Benefits of Painting Your Home’s Exterior

Painting the outside of your home may seem like an overwhelming project, especially in the early stages of planning and decision-making: Who will do the work? What type of paint should be used? What color is best? Is this all worth it? 

Luckily, there are a variety of benefits for your house after adding a coat of paint to the exterior to convince you to keep going.  

Here are a few key advantages to painting your home’s exterior:

Protection From Harsh Weather

Your home’s exterior is always exposed to nature’s elements, and as a result, it can endure a lot of wear and tear. A layer of paint on your siding of the right color and quality can make all the difference in delaying the weather’s effects and deterioration. 

Deter Bugs

Various types of bugs and termites would love to get into your home’s exterior. But with the right kind of paint designed to keep bugs away, you can create a barrier designed to deter these insects and protect your siding. This extra layer of protection will give you, as a homeowner, peace of mind that your siding isn’t vulnerable to disastrous bugs. 

Preserve Structural Integrity

When the wooden supports of your home’s structure are left exposed and without paint, there is a greater risk of mold and mildew developing and leading to rot. Painting your home’s exterior and utilizing regular maintenance can reduce these risks. 

Long-Lasting Siding

The siding on your house can last upwards of 20 years without many issues, but external factors such as sun exposure, humidity, and harsh weather can cause their lifespan to decrease gradually. Adding a fresh layer of paint as protection can prevent this wear and tear and is a simple and effective way to increase the siding’s longevity. 

Increased Home Value and Appearance

Curb appeal can play a big role in the overall value of your home when it comes time to sell. A fresh coat of paint in a color to match the rest of your home can greatly enhance the appearance and beauty of your home, which will, as a result, drive up the value and interest of potential buyers.
