The frequency of painting the exterior of your home will depend on a variety of factors such as the type of paint used, the quality of the paint job, the climate, and the condition of the surface. Generally, a paint job on the exterior of a home can last anywhere from 5-10 years, but it’s recommended to check for signs of fading, chalking, cracking or peeling paint, and general wear and tear.
It is generally recommended to have your home’s exterior painted every 5 to 7 years, but in some cases, it may need to be painted more frequently, especially if the paint is peeling or chalking, or if you live in an area with harsh weather conditions. The best way to determine when your home needs to be painted again is to have a professional painter perform a thorough inspection of the exterior and make a recommendation based on their assessment.
It’s also important to note that regular maintenance such as power washing, caulk and sealant replacement, and minor repairs can extend the life of your paint job and prevent the need for a full repaint. Therefore, it’s advisable to have a professional inspector take a look at your exterior every year, and schedule maintenance painting if needed.
