5 Reasons You Should Consider Painting Your Home

Painting Your Home

Most people see the benefit of painting the interior of their home, but some don’t necessarily see the advantages of painting the exterior of their home. However, it can be just as beneficial and necessary. Here are five reasons you need to think about painting the outside of your home:

Appearance and Curb Appeal

One of the most obvious reasons it paint your home is to enhance its exterior appearance. This may be for your own personal gain or because you plan to sell your home in the near future. Either way, a fresh coat of paint is going to make a world of difference.

Prevent Termite Damage

When you paint your siding, you are essentially sealing off any areas that have been exposed. In doing this, you are ensuring that your siding is no longer susceptible to damage from wood=easting pests, such as termites.

Extend the Life of Your Siding

Depending on the type of siding that your home has, it can last for decades. For example, vinyl siding is known to last roughly 50 years when it is well taken care of. However, everyday wear and tear can take its toll on exterior siding. Luckily, painting can help extend the life of any type of siding.

Harsh Winter Protection

Extreme temperatures, especially in the winter, can wreak havoc on your siding. It isn’t just the temperatures that can do damage, as it is also the snow, ice, rain and other harsh elements that are experienced during colder weather. Paint can help add an extra layer of protection between Old Man Winter and your home.

Increase Structural Integrity

If your home has wood siding and isn’t painted, it’s more prone to water damage. In addition, it is more susceptible to the growth of mold and mildew, which will gradually cause the wood to deteriorate and rot. This will essentially cause your home’s structural integrity to suffer. Eventually, this could lead to your siding needing to be replaced – in pieces or all over.
