A fresh coat of paint is one of the quickest and most affordable ways to transform the look of your home. Still, the importance of repainting your home goes far beyond increasing its curb appeal. In fact, there are many reasons why you should repaint your home’s exterior. At Robo Painting, we encourage homeowners to consider repainting their Phoenix homes as a part of regular home maintenance. That way, it will continue to look nice, and the materials underneath will be protected from the elements. 


Signs You Need to Repaint the Outside of Your House

How do you know it’s time to repaint your home? Many homeowners are unsure about whether it’s time to invest in a fresh coat of paint and whether it’s worth the cost. Several telltale signs make it clear that your home’s exterior walls need a fresh coat of paint. They include:


  • Peeling and cracking paint
  • Sunspots, fading, and sun damage
  • Cracks in the caulk on your home’s exterior
  • Gaps or shrinking wood, which indicates that moisture is getting in

It’s also a good idea to paint your home’s exterior when sprucing it up to put it on the market. This could increase your home’s curb appeal and show potential buyers that you’re invested in the upkeep of your home.


The Benefits of Repainting Your House

The importance of repainting your home can’t be stated enough, and you’ll be glad you decided to invest in a fresh coat of paint. There are several benefits to painting your home — both cosmetically and in terms of functionality. They include:


  • Improved ambiance. Paint your space to set the mood that you’re looking to achieve.
  • Increase your home’s value. A fresh coat of paint can help to sell your home more quickly — and at a higher price point!
  • Improve interior air quality. Professional painters use zero or low-VOC paints that improve the air quality in your home.
  • Easily cover up wear and tear. Painting your home quickly removes scuffs and marks on the walls so they look clean and fresh.

Best of all, repainting your home is a fast, affordable, and efficient way to update the look of your home’s exterior and interior. By trusting a professional to get the job done, you can enjoy your home’s new look without having to lift a finger.


When’s the Best Time of Year to Repaint a House?

Now that you know why repainting is important, you need to determine the right time to get it done. This is, in part, dependent on your location. Paint application is best performed when the temperature outside is between 65 and 85 degrees. Because of this, spring and fall are the perfect months to tackle big paint jobs. Here, in Phoenix, the summer months are generally hot, which makes painting very difficult. When the weather is too hot, the paint on surfaces facing the sun may dry at faster rates. This can lead to inconsistent applications and even cracked paint. Instead, opt for more temperate seasons like spring, fall, and winter.
