Curb Appeal, Curb Appeal… You hear this topic frequently in the savvy and competitive world of home design and real estate, especially if you are in the market to sell or buy a home. For everyone, it is the first impression, and you never have a second chance at a first impression. That’s why professional home flippers have exterior painting and interior painting indelibly on their must-do list. It’s simply imperative; a non negotiable. They know they’ll get every penny back on this investment, add value and, if done correctly, quicken the sale and create multiple purchase offers. Whether you are consciously aware or not, the first thing you notice about the structure of a building is it’s paintwork; not the size, not the design but the colors and patterns that define the structure and it’s details. Most architectural features would not be noticed if it weren’t for the paintwork. It can also achieve the opposite effect by hiding the less attractive design aspects without going into highly expensive structural changes. This is especially so regarding the exterior of your home, from the framing of your windows, creating an inviting and welcoming front door & entrance, stairs, railings… you get the idea. All these areas add to the character and impression of your home’s curb appeal and initial impression of any commercial, business or retail building. The painting quality actually paints a picture of you as an individual, family or business. It is therefore highly important as a home owner or commercial property owner to ensure that the paintwork, both exterior and interior, are done well and maintained regularly.
