The long and rainy winter has finally come to an end and the time has come to start putting together your to-do list of everything that you want to accomplish around your home. Typical spring cleaning starts with yard work and deep cleaning your home. One often overlooked area is your home’s paint.  A fresh coat of paint on your home’s exterior can be the perfect thing to start with, bringing a wide variety of benefits to you and helping your home in many different ways.

To put it simply your exterior takes a beating throughout the winter!

The winter weather can do severe damage to the exterior of your home. Most people don’t understand the wear and tear that rain, fog, sunshine, and temperature changes can bring on your exterior. The constant battering of the elements can slowly eat into the exterior of your home. The weather eats its way through your existing paint and finds its way into your siding and trim pieces. Eventually, all of this can lead to your paint cracking, blistering, flaking and peeling. Even if your exterior has held up throughout the whole winter, summer is coming with extreme heat and sunlight, bringing a whole new wave of pressures to your siding.

A paint job can find a lot of the repairs that you need to get done!

One of the great things about painting your house is that the paint prepping process can reveal a lot about the condition of your exterior. As your painter is going around your exterior, they can spot damaged parts that need to be replaced. Since you are about to paint your home, it is the perfect time to replace everything so that your new siding and trim can get a fresh coat of paint in order to seal them up. Additionally, the paint prepping process cleans up all peeling paint, and fills in all of your cracks with some fresh caulking, keeping the elements out of your home. A quality prep before your house is painted is key to a quality and long lasting paint job.

Fresh paint on your exterior can completely change the looks of your home!

A new exterior paint job can drastically change the look of your home and truly make it your own. It is the perfect time for you to choose a color combination to fully display your personality and taste. Once your home is re-painted, the fresh vibrant colors and crisp lines will completely change the look of your house for the better. It also has an added bonus of increasing the resale value of your home. A paint job can be seen as an investment for about 5-10 years.

On top of everything, it is just the perfect time!

Springtime is the perfect time to paint your home. Warmer weather and bright sunshine ensure the paint will bond to your house well. Additionally, repainting your home is part of ordinary maintenance, something you need to do over time. Warmer weather also means now is the time that your neighbors are also sprucing up their yards and making their homes look fresh again. So why not participate and make your home one of the best looking ones on the block?
