3 reasons to repaint your home

By Andrew Bell

As a homeowner, you want to keep your house in the best possible shape you can, and any reasonable effort on this front must include repainting the home’s interior or exterior every several years. You may not think it’s necessary, especially if you really like the look and feel of your home inside and out, but there are plenty of good reasons to get out there with a roller and brush.

Here are just a few of them:

1) It adds a layer of protection from the elements

While you may not think much about it, the paint you apply to your home’s siding — whether it’s wood, aluminium, vinyl or something else — acts as a buffer between that material and the environment, according to It protects your home’s exterior from wind, rain, debris and more that can slowly cause damage over many years.

Each type of home material has a different recommended period for how frequently you should repaint. Keeping to that schedule will go a long way toward keeping your home in the best possible shape.

2) It’s nice to change with the times

Every once in a while, you might just think it’s a good idea to repaint for the pure aesthetics of a new colour. Paint Zen suggested that if you have gone a few years without doing this, you might not even realise how much a new tone in your living room or bedroom might help you re-ignite your pride of ownership.

3) It can increase your property’s value

Finally, if you are going to be selling your home in the near future, repainting both inside and out is something most real estate experts would recommend. Choosing a nice palette of relatively neutral colours — such as greys, blues and shades of white — will help your home look its best and appeal to a broader variety of tastes in potential buyers, meaning you could get more competition. That, in turn, may help ensure a higher final sale price.
