be ahead of the game with a freshly painted house. Either way, your house will look better from the street, and you can feel satisfied with its curb appeal whether you're interested in selling or not.

5. Don't Wait

If your house hasn't been painted in a while, it will eventually need it. If you wait too long, the paint (especially outside) will begin to chip, peel, and look awful. Better to nip it in the bud before the real damage takes place.

When you're ready to give your home the full repainting it deserves, call up a company that specializes in house painting in Marietta, and you'll have a gorgeous new home in no time.
