While it can be apparent when your home requires a much-needed paint job, it’s not always so visible. However, as a responsible homeowner, you’ll want to make sure that you keep up with your home’s paint and repaints before it becomes a much more expensive problem. So, in today’s blog, let’s explore how you can identify whether or not your home requires a new paint job.

It’s Been 7-10 Years Since It’s Last Coat Of Paint

Most homes require a new paint job every 7 to 10 years to stay in tip-top beautiful condition. Performing these routine paint jobs prevents much of the chipping or peeling, ensuring that you have a much easier and less expensive paint job on your hands. 

Your Home’s Exterior Is Fading

Have you noticed that your home just isn’t quite as bright and beautiful anymore? Paint isn’t invincible, especially when you think about the hours that your home spends under the hot sun throughout its life. If your home’s color is fading, while not urgent, it just may be time to give it a repaint. However, if you uneven faded blotches or paint streaks, this could indicate that your home has water leaks, something that does need to be addressed with haste.

Cracked or Bubbled Exterior Paint

While we all seek to get ahead of exterior home situations before they arise, we’re not always successful in this endeavor. If you discover cracked, bubbled, and chipped surfaces, due to harsh weather conditions, time, or other unforeseen occurrences, you’ll want to find the source of the problem and quickly resolve it. However, after solving the problem, you’ll definitely want to replace those old cracked and chipped paint sections with a fresh coat, making your home look like new again!

You’re Selling Your Home

Paint jobs are one of the best and easiest ways to increase your home’s curb appeal when putting your home onto the market. As the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression, so taking the time to put a fresh and shiny coat of paint onto your home is one of the best ways to make that first impression stick.
