Signs Your Home Interior Needs Painting
Your home is an extension of yourself. And, just like you can get up in the morning and finally notice a couple of gray hairs or some wrinkles, sometimes your home will become a little careworn without being acutely apparent.
Does your interior need painting?
Interior painting is not like exterior painting. The speed with which the interior needs to be painted depends on what happens in the home. People who have many pets or children have a hive of activity in their house! It stands to reason that painting will need to be done more frequently than the average, which is seven years.
But, the interior of a home doesn’t always need painting.
Today we’re going to talk about some of the signs that your home interior needs painting. Having a list in front of you may be confirmation of what you already suspected, or maybe the walls need a good scrub-down, but either way, it’s worth taking a look around.
Dings, dents, and damage
Whether it’s nail holes or damage from the doorknob hitting the linen closet door repeatedly, eventually, damage to your walls and doors starts to look unsightly. It happens over time and doesn’t happen as fast in some places as others, depending on the quality of the old paint, the number of coats, and prep work was done when it was applied.
Mistakes during a home paint job is another example of damage which professional painters get called in to fix quite frequently. There are great things to save money on, and then there are things which make sense to have done professionally. Painting is an example of how evident the hand of a professional has been at work.
Also, if there has been a water leak or some other form of damage in which there may be a certain amount of repair and matching to be done, you’ll be happier in the hands of a pro.
Chipping paint isn’t like the flaking paint you’ll see on a tired exterior. Nor is it the result of damage. Chipping paint is the result of time and use. Typical places to see chipping are on the extruding corners of the walls, the doorways, walls in the bath area, etc. While nothing particularly specific caused it, time and wear have done the job.
You hate the color
Remember when your son was sixteen and wanted his walls painted brown? Now that he is 24 and living in Tucson managing a cell phone repair shop, it might be time to take back his room and make it into a living space you’ll love. That brown has to go!
Sometimes, you’re just tired of the paint color, even though it isn’t anything garish or weird. That is a perfectly acceptable reason to repaint.
