6 Signs It’s Time to Repaint Your Home’s Interior

A good quality interior paint job can last for years, but even if it’s maintained well, it eventually starts to wear out. Worn paint can drastically change the look of the inside of your home. To keep your home in tip-top shape you should repaint your walls from time to time.

Repainting the interior of your home will not only improve the comfort of the home but also boosts the appearance of it.  If it’s been a while since you’ve painted your home, you may want to consider a fresh coat in your indoor living spaces.

Time for a Repaint

A professional house painter can help refurbish your walls and your home. They can tell you which areas need a fresh coat of paint. If you’re not sure if your interior paint is no longer up to par, here are a few signs that will let you know it’s time for a repaint.

1. Fading Paint

If your walls are not as vibrant as they used to be, then this is a good time for a new coat of paint. Fading occurs over time. Walls constantly exposed to sunlight fade more rapidly than walls that are in shaded areas. Fading may also occur due to low-quality paint, improper painting techniques, or chemical agents.

Darker paint shades fade faster than lighter hues, although both will fade over time. Modern-day paints feature fade-resistant technology, but even they succumb to wear and tear as the years pass by.

2. Cracking

Cracking paint can be caused by improper surface preparation, extreme cold or heat, or the age of the paint. Not only does cracking paint look unappealing, but it may also offer an entry point for pests or moisture that you do not want in your home. If there is any flaking or bubbling on the interior surfaces of your home, it’s time for a new paint job.

3. Tired of the Status Quo

Our style preferences change over time. What we loved a few years ago may no longer appeal to us. The paint color in your home says a lot about the atmosphere in the home. If you’re tired of the current color of the interior walls, repainting will update your aesthetics.

Pick and choose the colors and styles most flattering to your current décor and personal likes. If the color on your walls makes your home feel dark and gloomy, lighten it up. If you’ve always used a single color throughout your home, try mixing things up. Choose different colors for different rooms or use accent walls to keep things interesting.

4. Damaged Walls

Scuff marks, chips and cracks, holes, and missing paint take away from the aesthetics in a home. If multiple areas of damage exist throughout the home, then the walls should be repaired. Before painting walls damaged by water, you must repair or replace the drywall.

Damaged, wet drywall may lead to mold growth and an assortment of additional issues if it isn't repaired promptly. Mold is dangerous and creates potential health concerns for everyone in the home. If you notice staining on the walls, remedy the problem before repainting.

5. Selling the House

Painting a house before listing it for sale is a good investment. Paint each room in the house, depersonalizing it along the way so the new family has plenty of opportunities to make their own memories. The freshly painted walls increase the buyer's attraction so that your home sells faster.

Increased profits when the house sells is another nice benefit of interior painting. It’s a fact that painting a home in neutral colors before placing it on the market enhances the interest of buyers.

Painting is the most cost-effective way to add value to your home and make a visual change. We have had realtors say to us that you will break even with most money you invest into your home, but painting is guaranteed to bring greater value and money than what it costs you.

6. You Just Moved In

If you just bought a home, there’s a chance the paint that was applied isn’t sufficient for daily wear or may not be the color you want. A new paint job can help the home feel like yours. Even if the paint looks good, consider painting it the way you want to match your preferences and other décor.
