At Handyman on Purpose, we specialize in taking care of your home with our interior renovation services. It’s amazing how a fresh coat of paint can make any area look new!
Here are 5 signs your home could use a paint job.
1. Your Walls are Peeling
While not dangerous, peeling and cracked paint is unattractive. Peeling can be caused by a lot of things, including hot temperatures, which are unavoidable during the summer. It can also be caused by dry climates, too many paint layers, damage, old paint, and more.
Cracked paint is one of the most obvious signs that you need an interior renovation. And, because peeling can indicate hidden problems, you should schedule a service as soon as possible.
2. Mold or Moisture Is Present
Moisture damage requires immediate remediation, even if you can’t see it right away. Moisture tends to cause rot and mold, which, aside from causing health issues, is very unsightly. If you find moisture or mold damage in your house this summer, give our team a call.
3. The Color Is Fading
Exposure to light, heat, the elements, and simple old age can all cause the color of your paint to fade. If you’re unsure whether your paint is faded, find an old photograph or color sample. You might notice a huge difference in the vibrancy and hue of your walls, in which case it’s time to call the handyman.
While not technically caused by damage, faded paint can still lower the value of your home, so it’s especially important to fix if you’re going to sell your house in the near future.
4. Cracked Caulk
If the area where your wall meets the floor has started to crack, it’s definitely time for a paint job. Cracked caulk isn’t just a cosmetic defect; the cracks can let in moisture and bugs, causing mold and insect damage.
It’s less expensive to prevent the problem before it starts, so get your interior painting done sooner rather than later.
5. Warping Woodwork
Nothing says you need an interior painting job by our handyman services like warped woodwork, usually caused by water damage and rot.
Warped wood will need to be replaced. Our team is trained and experienced in these issues, and will be glad to help you out when you notice a problem.
