Best Painting Contractor in San Luis Obispo & Surrounding Areas.
The housing market in San Luis Obispo county is amongst the most competitive in the country, with the average home selling for well above the national average. According to Consumer Reports, one of the best ways to increase and maintain the value of your home is to improve the appearance of the exterior which includes adding a coat of fresh paint.
Keeping your home or building looking modern and well taken care of will help attract potential customers or buyers. This is an important fact to consider if you’re thinking about selling your home in the near future. According to a recent study done by leading real estate database, Zillow, simply painting specific parts of your home blue before attempting to sell it is likely to earn you an additional $5,000 to the asking price.
Aside from the aesthetic benefits, maintaining fresh exterior paint is also an important step to preventing damage to your home or business. Chipped or cracked paint allows moisture to seep into the unprotected surfaces of your home and can lead to the necessity of several costly home repairs including dry rot and mold remediation. The actual process of prepping a home for new exterior paint is beneficial not only for proper adhesion of the paint but also for identifying and fixing any potential damage already existing on the building’s surface.
Taking the time to carefully inspect for damage also provides the perfect opportunity to inspect for the degradation of property caused by insects. Termites in particular are notoriously harmful to wood-based homes, especially for siding. Fortunately adding a new protective coat of paint to the exterior of buildings offers a great protectant barrier from this type of harmful damage in the future.
Fixer-uppers can be great investments. This is especially true if you’re looking to quickly update and refresh a property and then flip it back onto the market. One sure way to lose money, however, is to extend the amount of time spent paying a costly mortgage. Why not hire us to speed things up a bit?
