Is Your Property In Need Of A Refresh?

A painting project is not a one-time affair. Paint jobs typically last between five and seven years, depending on a variety of factors. There are several factors to consider, including the type of paint used, whether the walls are indoors or outdoors, as well as the abilities and skills of the painting contractor.

In addition to keeping your property looking fresh, you’ll also keep your walls looking gorgeous. You may need to paint your property if you notice the following signs.

Colours That Are Outdated and Fading

Your paint will fade much faster if your property is exposed to the sun and extensive heat. Due to the breakdown of chemical bonds in the paint, UV rays cause your pigment to fade over time. When compared with those exposed to the sun, unexposed areas will have a significantly darker colour. When that happens, it’s time for a repaint.

Paint That Peels and Cracks

It’s an unavoidable fact. You should repaint your walls when the paint starts to peel or crack. When paint peels, it may be caused by poor ventilation or a leaky pipe and will need some extra attention before getting repainted.

An Increase in Mould Growth

Mould grows in damp, poorly ventilated areas. It might seem like a smart idea to paint over the black spots, but the mould will continue to grow and reappear. Start by cleaning the mould with a solution of water and mild detergent. You can repaint the wall once it is complete.

You may think that repainting your property every five years is a tedious task, but it makes a significant difference and protects your investment. Additionally, your guests and potential buyers will always notice faded or cracked paint.

You should take proper care of your property and give it the attention it deserves. Contact Sipenda Painters Pretoria today for more information or a free quote.
