When you want to update or renew any aspect of your home, we aim to provide top quality painting and amazing customer service for the most reasonable price. At Home Painters Toronto we understand that while quality is always paramount, home renovation costs can also be an important consideration.
Painting could seem to be a purely decorative change, so no one wants to spend big bucks on it. But we’ve found over the years that a top-quality, professional paint job can actually save you money in the long run. Here are a a few ways that you’ve probably never thought of that painting can save your money.
1. Painting your roof white.
Studies claim that a white roof versus a black or dark-coloured roof requires 40% less energy for cooling a house. At Home Painters Toronto we can help you choose the right type of paint for any exterior painting job, making your home more energy efficient, increasing your roof’s lifespan, and creating a stylish new look.
2. Use a quality primer.
Your walls can sometimes take a beating. Especially when it comes to the bathroom or kitchen. Specially formulated primers can help protect your walls from stains, keep moisture from seeping into walls, or control mildew growth.
Using a primer you’ll not only save money upfront because you will use less paint, but you’ll save money in the long run because you’ll have less wear and tear to deal with.
3. Paint your exterior.
Much like painting your roof you can paint your house a light colour to reflect heat away. The added benefit of painting your exterior is that paint can protect from sun, insect, or water damage, and even touch ups on peeling spots can help save you money in the long run. And touching up small defects in the exterior caulking while you’re painting can lower your heating bills.
4. Rely on the sun.
Light and bright colours will reflect natural light far better than a darkly painted room.
If you have a room with a lot of windows choose a light colour for the walls and you won’t have to rely on electric lighting during the day.
5. Upcycling and restyling.
One of the main reasons that people renovate their homes is to achieve a brand new look. Instead of spending loads of money on new furniture or decorative pieces, try upcycling older or vintage pieces Turn a vintage mirror into a cool chalkboard menu.
Ugly bulkheads and protruding chimneys can become accent features with the right paint job.
