Increasing Home Value for Resale

If you are thinking about putting your home on the market, touching up or repairing exterior paint especially in areas where the paint is falling off or peeling can improve a potential buyers’ first impression of the house, as well as its overall curb appeal. It is also a good idea to consider repairing and repainting damaged walls in key areas throughout your home, such as the entrance, hallways, and kitchen. For the most added value for resale purposes, consider painting scuffed baseboards throughout the house, painting kitchen cabinets, and painting the front door.

Increasing Home Value for Maintenance & Longevity

Homeowners who are planning to stay in their homes for a long time can still use new paint to help maintain the house, while also increasing its overall value. If you are planning on living in your house for years to come, staying on top of maintaining or repainting areas that show wear and tear both inside and outside can help increase your house’s lifespan and keep it looking fresh and clean. Make sure to repaint the house’s exterior frequently enough to reduce common issues, such as moisture ingress and chalking.
