1. Scuffed walls
Marks, dings and scuffs along walls are common over time throughout a lived in home. It is especially common in high traffic areas such as the entry way, hallways or common living spaces. When these marks begin to show and can no longer be scrubbed away during a deep clean, making necessary repairs and a simple fresh coast of paint can make the room feel new again.
2. Fading or peeling paint
A room that sees a lot of sun will see the fastest fading but every room will eventually fade as the interior paint reaches the end of its intended lifespan. Rooms that experience high humidity may begin peeling or flaking as well. These are common signs of older paint and show it is in need of an update. However, seeing these signs early on could be evidence of low quality paint. Opting for a high quality paint from a professional painter can ensure a longer lasting finish and reduce the need for repainting often.
