Professional Exterior Painting Services in Chicago

The lasting value of your exterior finish begins with prep. Because of that, being thorough is particularly important for historical home painting. As a result, our house painters completely clean the exterior walls. That includes getting rid of dirt, cobwebs, and mildew. Plus, it covers power washing.

Next, once cleaning is complete, sanding and scraping begin. When getting an older home ready for paint, preparation can take quite a bit of time. But it’s worth it. In fact, for the paint to stick properly, the surface must be clean and smooth. At this point, we would apply a high-quality primer to any raw surface. 

What Are the Benefits of Painting an Older Home?

Painting an older home can bring several benefits. First, it can improve the appearance, making the house look fresh and well-maintained. This can also increase its curb appeal and potentially raise its value. Painting can also protect the exterior from weather damage, like rain or sun, which can wear down the paint and even the structure over time. Additionally, if you use quality paint, it can act as a barrier against pests and mold, keeping your home healthier. Overall, painting is a relatively affordable way to give your older home a new lease on life, both aesthetically and functionally.

Does Restoring Paint on Older Homes in Illinois Increase Property Value?

Absolutely! Restoring the paint on older homes in Illinois can increase their value significantly. A new coat of paint can make the house look modern and inviting, which can attract more buyers and drive up the property's worth. It's a relatively simple and cost-effective way to enhance curb appeal and overall marketability.

Do Weather Conditions in Illinois Impact The Paint on Historic Homes?

Absolutely, the weather in Illinois plays a role in the condition of paint on historic homes. The heat, cold, rain, and snow can all take a toll on the exterior paint, causing it to crack, peel, or fade over time. Proper preparation, including using weather-resistant paint and conducting routine maintenance, can help protect historic home exteriors from these weather-related issues.
