Will painting increase the value of your home so that you can sell it for more? The answer to that question is a clear and resounding YES! A coat of fresh paint can make all the difference when attracting people to your home. Market studies consistently show that repainting your home produces a 140% return on investment. This means that spending $5,000 on a paint job is likely to increase the selling price of your house by $7,000, which is a profit of $2,000. Not only does it increase your sale price, but it also boosts your likelihood of selling at all. Fresh paint in neutral colors will attract many homebuyers. Don’t forget the baseboards and trim! Just like a lawn without edging, painting walls without the trim looks unfinished and dirty.
Some additional tips for consideration if you are planning to sell your home:
Use neutral colors. Many homeowners enjoy neutral tones such as browns, beiges, and varying light shades of green and gray. White is always a great choice for the trim. Even if the colors are not the favorite choices of the prospective buyer, he or she is likely to be impressed by the clean, stylish look, and is unlikely to be turned off.
Spend the money to do the job well. Since you stand to profit from the investment, pay what it takes to have the highest-quality materials, and hire a contractor who will leave your house in truly spectacular condition.

Believe it or not, It could be for Air Pollution.
Considering the damage Air Pollution already does to the environment and peoples health; you would not be surprised.
What are the VOCs in Paint?
You’ve probably heard the term VOC, which stands for volatile organic compounds. VOCs are chemicals that give off gas from certain materials and liquids like the paint on your walls. These chemicals hang around our homes, sometimes for years, polluting the indoor air and causing adverse health effects. They could make you feel nauseous, irritate your eyes and impact your respiratory system. They could even cause cancer or liver damage. Some people are more at risk from VOC exposure than others. For instance, those with asthma, young children and older people are more susceptible to these VOC-related problems.
Eco-Friendly Paint – Protect the air quality inside your home with zero-VOC and low-VOC paints.
Some of the advantages of low/zero-VOC paints:
1. Low-VOC paints are less toxic and cause less toxic emissions.
2. Low-VOC paints have a lower odor and less impact on the air quality, which makes them perfect for schools, hospitals and of course homes.
3. Low-VOC paints are less likely to cause allergies due to reduced toxin levels.
Zero-VOC paint contains less than 5 grams of VOCs per liter of paint. Low-VOC contains less than 200 grams of VOCs/liter. However, to comply with the Green Seal Standard, most of the manufacturers strive to get less than 50 grams of VOCs/liter.
That is why our eco-friendly painting service uses zero VOC and low VOC paint to minimize our impact on the environment and your family or staff. That means no harsh odors or fumes when you return at the end of the day to your freshly painted home or office.
