WOBURN, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 4, 2013) - As animals slowly begin to wake from hibernation and the cold weather recedes with spring's first flowers, homeowners start to think of ways to improve and beautify their home in concert with the awakening of the natural environment around them. Spring and summer are often the best times to update your home's exterior painting because the most severe weather of the year has passed and it may be time to repair damage that was caused by this weather.
There are many reasons to consider home painting, but four of the main motivations that drive homeowners are:
1. The increase in real estate value
One of the best ways to increase your home's market value is with exterior painting. Compared to renovations and remodeling, house painting is a much cheaper alternative. According to Remodeling Magazine, the average cost of a complete kitchen remodel in 2012 was $57,000, compared to an average of $3,000-$5,000 for exterior home painting (CostHelper.com). Although pricing may vary, you can see that the potential return on your investment is much greater with exterior home painting.
2. Enhancing your home's curb appeal
Like the feeling of wearing a new favorite outfit, your home will be dressed up and ready to shine with a new coat of exterior paint. It can help your home stand out in the neighborhood and have people slowing down to look at your beautiful new exterior! And if you're looking to sell your home, boosting curb appeal is a great way to attract the interest of potential home buyers.
3. Protection of your home's exterior
Many people forget the protective qualities that paint provides. It adds a layer of protection against harsh weather, especially ice and snow, and acts as a seal to keep out moisture from the rain.
4. Supplying new life to an old home
Exterior house painting could be the perfect option for you if you have been looking for a way to reinvigorate your home with the splendor that was felt when you first moved in. Changing your home's exterior coloring could even provide you and your family with a more positive outlook on life in general; your bright and beautiful newly painted home will be ready and waiting for you after a long day.
Painting the exterior of your house on your own may not seem like a difficult task to undertake at first, but consider the benefits of hiring a professional painting company like College Pro Painters.
- Knowledge and craftsmanship
You get the skills of a trained professional and the knowledge that comes with it. You won't have to do any guesswork or worry about an inferior craftsmanship.
- Insured, bonded and licensed
Insured painters are covered in case of on-site accidents (at your home); you will not be liable for injuries that could happen while painting.
- Preparation and clean up
Preparing your home for the application of paint is a job in and of itself. Once again, having a team of trained professionals take care of this will simplify the process for any homeowner. Once the paint has been applied, the painting teams will return your home to the same state of cleanliness that was seen prior to the arrival of painters.
