How Often Should You Repaint?
How often the exterior of your home needs to be repainted depends on the area where you live, the type of exterior surface your home has, and the type of paint used and prep work done previously.
Weather plays an important role in how often your home will need to be repainted. Humid summers and cold winters mean that most homes in Northern Virginia need to be repainted every five to eight years.
If you see any of the signs listed below, it’s time for a new coat of paint:
- Fading paint
- Flaking or bubbling paint, which could indicate dry rot
- Mottled paint color, which can be caused by exposure to the sun
Some of the benefits of painting your home’s exterior include the following:
- Improves the curb appeal
- Increases the lifespan of your siding
- Provides an opportunity to inspect your home for insect or termite damage
- Budget-friendly way to update the look of your home
Several factors can decrease the lifespan of your exterior paint:
- The previous coat was put over already-peeling paint
- Primer wasn’t applied
- The exterior wasn’t cleaned thoroughly before being painted
At My Greek Painter, we ensure that proper prep work is done so that your exterior paint lasts as long as possible. We clean the siding and trim thoroughly and sand or scrape away peeling paint to create a solid surface. This allows the paint to adhere to the surface and last long. We use high-quality, durable paint in the color of your choosing. We tape off windows and doorways and cover any landscaping near your home to protect it.
