The Value of Paint Restoration
September 7th, 2016 3:57 PM
If your house is made of wood siding, it's going to need to be painted or re-painted sooner or later. You can get someone to do it on the cheap, but the result is often as much damage as anything since poor surface prep means a poor appearance.

Mark Hall of Professional Touch Painting in Oklahoma City says, "When painting an older home, prep is a big deal.  Surfaces need more than power washing.  You must scrape, machine sand, caulk, fill and apply primer on old siding.  And be prepared for some carpentry expenses, too.  The end result, however, is an awesome exterior, restored and prepared."

If you live in an older home, be sure to tell the appraiser when it was last painted - and tell any prospective buyers as well.  As you know, it's a significant expense.  For someone new to homes with wood siding, it's only right to let them know that every 10 to 15 years, they will be investing 20K to 25K in a new paint job.
