Ask The Painter: 5 Ways Southern Painting Can Help Increase the Value of your Home

February 13, 2014

how-to-increase-home-valueAre you trying to sell your home? Are you looking for a way to upgrade your home without breaking the bank? Are you wondering which home improvement projects will have the most return on your investment? Let Southern Painting help with your renovations! Remember a clean, freshly painted home will sell quicker and bring you closer to your asking price. We understand that there are smart ways to invest in your home right now that will help increase the value without costing you a lot of money. Here are 5 things that Southern Painting can do that will raise the value of your home:

1. General Repairs

At Southern Painting, our painting contractors also have the skills to perform complex repairs in your home (these will be specifically noted on your estimate). These include replacing or repairing sheet rock, taping and texturing, removing wall paper and custom texturing, and caulking cracks along doorjambs, baseboards and ceiling crown. Installing new crown molding goes beyond that fresh coat of paint to update the home just a bit more. For older homes removing the popcorn ceiling and putting in updated texture can also be a good selling point.

2. Make over your cabinets

The kitchen is the most important room in the house to get right, and cabinets are often one of the biggest problems. You don’t always need to get your cabinets refaced or replaced to make them look presentable. If they’re scratched or look dated, a fresh coat of paint or stain can make your old cabinets look new. Southern Painting specializes in cabinet stain-to-paint conversion; stained cabinets can be primed and painted for a completely new look or re-stained to bring back their original beauty. Our craftsmen can also apply a custom glaze or faux finish to give your kitchen your own unique look.

3. Patch and paint the interior

Freshly painted rooms look clean and updated — and that spells value. A fresh coat of paint in the living room, kitchen and master bathroom — the most important rooms in the house — will especially pay off big.

The painting contractors at Southern Painting have the skill and expertise to provide you with the right interior painting solutions for your home. Our color experts understand the perception of color and will help you select neutral shades that appeal to the greatest number of people, therefore making your home more desirable.

4. Refresh the exterior paint

The condition of your home’s exterior is the key to the overall curb appeal; it’s the first thing people see when driving up and becomes the best chance for a great impression. Let Southern Painting refresh that facade with a coat of paint! Fresh exterior paint will not only preserve and protect your home’s exterior siding — the right paint color can make a dull home dazzling.

There are a number of steps required to ensure a quality exterior paint job on your home. When working with the painting contractors at Southern Painting, you can expect our Five-Step Exterior Process to give your home the protection it deserves and spiff up your curb appeal, not to mention our warranty is fully transferable.

5. Update Your Home’s Entrance

Don’t underestimate the power of the front door. Your front door serves as the transition into your home and is part of a visitor’s first impression. As a homeowner, you want the exterior door of your home to add curb appeal and accentuate your home’s style and overall design, not detract from it.

If your existing front door isn’t up to par, Southern Painting can help provide you with the perfect solution. Whether you choose a solid wood door or one with decorative stained or cut glass panels, a welcoming entrance will definitely spiff up your curb appeal and increase the value of your home.

What Homeowners Are Saying
5.0
Average Star Rating

We needed to have some exterior and interior painting done and were also on a tight schedule. Southern painting did a great job and worked with our schedule. The house looks amazing! The entire process was very easy and everyone was friendly and professional.

Absolutely phenomenal company to work with. Did a fantastic job and was very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend them to others!

I can't believe the professional care we experienced with Southern Painting! The crew was very knowledgeable, experienced and took care of our older home like it was their own.

I would definitely hire Southern Painting again. Professional, trustworthy and conscientious.
