Reasons to Paint the Exterior of Your Home

Reasons to Paint the Exterior of Your Home

The paint on your home drastically influences the overall look of it, but it also provides protection to the essential parts underneath it. Innovative Builders is well aware of the reasons you should be painting your home every 3-7 years, are you?

Long-Term Wear

The weather takes a serious toll on the outside of our homes. From wind to rain to scorching sun, your home has been there to protect you from it all, but that does not mean that a few scars have not been left behind. Most of us do not take a close look at the exterior of our homes on a regular basis, but if your home has not been painted in quite some time, you may find it too easy to spot the chipping and cracking paint when you do take a peek at it. As mentioned before, chipping and cracking paint is more than just a cosmetic issue. If there is no paint as a barrier, exposed wood does not take long to begin to rot. Surely, the last thing you want is the bones of your home rotting away.


An added benefit to repainting your home is the ability to identify areas on the outside of your home that may need to be repaired. At Innovative Builders for example, we are highly trained in repairing siding, gutters, roofing and more. So, when you call us out to do a job such as painting, we can also alert you to problems areas that you may want to keep an eye on. Or better yet, you can allow us to fix those areas while we are already out. Doing needed repairs sooner rather than later will surely save you money and heartache down the line. After all, we all know that a repair will cost you less money than a replacement will.

Curb Appeal

Are you looking to sell your home? Most potential buyers decide whether they want to look at the inside of a home based on the outside alone. While you can bump up your landscaping, nothing is going to increase your curb appeal quite like a nice paint job.

In addition to this, painting the outside of your home will also increase its overall value. Especially when you compare how much it costs to hire a professional to paint your house versus how much value fresh paint adds to your house, it’s an all-around win for you.

If you have realized that you have let your exterior paint go without a touchup for a little too long, do not hesitate to give us call! Or if you have any other home needs you would like to discuss, such as the addition of a four seasons sunroom, we would be more than happy to talk about your options with you.
