Interior and Exterior Painting

16Interior Painting

Interior paint is what makes your home look clean and refreshed and gives it a welcoming atmosphere. Whether your style could be described as traditional, contemporary, modern or any other, interior paint is one of the most important keys to achieve that look.

There are four of the main reasons you should consider having your home's interior repainted.

1. Over time, interior paint begins to look more aged and shows wear and tear. Hand prints, smudges, nicks, scrapes and nail holes all make your interior paint less attractive. Although these are not threats to the foundation of your home, they are eye-catching and make the rooms seem less exceptional.

2. Cracking and peeling paint on the window sills is also a sign it is time to repaint. In most cases, this is caused by one of two possible problems. First, there is moisture coming from the window and accumulating on the sill. Second, consistent exposure to sun is causing the paint to dry and crack. Either of these could create long-term damage to the wood if they are not noticed and remedied soon.  


3. It is also a good idea to pay attention to the type of paint used in each room. For example, oil-based paint can cause issues when used on bathroom ceilings. Moisture from showers will collect on the ceiling and begin to drip down the walls leaving water marks and drip lines over time. It is best to use flat latex paint that absorbs some of that moisture. A ceiling vent is also a good way to combat this problem. Because of its durability, oil-based paints are best for areas like trim, doors, windows, crown molding and cabinets.

4. Lastly, if you plan on selling your home or having the value re-assessed, a paint job will often increase the perceived value. Simply patching nail holes and applying a fresh coat of neutral-colored paint will give your home that crisp, clean feeling that will help welcome in buyers.

The best time to paint a home exterior is when it has peeled or become blotched and faded. The first hint a house needs a fresh coat of paint is when it begins to discolor or bubble. The paint layers eventually dry out and cannot offer suitable protection from sun, wind, rain and snow to the surface underneath.

Quality paints have longer warranties and longer durability. Reliable painting contractors will help it look better than a do-it-yourself job through proper technique and tools. Taking time to have a Marietta painting contractor and do things right before it begins to deteriorate will add years to the life of the exterior paint job.

Ownership Change

After purchasing any property, homeowners like to paint the exterior of the their home to add their own personal touch and color. Most prefer painting their home exterior when they are selling the property. This is a practical strategy, as painting can give new look to a house.
