Love Gray Homes? This Exterior Painting Project in Piedmont, CA, Is for You
The value of well-chosen and applied exterior paint is multifaceted.
On one hand, the thorough inspection, repairs, and preparation that a high-end paint job provides ensures that your home’s exterior surfaces are well-protected. UV rays are blocked, moisture is locked outside, and even pests (like ants and termites) find a closed door.
Beautiful exterior paint also provides essential curb appeal, perfect for your enjoyment every day as you come and go, but also for long-term value. Prospective buyers love attractive finishes; living proof that the home has been cared for and preserved.
So, how can you be sure that your painting project delivers maximum value?
3 Attributes of a High-Value Exterior Painting Project
#1 Invest in Craftsmanship
A cheap bid from a painter may seem appealing, but you do get what you pay for. Low prices often stem from cut corners, flimsy products, or skipped/minimized surface preparation. These all spell disaster for your return on investment.
#2 Premium Paint Products
Color retention, lifespan, and durability all increase as you choose a better product. It’s worth the initial investment! You should feel comfortable asking your professional painting company what products they recommend, and why.
#3 Pick the Right Color
Stylish, neutral exterior paint colors tend to yield the highest value. It’s important to pick a color you love, first and foremost, but it’s also helpful (especially if your home is going on the market soon) to select a color that has universal appeal. And, one that blends well with the neighborhood.
