Why You Should Repaint Your Home’s Exterior in the Spring

Spring is here, which means you’ll probably stop layering up and start enjoying the outdoors more very soon. When Spring comes, many people take on various Spring cleaning and home renovation projects, and painting should be at the top of that list. If you think your home could use a new coat of paint, Spring is a great time to get the job on the books. Painting your home is a profitable investment that will benefit your family for years to come.

Painting Now Prevents Repairs Later

Taking the time and making the investment in painting your home this spring can actually save you a lot of time and money in the future. Weather can cause wear to your paint, which in turn can flake or chip off, leaving the wood underneath exposed to serious potential damage from the elements. Applying a fresh coat of paint as soon as you notice serious wear can help protect the wood under the paint and extend the life of your home's exterior.

Additionally, the process of scraping off old paint and preparing the outside of your home for a fresh coat of paint can help you identify any bigger issues. Is there a rotten board? Water damage in an area that implies there could be leaks in the roof or one of your eaves? Have insects, such as termites or carpenter ants, penetrated the weak points in the paint? The sooner you discover and remedy these kinds of issues, the less expensive addressing them will be. If you wait to paint until your home looks truly disheveled, it may be too late to address issues like bugs or dry rot on the wood underneath.

Painting Can Make Your Home Look New Again

If you invested in long-lasting paint the last time you painted your exterior, or if your home is still coated in paint applied by the previous owner, chances are the color and type of paint used is now pretty outdated. When you decide to paint the outside of your home, you can help it look newer and more modern. You can go bright or classic.  

In addition to increasing your curb appeal and helping your home look more modern, a fresh coat of paint can inspire you (and your neighbors) to invest more in the outsides of your homes. What's the point of landscaping when your paint is peeling? Conversely, your freshly-painted home will be begging for some well-tended and placed flowers, bushes, and trees.

Your neighbors, seeing how you have invested in your home and its curb appeal, may be inspired to follow suit. This can help boost property values in your neighborhood and increase a sense of pride by people in the community.
