Statistics show that painting your home is one of the best ways to increase its value and selling price. However, determining how frequently to paint it depends on several factors, such as the climate and area of the country in which you live and the quality of the paint you use. Every case is different, but here in New England a homeowner can expect their exterior painting to last between 5 and 10 years. Painting the exterior of a home can improve its overall look and add to its value. Exterior painting is your home’s first line of defense against the elements, blocking out the UV rays, rain, ice, humidity and insects that would otherwise cause rot, mold and other serious damage.
There are some simple ways to evaluate when it’s time to exterior painting the outside of a home: Depending on the harshness of the climate where you live, peeling and cracking paint can occur more frequently than in areas that are more tepid. Peeling and cracking paint can allow moisture and other harmful elements to penetrate the wood framing and foundation of your home. It is wise to inspect your home often for these signs. Another important factor that influences how long your exterior painting job will last is the quality of previous paint jobs. If there is failing paint under your current paint, this will continue to cause cracking, peeling and other unsightly problems.
The trim is usually the first part of your home’s exterior to show signs of peeling; however, if you simply paint the trim and avoid painting the siding, it is likely you may need to paint the siding in a few more years. Keep in mind that the longer you put off painting your home, the more difficult it is to paint, based on a few factors about the house itself and the construction materials. The type of materials used to construct the exterior of your home will also affect how often it will need to be painted. Wood shingles will need to be treated and repainted more often than such materials as cement fiberboard siding. The type of paint used to paint your house also effects how long the paint job lasts. Paying the extra dollars for a better can of paint will ensure that your exterior painting job keeps its color and resists the elements for longer.
