Why Should You Repaint Your Home’s Exterior?
Doing any renovation on your Westchester County home can prove advantageous if it’s done professionally and in good taste.
Giving the exterior of your house, a colorful touch is one of the best techniques to enhance your home’s functionality and appearance. Are you considering repainting your Westchester County home’s exterior but you’re on the fence? Not convinced if it’s worth the trouble? Here are five things to consider – and of course as painters we may be a little partial to the look of a freshly painted home – but who doesn’t like it when things look, clean, crisp and cared for?
1. Painting your home will Boost its Curb Appeal
In the day and age we live in, we are all hanging out, outside more than ever. This means we are all staring at the outsides of our friends’ homes more than ever. Make sure your home looks its best from the backyard, front yard and curb!
Of course, if you’re putting your home up for sale, a freshly painted exterior creates a world of difference. A clean freshly coated house, just like one with brand new siding, pops. Painting is a quarter of the price of re-siding you home but offers just as much bang! A fresh coat of paint will send your home curb appeal soaring. Fresh paint also sets the tone of your home when friends or a potential buyer sees it for the first time.
Giving your home a fresh coat of paint will turn back the hands of time and ensure you home is one of the newer looking homes bumping up not only its value but that of your whole neighborhoods.
2. Painting your home’s Exterior will Increase Your Home Value
If and when the time comes or has come to sell, the first step you and your real estate team ill take is to have a home appraiser come out to evaluate your home. Having a recent paint job pon the walls of your house will impact it final value.
Exterior paint offers an attractive return of 141% on the investment. This is one of the home improvement projects with a truly jaw-dropping ROI. Your project is capable of recouping its own cost, build value and then some!
3. Exterior Painters will Provide- Proactive Identification of Insect Damage
A reputable Westchester area painting company will be able to spot and identify signs of insect damage on your home’s exterior; before any major repairs are needed.
Also, freshly painted homes are protected. Modern paint shields your home creating an outer protective layer around your home, making it hard for insects like termites to burrow into the siding since paint binds up and seals all the little cracks we don’t see but bugs love to call home.
4. Exterior Paint Provides Enhanced Protection Against the Elements
The elements of nature such as rain, sleet, snow, ice and wind, will over time, weaken your home’s exterior.
Paint guards against the damaging effects of moisture from seeping into your house, a fresh coat of paint will also protect your home from mildew and mold damage.
5. Fresh Exterior Paint Extends Siding Lifespan
Fresh paint on the exterior of your house can help maintain your siding and cover up some blemishes for the time being. Notwithstanding, if the siding is in poor condition, it is good to replace it. Painting is a good option but not a fix-all.

Why Fall is the Best Time to Repaint Your Home’s Exterior
For your paint job to turn out perfectly, the weather has to cooperate.
This ensures that the paint has the opportunity to cure and dry properly. When it is too hot, the paint dries up too fast, which leads to a less than perfect finish. High humidity levels also affect the even application of paint since it takes too long to dry.
