Top 5 reasons to invest in house painting
Have you finally decided to do something about your home’s exterior? Is it time to revive your fading or cracked stucco? Our team can help.

Why invest in house painting?
If you’re like most homeowners, your budget isn’t limitless. So, why invest in having us paint the exterior of your home?
Here are 5 reasons why you should take care of this project sooner than later and start planning your paint job.
#1. You received a letter from your HOA.
Let’s be honest: most of us only address issues with our home when something forces us to. You oil the door hinge when it starts to squeak. You replace your fire alarm’s batteries when the start to beep. And—in the case of your home’s exterior paint—most homeowners start looking into repainting their home when their HOA gives them a firm warning.
For the record, there’s nothing wrong with that! You’re acting on new information. And—while we can’t speak for every such association—most initial letters don’t carry a fine or even the threat of a fine. It’s just a notice that you need to get moving on this project.
Don’t expect the next letter a few months down the road to be as friendly as the first. If you’ve received that initial HOA letter, the time to schedule your painting project is right now.

Do you need HOA approval prior to painting?

#2. Get your home ready to list.
There’s a reason why your realtor is strongly recommending you paint your home. There’s a ton of research and data that shows that freshly painted homes sell faster and for more money.
It makes sense. Think about what exterior paint says about your home. Old, fading, and cracked stucco sends a subtle, yet strong, message that the home hasn’t been that well-cared for. Not exactly what you want to put out there in the world when you’re trying to get people to out-bid each other for your property!
In contrast, new paint does the exact opposite. It’s perfect for your home’s curb appeal. Do your realtor a favor so they can do you a bigger favor: getting the maximum offer possible on your home. Get your home repainted before you list.
#3. Improve the look of your home.
While an HOA letter or the advice of your realtor spurs many homeowners into action, there are many others who do so just because they want their home to look better.
It might happen after you arrive home from vacation. You pull onto your street and see your home for the first time in a long time. It’s then that you realize that its stucco exterior has seen better days. It’s not as vibrant as it once was. It looks washed out and faded. You’re seeing the signs your exterior needs to be painted.
There’s nothing wrong with improving how your home looks for the sake of your personal taste. After all, you’ve worked hard for your home. You have every right to take pride in the way it looks!
#4. You want to boost its value.
You don’t have to be planning to sell your home to care about its long-term value. After all, there are plenty of other reasons to invest in your property’s value beyond just what it’s worth on the market.
If you’re thinking about refinancing and need to get your house appraised, you’ll want to do everything you can to boost its curb appeal and ensure your property looks its best prior to the appraisal. A higher appraised value could help you secure a lower interest rate, reduce the points you have to pay, or help you get rid of private mortgage insurance.
Also, remember this: not every home sale is premeditated years in advance. Maybe you or your spouse gets a job offer in another city, and you need to list fast. You’ll want your house to look great so you’re ready to sell if you need to move quickly.
#5. Maintain your home’s condition.
Here in Phoenix, the exterior of your home takes a beating from the elements. First and foremost, there’s sunlight. UV radiation damages everything, and your paint is quite literally exposed to it from dawn to dusk, every single day of every single year. That causes fading in all but the most-resilient of exterior paints.
But, sunlight isn’t the only threat to your stucco. Wind and dust batter it, wearing down its paint. Woodpeckers attack it, drilling small holes into its surface that allow moisture to get into it. There’s nothing protecting your stucco from the wild world outside.
When our team repaints your home, we don’t just spray new paint onto it and then call it a day. We take the time to prepare (and repair) the stucco prior to painting. Great prep work is everything. This ensures your home’s stucco remains in great condition for many years to come.
