Signs You Need To Paint the Outside of Your Home

by Bradley Davis

When the exterior of your home needs some work, you want to hire an exterior painter to get the job done quickly and efficiently. Ideally, you should paint your home's exterior every five years or so, or at least every 10 years. Certain siding may require more frequent painting, which is something you can discuss with your exterior painter.

If you paint your home's exterior, you not only make your home look better, you help preserve its siding and entire structure longer. Here are signs you need to paint the outside of your home. 

The siding is showing through

If you have wooden siding, then the wood may show through if the paint is starting to wear out. Peeling or bubbling paint can reveal the siding underneath, and exposed siding can become susceptible to water or sun damage. It's wise to have your exterior painter come and inspect your home's paint job if you are worried about the condition of your home's exterior paint.

The paint is dated

Paint trends come and go in the world of home design and decor, and if it's been a long time since you've painted your home, you may be left with a house that looks less appealing than neighboring homes. Consider painting your home a dark neutral color, or choose a soft white to make your house pop in a whole new way. Your exterior painting specialist will show you several paint colors that are trending and timeless in style to give your home a more attractive curb appeal.

You're selling or renting your home

If you plan on selling or renting your home in the near future, it's a good idea to paint your home's exterior to give your home a greater appeal and make it more attractive to potential buyers or renters. Your exterior painter can paint your home and doors and make your home look new and inviting — which gives the impression the home is well-cared for — so new inhabitants will feel confident in living there.

If you have painting ideas for the outside of your home, let your painter know. Your exterior painter will use your budget and ideas to help come up with a great painting solution for your home. They can also give you a price quote for painting your home's exterior, which will be based on several factors, including the size of your home, the amount of preparation your home will require, and how much trim or detailed painting will be done.
