Why repainting your home can drive up its sale price
When you are outgrowing your home or just need a bit of a change, you have two choices: renovate or relocate. However, you’ll need to do a bit of renovation on your current property to generate a successful sale with more interest and higher prices.
Paint is the most powerful renovation tool because it can modernise a home for a relatively low cost. Painting the exterior as well as the interior might only cost three figures if you do it yourself.
If you own a weatherboard home, peeled and cracked paint is unsightly and can turn potential buyers away. Worse still is patchworks of different colours and styles on the exterior. A lick of new paint – that is consistent and matches the street décor – can enhance your chances of sale and higher prices.
It’s all about perception – how aluminium respraying fits in
Many aluminium windows and doors suffer the same problem as weatherboards – to a degree. Not too long ago, aluminium windows and doors either were decorated with outdated anodised or powder coated finishes.
Anodised finishes came in one colour – an ugly “mission brown.” You can see it on many homes with old-style aluminium joinery.
Powder coating ages when exposed to years upon years of sun, rain, and sea spray, if you live near the ocean. That means the colour oxidises and corrodes. It’s not pleasant to the eye and can actually weaken the joinery.
Repainting aluminium not only makes your windows and doors look like new, it also strengthens the joinery, making it more resistant to the elements. You can choose a range of colours to compliment your home, as well as finishes. Aluminium respraying can be finished in matte, gloss, or satin.
Why not replace old aluminium joinery?
Just because your aluminium joinery is outdated don’t feel the need that you have to replace it. This is a huge inconvenience, causing you to vacate the property while it’s done, and comes with a substantial price tag which isn’t easily recovered. It can potentially blow your reno budget and leave you overcapitalised. Aluminium respraying will cost only a third of what you’d pay for replacement and will prolong the life of the joinery for the next owner (and perhaps the one after that!)
Do you or someone you know want to completely modernise their home at a fraction of cost?
SprayTech Aus professional aluminium recolouring can come in at around one-third of the cost of replacing joinery – on average. This would increase interest which leads to a higher sale price and a higher return on your investment.
