Most people would say that the purpose of house painting is decorative – you paint the house in order to make it look better. And it feels good to have a freshly painted house.
But more importantly, painting can actually help prevent problems from occurring in and around your home. Properly applying and scheduling house painting can keep you home in tip-top shape and will keep your total home repair costs much lower over time. Painting works to protect your home from damage by severe or ongoing weather, wind, sunshine, water, rust, corrosion, termites and other insects and/or mold.
