Is It Time To Repaint Your Property?

Paint isn’t a once of project. The best paint job, depending on various factors, will last approximately 5 to 7 years. These factors might include the type of paint used, whether the walls are inside or outside, as well as the painting contractor’s abilities and skills.

Keeping your paint fresh won’t only ensure that your property looks fresh, but it will also keep your walls in great condition. Here are some signs that it’s time to paint your property.

Outdated & Fading Colours

If your property is exposed to the sun and extensive heat, your paint will start fading much quicker. UV rays cause your pigment to fade over time due to the break down of chemical bonds in the paint. Unexposed places will be significantly darker when you compare them to those affected by the sun. That’s how you know, it’s time for a fresh coat of paint.

Peeling & Cracking Paint

There’s no way around it. When your paint starts to crack or peel, you need to repaint. Peeling paint is the result of poor ventilation or a water leak and might need some special attention before getting repainted.

Mould Growth

Mould can be found in areas that are damp and not sufficiently ventilated. While paint might seem like a good idea to cover the black spots, the mould will continue to grow and resurface. First, remove the mould with a solution of water and mild detergent. Once completed, you can repaint.

It might seem like a daunting task to repaint your property every 5 years but it makes a significant difference and protects your investment. Additionally, faded and cracking paint never goes unnoticed by your guests or potential buyers.
