Ensuring that the paint job on the exterior of your home is kept up to date can have a significant impact on the appearance of your home. Sometimes, a power wash is all that you need to get rid of the grime and make your home look like new. However, every few years, your home will have to be repainted to ensure the best appearance for your building. The time span during which your home should be repainted will fluctuate depending on multiple factors.
The average amount of time between necessary paint jobs will fluctuate depending on the finish and the surface that needs to be painted. Wood walls will need to be repainted approximately every 3-7 years. One of the benefits of wood is that it can be stained rather than painted. This process is required about every 4 years. Aluminum will require repainting every 5 years, while stucco will need to be repainted every 5-6 years. Brick doesn’t need to be painted, but if it is, the paint job typically lasts 15-20 years.
The climate where the house is located will also affect how often the exterior of the home needs to be repainted. A home that is in a hot or humid climate will require repainting more often. Homes that experience harsh winters or significant bad weather will require more frequent painting.
The Previous Paint Job
The previous paint job will also impact how soon the exterior needs to be repainted. A high-quality paint job will allow for a longer time period in between necessary paint jobs. A quality paint job can be obtained through the services of a professional company.
