We are known for efficiently and effectively enhancing our client’s property values; however, many are still surprised by the simplicity of many of our suggestions. For most owners, the idea that a simple coat of paint could impact their property’s long-term value is hard to understand.
The most successful owners understand that even the low-cost and seemingly insignificant cosmetic changes can significantly impact a property when they add up over the years. Staying on top of the essentials like landscaping, updated decor, and fresh paint are all essential to extending and maintaining the long-term value of your building.
In this article, we will focus on the benefits of a new paint job and how this seemingly small step can help extend the life of your building as an asset.
Painting your property is an easy and affordable way to improve value and protect the property from more costly and preventable damage.
Paint Helps Protect Your Investment
Perhaps the biggest reason for a property owner to invest in regular paint jobs is also the most often overlooked by business experts. The truth is, the right paint job does a lot more than provide aesthetic appeal. By painting your property in the proper types of paint, you can add a series of benefits that help protect and reinforce your structure from a wide array of expected damages. These paint jobs can include Advanced metal painting, waterproofing, specialized treatments to prevent corrosion, sealants for woods, and much more.
By consulting the proper experts and regularly getting the appropriate paint job, your building can look better, last longer, and avoid a large amount of damage caused by common environmental issues such as insects or inclement weather.
Increase Curb Appeal and Surrounding Property Values
While it is well understood that a new paint job can help you to boost value before making a sale, what is less talked about is the fact that maintaining a regular high standard when it comes to curb appeal can have a significant impact on the health and value of your building in the long-term.
New paint jobs on both the exterior and interior will help you attract a larger pool of renters and will allow you to set a tone for the types of people you attract. These decisions, in turn, will impact how the building is perceived and the cycle perpetuates. By being proactive about appearances, you help to manifest a more positive type of customer interaction.
Several Little Decisions Add Up to Big Ones In Time
A building and its paint will be damaged simply by existing long enough. Over time nature will wear away at the exterior through sun, wind, and rain, and if you let the little bits of damage add up over time, you will suddenly be faced with much more significant issues. Damaged paint jobs will eventually evolve into more serious issues as the protective layer is stripped away. In addition to avoiding structural damage, you also want to prevent long-term diminishment to your curb appeal, which will be benign to drive out the best visitors.
Take the time to make a lot of little positive decisions because these, too, in time, will add up to big benefits.
