5 Ways Paint is Really a Superhero

5 Ways Paint is Really a Superhero

Paint is awesome! It can make any room look great, accent a furniture piece, or just be fun to do. We love paint! Many people think the value of paint stops at how it looks but that could not be further from the truth. Paint has as many functions as other parts of your house. Paint, in our eyes, is really the superhero of the house. Sure, paint can’t pay the bills but it has some surprising functions that give it superhero powers in our view.

Protects Against the Weather

Paint on the exterior of your house is the first line of defense against the weather. Be it sun, rain, wind, or the very, very rare chance of snow in the Treasure Coast, paint keeps moisture and the elements out of cracks in your house. When your trim or any exterior part has even the littlest hole–from a woodpecker, for example– that let moisture in, which can lead to all sorts of problems such as mold.

Reduces Dust, Stains, and Greasy Fingerprints

The right paint can keep dust and other grime from building up over time and causing damage to the paint, especially in homes with plaster walls. Plus, paint will help your cleaning process become a little less intense. You can also rest assured that any allergy sufferers in the house will have better air quality because of this too.

Increases Home Value

There is no secret that a good paint job can help increase the value of your home. In fact, according to Consumer Reports, different colors in different rooms can affect the selling price. For example, yellow in a kitchen can increase the premium by an average of $1,360 according to Zillow. Not bad for something your house needs anyway and it’s so simple to do.

Lifts Mood

Having a bad day? Looking to cheer up a friend? Hosting a party? The paint you choose can affect your mood. You may choose beige or gray because it goes with everything, but that can really make you feel down. On the other hand, a nice yellow can make you feel more perky and upbeat. Paint can have an important impact on your mood.

It Talks

No, your paint cannot warn you about ghosts or tell your dog to stop barking but it can give you early warning signs for other issues. For example, if your paint is cracking, that may mean many things. Depending on how the paint is cracking, it could mean that the caulking is cracked, or that there is a crack in the stone or brick. Your paint can help save you time and money on a bigger problem if you let it speak to you when you first notice the tiniest crack or flaking.

Paint cannot jump tall buildings in a single bound or run faster than a train. But it can be a superhero by protecting your home from the elements, reducing dust, increasing your home value, boosting your mood, and telling you about potential bigger problems.

    I moved down to Florida when I retired. What was I? I worked on homes for a living. I did a bit of everything but focused mainly on dry-wall and finishing basements. One thing that I had learned was that paint, the RIGHT paint, makes a world of difference. A fresh coat can really breathe life into a home. I am glad I found your company actually. I am looking to hire a crew to get some exterior paint done on my house. The wife and I moved in to our new home in Palm City back in January but have been putting off the paint work. Now is the time before summer sets in! I will get an estimate from your company tomorrow.

    Yes, to my view the information you have shared here is absolutely worth taking because a beautiful paint job can make all the difference in how a building i.e either old or new looks. Again a fresh coat of paint also offers large degree of benefits that simply go beyond the aesthetics. It improves the home’s curb appeal, keeps the surfaces well protected and also increases the property value. Thus, moreover I can say that it makes the ordinary home a superhero home by complimenting with the design theme.
