Your home is special. For years, your family gathered within its walls to celebrate holidays, happy moments and more. You can preserve your home, and the memories made there, by making improvements that can be enjoyed for many generations to come.
Give Your Home a Fresh Coat of Paint
The color of your home gives your house its unique charm and character. If your home’s exterior paint has seen better days, it might be a good idea to repaint. Paint technology has improved over the years and today many paint colors are guaranteed to last longer than ever before. Today’s paint is engineered to last for decades and many paint styles offer protection from cracking, bubbling and peeling — without harsh chemicals. It might seem wise to pay for a cheaper brand of paint, however, spending a little extra for quality paint can reduce long-term costs. Sherwin Williams offers a wide variety of paint styles and colors that are specially made for certain materials, from wood to concrete.
While many people choose to hire a professional painting service, painting the house as a family can be a wonderful bonding opportunity. Roundup the grandkids and cousins and have them sand, wash and paint the house. It’s wise to give someone the role of “supervisor.” Make sure to give this title to a family member who’s responsible and has the time to oversee the painting project. It’s best to start this project in the spring or summer. If it’s damp or wet outside the paint will not adhere correctly.
