We take care of the house we own and live in but despite all the care, we cannot stop the wear and tear from happening. That is why time to time maintenance of its exterior and interior is essential as it not only helps to keep it beautiful but keeps its value up as well. As we all love to keep our home well maintained, we can work on keeping bathroom and kitchen updated and freshen up the paints time to time. Freshening up the wall paints not only is a cheap way to make a home look new but is also a smart investment. But, how do you know it is the time to give your painter a call in Nepal?
Here are 6 signs that appear to notify you that it is the right time to do it. Look out for them.
- Wear and tear of paint
If the paint starts peeling, cracking, and shows bubbles, it shows that paint was not applied properly or the quality of it was not good. This may also mean that mold and mildew are taking over and weakening the hold of paint. Do not ignore it. Reach to the root of the problems as it can lead to a bigger one.
- Fading Paint
- Gaps or shrinking boards
If the boards on the exterior of your home look shrunk or if there are gaps between them, have a look at it. It must be the sign of dry rot due to the moisture. Get a professional’s help and solve it.
- Cracking caulk
If the caulk on your wall is getting brittle or cracking, it means it has lost its elasticity and is time to repaint.
- It is time to paint
It is not always necessary to wait for signs of paint failures to show up to plan to refurbish a house. You can do it before huge problems start showing up and save yourself from the headache of big issues keeping your house in a perfect shape. If you haven’t painted in a long while, maybe now is the time to do it.
If you are seeing any of the above signs at your home, start taking actions.
