6 Reasons Why You Should Consider Painting Your Home's Exterior

Housing-Market / Home Improvements Aug 26, 2021 - 03:58 PM GMT

By: Submissions


Your home's exterior is the first thing visitors see when they come to your home. Home improvements such as exterior painting will give your home a remarkable appeal. Here are the reasons why you should consider painting your home's exterior.

1. Improve curb appeal

If you're looking to sell your home in the future, improving your home’s curb appeal should be a priority. Making your home's exterior appealing will attract potential clients when it's time to sell. Choosing colours for your exterior can be tricky, and you should consider colours that appeal to a vast group of people and go well with your home's landscape. For best results, be sure to work with painting experts, such as Dublin painters.

2. Enhance resale value

Besides improving curb appeal, a fresh coat of paint adds value to your home. This is because repainting your home is a low-cost investment that gives your home a new appealing look that attracts high-value home buyers who are willing to pay more to acquire your home. Instead of doing a full remodel, consider painting your home as a way to add value.

3. Protect your home against damage

Elements such as heat, wind, snow, and humidity make your home's exterior age by cracking or peeling. This may result in water infiltrating through the surface to cause damage and facilitate the growth of mold or mildew, which are health hazards. Applying a protective coating of water-proof paint protects your home against element damage and ensures that it doesn't absorb water, increasing longevity. You can also use stain-blocking paint to protect your exterior from stains and any visible wood knots.

4. It helps you identify areas that need repair

The exterior painting process involves pressure washing the walls, removing loose paint, and sanding, which helps reveal flawed areas that most homeowners aren't aware of, such as cracks or holes, rotting wood, and traces of mould. However, the advantage is that a good paint job can fix most minor issues, such as treating mould and filling holes and cracks. Paint can also protect the wood from rot.

5. Personalization

When you buy or move into a new house, you probably had no say on the paint colours, and you may want to repaint it to match your style and personality. Painting your home gives you an opportunity to match the colours of your wall and home with your furniture decor, and most importantly, your personality.

6. It's time for a fresh coat

There isn't a set time limit for when a repaint is necessary, but experts recommend that a good paint job last five to ten years. This, however, varies depending on climatic conditions, home maintenance, the past painting job, and the timings of materials such as bricks, stucco, wood siding, aluminium siding, and cement fiberboard siding. To know how long paint lasts on these materials, consult a professional painter.


Painting your home’s exterior is more than just a simple update to your house. These are the reasons why you should consider painting your home's exterior.
