There’s no set timeline or schedule that everyone follows when it comes to repainting their homes. Fortunately, however, we can teach you the factors that affect how long a current paint job will last. This will help you determine if your home needs new paint. In today’s article, Masters Roofing, the leading expert in exterior painting and replacement windows in our area, explains how often you should paint your exterior.
There are several factors that can affect how long paint lasts and one of them is the surface that you’ll need to paint. For example, aluminum siding needs to be repainted about every 5 years while fiber-cement siding can go for up to 15 years before repainting. Painted brick also lasts very long. The paint can last for up to 20 years. Wood siding, on the other hand, needs to be repainted every three to seven years.
Your area’s weather also plays a big role in how long your current paint job will last. For instance, high humidity, intense storms and harsh winters can all cause a paint job to age quickly. Hot summers and direct sunlight can also cause the paint to bubble. As a local painting and siding company, we understand our region’s weather. If you need to know if your home needs to be repainted or if you need paint that will last then give us a call.
Quality of the Previous Paint Job
The quality of your previous paint job affects how long the paint will last. The type of paint used, how many coats were applied, the color used and the quality of the paint can all affect the longevity of your exterior paint. High-quality paint in lighter shades tends to last longer, particularly if they are applied in two to three coats.
