Is It Time To Paint Your Home? Here Are The Telltale Signs

Is It Time To Paint Your Home? Here Are The Telltale Signs | Purcellpro Painting | Willow Grove PA Painter Services

So it’s been a few years since you moved into your home.

You hired a Willow Grove, PA painter to paint it, and it looked great.

You couldn’t wait to host your family and friends in your beautiful new home.

But since then, it’s started to lose its luster, and you can’t quite put your finger on why.

You’ve tried accessorizing – getting rid of some of your tired old pieces and replacing them.

You’ve tried new furniture – that couch with the claw marks from your cat, or the cracked leather sitting surface.

And it helps, but only to a point.

There’s still something not quite right.

It might be time to repaint your place.

Not certain? Before you hire a house painting company in Willow Grove, PA, consider these signs that it might be time to paint your house.

1. There’s Signs Of Water

We all do our best to keep our homes dry and clean.

But despite our best efforts, it’s not always possible.

Sometimes it’s a cost-cutting construction company’s crummy craftwork that causes water damage.

Sometimes it’s the creep of mold that starts in a dark, damp corner of your basement you never noticed before.

Sometimes it’s just a burst pipe or other plumbing emergency that’s the culprit.

But whatever the reason, water damage will severely impact the quality of your paint.

Before you call in a professional painter, though, contact a mold removal and prevention specialist.

After all, if the mold is still there, not only will it be unhealthy for your family, but it will damage your fresh new paint job much more quickly.

2. Your Paint Is Fading

A faded paint job can make your home look worn and tired.

But the truth is that paint doesn’t fade overnight – in fact, it’s an ongoing process that takes years.

So if you compare your paint job today with how it looked yesterday, you won’t see much of a difference.

But if you could go back in time five years, you’ll find a completely different color.

In general, darker colors will fade more quickly than lighter ones, so be on the lookout.

As well, paint exposed to sunlight will fade more quickly.

If you’re not sure, take a look at the color behind a piece of furniture or other larger fixture in your house.

Does it look like a different color? Then it’s time for a new paint job.

3. You’re Getting Ready To Sell Your Home

When it comes time to putting a product – any product – on the market, there’s a lot of attention paid to making it look visually appealing.

Why do you think those big fancy department stores pay so much attention to their window displays?

The same is true for your home.

Whoever buys your home can paint it themselves, you might think.

And yes, of course that’s true.

But the point is to make your home as appealing as possible to potential buyers.

A fresh coat of paint might cost you in the short term, but it can increase your home’s value on the market.

4. There’s Visible Damage

This one is obvious.

Those magic eraser things can do wonders for getting rid of scuff marks on your walls, but there’s a tradeoff as well.

Essentially, they’re a very fine grit of sandpaper.

It works well for getting rid of scuffs, but it will also wear away the surface of your paint.

Use it too many times, and you’ll start to see some discoloration – that’s the layer of paint below it starting to peek through.

And of course, they don’t do anything for chips and other marks in the wall.

So if you’re seeing some issues, it might just be time to call a professional.

5. You Don’t Like The Color Anymore

This is even more obvious.

Trends come and go in wall colors, and yours might be a few years out of date, but not so dated that it’s retro and cool again.

You might have chosen your colors to go with your artwork and furniture, but as you’ve been gradually replacing them you find your wall colors no longer match.

Or, you might just be tired of looking at the same color every day.

For whatever reason, a fresh coat of paint can solve these problems.

Purcellpro Painting certainly lives up to its company name! I needed my whole interior done...walls and ceilings. Purcellpro Painting and crew were very accommodating as they were... able to squeeze my job in during a busy time of year for them! The crew was amazingly friendly as they always arrived very punctually, worked hard, and straightened up before leaving. The guys were not satisfied until I was satisfied and they took customer happiness to the extreme. Before completing the job, they did a final walk-through to ensure that they hadn't missed any spots! I would definitely use Purcellpro Painting again and would gladly recommend them!read more

I couldn't be more pleased.Frank and Rich were prompt, responsive and efficient.One of the most professional and personable contractors I've had the pleasure to meet. What a find.
