Whether you’re planning to make it a permanent home or rent it out, it’s important to ensure that the condition of the house is perfect. After all, you’re making a big investment—you don’t want to have to spend extra money and waste time trying to deal with problems you could’ve foreseen!

An important step to take is to check on the exterior and interior walls of your house as that’s what your visitors’ first impression will be based on. And if you’re married, you’d want your spouse to be happy to live in a lovely house! 😉

Let’s find out what kind of signs you should be looking for:

#1 Look for signs of mould

Besides causing health issues for you and your family, mould is unsightly! So, make sure you check the walls thoroughly for mould, especially in areas that are shaded by the roof or near trees.

#2 Look out for water marks

Water marks on your walls are usually caused by a roof leak, damaged water supply pipes, and condensation in vent ducts. Another reason is because of the migration of moisture from the surface, which didn’t fully dry before you started painting. Before you make your house purchase, check for possible damages. You have to act fast, because if it gets worse and the marks begin to expand, it’ll definitely hurt your wallet!

#3 Hairline cracks on the walls

Cracks on the walls are alarming. You’d probably think, “Was there an earthquake here?!” (No).

The most common type of cracks on the wall are non-structural ones called ‘hairline cracks’. You may find them near windows and doors. Hairline cracks happen when the materials (paint and plaster) of your wall contract and expand because of temperature changes.

#4 Peeling paint

The reason for peeling paint is usually an improperly prepared surface. It’s also possible that an inferior paint brand was used on the wall, which is why it’s very important to research on your paint before buying them.

Start finding the right paint for your new house.        

If all is good and you’ve found that perfect house to start a home in, make sure to choose the right paint to breathe new life into the property—preferably a high-quality paint brand such as Nippon Paint Weatherbond which comes with rain-proof, sun-proof and has anti-fungus properties. These paints will protect your exterior walls against Malaysia’s unpredictable weather, as well as common wall problems such as fungus and peeling caused by it!
