People hire professional painters for many reasons. Whether they need damage repaired, have just purchased a new property, or are preparing the property for rent or sale, a new coat of paint can solve a host of issues.
Let’s have a close look at the 3 most common reasons people hire professional painters.
1. Maintenance and Repairs
We’ve got some pretty harsh weather here in Queensland, and many of our homes are made of timber. The rain and sun can cause paint to blister and peel, leaving the wood beneath exposed.
Damage left unrepaired can cause serious issues, so you’ll want to keep on top of interior and exterior paint maintenance by hiring professional painters. If you’re unsure whether or not your home requires some TLC, check out our article Warning Signs House Exterior Needs Painting.
2. Newly Purchased Property
Have you recently purchased a property? Is the home’s colour scheme to your taste? Is the home’s paint clean and smooth, or stained and blistered?
Whether you want a change of colour, or to remedy damaged paint, hiring professional painters before moving in is a decision you’ll not regret. Your furniture will be out of the way, and you won’t have to deal with the lingering paint smell. Plus, when you do move in, your property will look as good as new.
If you would like both the interior and exterior of your new home repainted, we suggest prioritising the interior. Exterior painting is less disruptive, and will not require the rearranging of furniture.
3. Preparing the Property for Rent or Sale
The condition of a home’s paint can have a big impact on a potential tenant’s or buyer’s first impression. In fact, repainting a property prior to listing it for rent or sale can increase the property’s value.
Focus on repairing damage, rather than changing the colour scheme. Water damage, mould, broken plaster, and exposed building materials make a home look run down. If visible from the street, potential tenants or buyers could be put off before they even view the property.
Also inspect high traffic areas inside, such as hallways and doorways, which experience more wear and tear than the rest of the home. A new coat of paint in these areas will instantly make your property look newer.
