House Painting Pleasanton - 5 Reasons to Paint Your HouseHomeowners have their own reasons for house painting in Pleasanton. However, since homes provide us comfort, protection and privacy, it is fitting that their condition and appearance be maintained.

Here are the top five reasons to paint your house:

1. Increase resale value – If you plan to put up your house on the resale market in the future, it is recommended that you prepare its appearance. Painting your home will give you a better chance of a quicker sale. A professional-looking finish will help sell your home quickly, so hiring a professional to do the work makes sense. A professional paint job will increase the resale value of your home, as well as possibly edge out the competition. Even making touch-ups on the trim and frame of your home can ultimately help increase your home's resale value.

2. Your home's exterior has worn out – This may be particularly true if your home has been standing for a long time and hasn't seen a paintbrush for years. The paint job on your home's exterior will eventually become worn out.

Weather conditions are mostly the reason why your exterior paint job begins to lose its appearance and quality. Moisture from rain, snow, ice, and high humidity can adversely affect your paint job. The usual problems occur when the paint is affected by moisture. These problems include swelling paint, blistering, cracking, peeling, and flaking, as well as moisture encouraging the growth of mold and mildew.

Exposure to sunlight will also result in additional problems for your exterior paint. It causes the paint to fade, as well as weakening its protective properties due to the sun's ultraviolet rays which destroy the paint's binder. As the binder breaks down, pigment is discharged through chalking which can be washed away during rain showers.

Unpredictable weather conditions can also cause the surface to undergo dramatic physical changes. When wood expands or contracts due to these conditions, it can negatively affect the paint, especially if the paint lacks flexibility.

Painting will protect the siding from the weather's damaging effects, especially when it's properly applied. This will also help you save money on more expensive repairs.

3. Increase your home's curb appeal
Sometimes we want to change our home's look periodically to keep it looking brand-new. Your choice of colors will add a touch of your own personality and preference, as long as they're sensibly applied. Fresh paint can also make your home look better and increase its curb appeal.

4. Improved air quality
Painting your home regularly, as well as using a good paint, will help improve the air quality of your home. Good quality paint will help keep dust at a minimum, reduce air pollutants as well as minimize the growth of mold and mildew which are caused by moisture.

When air quality is an utmost concern for you, especially if you and/or your family members suffer respiratory conditions such as asthma, use "green paints" available today. They are devoid of toxic chemicals and are made of natural ingredients such as milk, citrus, clay and linseed oil. It is also wise to buy paints that are totally VOC-free.

5. Affordable way to renovate your home
When you want to renovate your home but you don't have much money to spare, a paint job will often do the trick! A simple paint job can dramatically change the look and feel of your home without having to spend thousands of dollars or pulling out walls.

It is best to decide on your reasons for painting your home. Once you are sure of what they are and you want a flawless painting job, hire a professional contractor to do house painting in Pleasanton rather than doing the job by yourself.
