Is Your Home In Need Of A Repaint? Watch Out For These Indicators

A fresh coat of paint can make all the difference in your home – it can refresh the space, cover old damage, raise property values, and update old and outdated decor. Often having homes repainted is something people put off doing, however, it makes quite a difference.

Below are five indicators and reasons it may be time to refresh your home and repaint.

01. Fading Paint 

Over time paint can fade, this can sometimes be accelerated by sun exposure or other factors such as poor quality paint, incorrect cleaning practices, or incorrect application. Regardless, faded paint does not look as nice as it does when first applied and it is a surefire sign that it is probably time that you should update your paint. Faded paint can appear patchy or discoloured. Chances are if your paint is fading it’s been a long time since it was painted and your tastes have probably changed.

02. Cracking

Cracking paint can indicate poor quality paint, damage, incorrect application, extreme weather, or age. No matter the reason, cracking paint can offer an entry point for moisture or pests that can cause further damage to your walls. Not only this, but cracking paint looks quite unappealing. If you notice cracks in your paint it is a good idea to get it repainted properly.

03. Damaged Walls 

Damage is unfortunately an inevitable part of life, and walls often are subjected to accidental damage just from everyday life. Chips, scratches, and holes are all common occurrences. After they have been repaired it leaves the paint missing in those areas. If you notice there are many areas like this on your walls, it may be a good idea to repaint and give your walls a fresh start. If your walls are water damaged, it is a good idea to repair or replace the plaster before repainting.

04. No Longer Appeals To You 

Your walls do not to be faded or damaged to warrant a repaint, if the colours of your walls no longer appeal to you that is a good enough indicator that it could be time to repaint. Design and colour trends all change rapidly – much quicker than most people would paint their homes. Our homes should be a haven and we should feel comfortable in them, so they should be visually appealing.

05. Wanting To Sell Your Home

If it has been a while since you’ve painted and are wanting to sell your home – a fresh coat of paint could be a great idea. Fresh paint can really spruce up a space, as well as cover any old damage. It can also refresh and cover old colours that are not as popular anymore – boosting the appeal of your home to potential buyers, and potentially raising the value of your home.
