Homeowners are in agreement that an easy and quick way to update or refresh a home is to paint a couple rooms or the entire property. Painting produces an immediate change, whether the living room is painted or if you change the color of the whole exterior. Painting the exterior of a home or the interior walls and trim also adds other value besides having a new look. A fresh coat of paint inside can revitalize your home and painting the exterior increases the overall value of your home. Upkeep of the paint in your home is a necessary part of home ownership.
When hiring professional painters to paint your house interior, you’re likely wondering how often your walls, ceilings, and trim should be painted. While the most popular reason for interior painting is to update the colors of a room, another good reason is for general upkeep to ensure your home always looks great.
Experts suggest painting your house interior every 5 to 7 years. Painting interior walls and trim keeps dust at bay, especially in homes with plaster walls. When permanent stains or marks are difficult to remove, painting the house inside and out will help to hide these defects.
Painting the interior surfaces will help to resist wear and tear and protect walls and trim from moisture. The exterior of your home deserves equal attention! The aesthetic value of your house isn’t just for you; if you’re interested in selling your home, exterior paint can greatly increase your potential curb appeal. Most experts say that you‘ll need to paint every five to ten years, depending on factors such as where you live, climate and weather, and the previous paint job. Also, keep in mind that every surface will be a little different. For example: Wood siding – every 3-7 years, or every 4 years if it’s stained. Give us a call today to get your house painted!
