What Can Exterior Painting Do for a Home?


 
Interior Design

For people who are planning on selling their homes, there is one brutal fact to be aware of: most home improvement projects do not increase the value of a home. Pools are nice, but they are an extra expense, with increased insurance rates and maintenance, and are a danger to small pets, children, and intruders. Cabinets are never the way that a new home owner wants them, and even a nicely remodeled kitchen will need modifications to meet what new people want in a kitchen. However, a new coat of paint inside and out can mean an increase of price well beyond what the paint job costs. That makes exterior painting in Douglasville one of the best investments you can make to the resale value of your home.

More Protection

In aviation, there is an argument about painting a plane. The paint protects the plane from impacts that would damage the body and reduce aerodynamics. The accumulation of these impacts would cause the plane to operate at lower efficiency, and eventually waste fuel due to the reduction in streamlining. However, paint is expensive and heavy. A plane uses more fuel just to haul its paint through the air than it would if there was no paint. The question then becomes, is it worth it to paint the plane and save the body the damage it would otherwise take?

Fortunately, homes do not move through the air. They only have to deal with the effects of sun, heat, rain, cold, and windblown items. That means that even for those who are not planning on leaving their home any time soon, a new paint job on the outside of the house makes sense. The home is a family's largest investment, and a coat of paint provides protection from the elements to the house's exterior walls. Homeowners could even increase the energy efficiency of their homes by choosing the right paint, and that could save money in the long run.

Keeping Up Appearances

Most neighborhoods have some sort of homeowner's association that regulates the appearance of the neighborhood. Cracked and peeling paint doesn't just affect one home, but it also affects the values of the homes around the property. Perhaps more importantly, it affects the reputation of the people who live in the unkempt house. No one wants the neighbors to think that his or her family comes from a home that is derelict. No one wants to be thought of as a slob. A fresh coat of paint helps the entire neighborhood to look nicer, and it keeps the homeowner's reputation intact. That can be important to save embarrassment or worse when needing to ask the neighbors for a cup of sugar or some other type of help.

The Paint Party

It may seem like a great idea to save some money and just invite a couple of buddies over for a painting party. After all, a couple of pizzas and some drinks are pretty inexpensive. However, getting a professional to do the exterior painting in Douglasville can save homeowners a lot of problems. Most professional painters guarantee their work. They know how to wield their equipment and will finish the job in half the time that it would take amateurs. They will also make sure that the home is prepared correctly, and many are capable of taking care of any homes that may still have lead paint, which is highly toxic. Home owners can then have a housewarming party when the paint job is done. That way, there is no loss of bonding opportunity, and the home gets a great paint job.
