Its a question that is often repeated: will painting my house add to its value? Of course, with any home improvement project the answer is often “it depends”. The same can be said of updating or changing either the interior or exterior paint on your house. A myriad of factors come into play when determining whether painting your home actually adds any value to it. If you are simply looking to improve its aesthetics, painting your house is one of the most cost-effective and dramatic changes you can make to your home. Whether it makes financial sense, again is dependent on a number of factors. A trusted and reliable Northern Colorado painting company, like M&E Painting, should be able to provide information on what makes sense and guide homeowners to make the best choice.
First, compare the cost to perceived increased value. Should the remodeling or repainting job you are taking on actually cost more than it is expected to return, you’ll need to further determine the reasons for repainting. Are you preparing to sell? With curb appeal being a plus in the quick sale of a home, repainting the exterior makes sense. If you’re not in the market and simply looking to improve your home’s look by modernizing it or bringing in your own “personality”, the value simply lies in what it means to you in having a beautiful home that you are proud to come home to. Of course, there is always the issue of good home maintenance. If it has been a number of years since either interior or exterior has been painted, the protection that a new coat of paint is worth the investment.
