Painting Adds Value To Your Home
(ARA) - With summer around the corner, why not increase your St. Louis
homeís curb appeal and potential resale value by painting your house?
A freshly painted house is aesthetically pleasing and creates an
inviting first impression. However, getting the painting process started
goes beyond selecting a suitable color that will provide years of
enjoyment. Painting is an investment and is your St. Louis area homeís
first line of defense against the elements. It is important to select
the most appropriate exterior paint in terms of long-lasting protection.
There are a few things when considering the type of paint to select for
Durability: Paint should withstand
harsh weather conditions without fading. Selecting a 100 percent acrylic
latex formula that resists peeling, cracking and fading in all weather
conditions is ideal.
Mildew and Algae Resistant Coating:
Itís important to select a paint that protects against both mildew and
algae. Folks tend to assume that these are the same organisms, when they
are not. Algae can grow on an inert surface because it only needs water
and sunlight to grow (it can even grow on glass), while mildew needs
organic food such as sugar from wood or oil from paint to develop. Read
labels carefully. Many paints offer only mildew protection.
St. Louis Painting: Selecting Paint For Your Home
Ease of Application: Look for a
paint that can save you time and deliver a professional-looking
appearance. An ideal solution would be a thick, one-coat paint that
delivers the same quality finish as two or more coats.
High-hiding Pure White Finish:
Select a paint that provides exceptional hiding. Hiding refers to the
paintís ability to obscure the surface over which it has been applied,
and it is achieved by the paintís pigment, binder properties and
thickness. Many paints use gray toning to achieve hide, which can create
a dull and gray finish. Choosing paint with a pure white base ensures
that you can achieve advanced hide without visible gray tinting. A
brilliant white finish achieved via hide is especially important when
painting your house white or a light color such as yellow.
Color: Choosing a color should
reflect your style and make the most of your homeís features. Begin the
selection process by thinking about what type of house you own. Certain
architectural styles demand different color palettes, tones and schemes.
Think about the color of homes that neighbor yours. Also consider the
natural elements that surround your house and how they look year-round.

great House Selling Tips Painting only won't do it. You need to choose
your paint wisely.
