When you pull up to your home, do you see paint starting to flake or chip? Do you feel it looks dull or outdated? Are you looking for a way to increase the value of your home? Knowing the answers to these questions will help you make this decision.

Flaking, peeling or chipping paint are true signs of an aging home. Exposed surfaces, such as raw wood, are unprotected against the elements, and leaving raw surfaces untreated can accelerate the structural integrity of your home. Moisture is usually the main cause of these issues and can create mold and unnecessary health problems for anyone living in the home.

Other factors play a role, including the type of paint used on your home (whether it was premium paint or a cheaper alternative), or if a primer coat was applied.

Dullness can be another sign of age, depending on where your home is located and how exposed to the elements it is. In addition, if your home is a darker color, it will fade faster than a lighter color.

Outdated does not feel good to say when describing your home to someone. Just like interior design, the exterior design, color choice, and general upkeep of your home can reflect your personal style. With a free color consultation for all of our clients, Stanford Painting can help you choose a modern color scheme that is to your liking!

Increasing the value of your home before a refinance or selling is always a good idea. The easiest way is to paint. It will help make your home competitive on the open market and your home will be one of the best-looking in the neighborhood.

Whatever the reason may be to repaint your home it is a great idea. Quality paint professionally applied can delay the aging process and add value to your investment.
