Repainting 101: When and Why should I repaint?

It’s hard to know when or even why you should repaint certain rooms or areas of your house. Paint can fade over time, but if you’re around it all the time, you might not notice it fading. 

Repainting can be an easy way to add a clean, fresh look to your home. A professional painting services company will help you figure out when you need to repaint, but there are some basic guidelines to follow. 

When is it time to repaint? 

Depending on the area of your house or home, you might need to repaint sooner than later. For example, you might need to repaint the outside of your home before you repaint your kitchen. Your house is exposed to harsh weather and sunlight, which can cause fading over time. 

Any rooms or walls inside your home that get exposed to a lot of light might need touch-ups too. If you notice fading, especially with darker colors, that could mean it’s time to add a fresh coat of paint. It might be helpful to have an outside eye, like a painting services company or someone who isn’t around your home every single day. 

Another sign that your house is in need of a fresh coat is bubbles or cracks. This is especially common in various rooms of your house. While fading might be less obvious, bubbling, cracking and peeling are the sure-fire signs that your home is in need of repainting. 

Why should I repaint? 

In some cases like we’ve said, repainting can help your home look new again. In other cases, it’s better to repaint than to deal with paint that’s already starting to peel and bubble. If you’re planning on selling your home, repainting is almost a necessary step.

If you’re not sure if you should repaint, a professional painting services company can help you find and look for the signs of aging paint.
