When should I paint the exterior of my home?

Are you thinking about painting your home? There are some factors that might influence your decision about painting your home. A nicely painted home gives any home a good appearance. Here are some ideas that will help you decide if it is time to paint your home.


If you live in an area with lots of sun, then paint tends to fade. Areas with cold-weather may allow the paint to last longer but snow and rain might damage the paint. So it is regularly recommended to paint your home from five to seven years.

Wall Materials

Each type of material has different durability. Some materials might need more frequent painting jobs such as wood, aluminum, and vinyl that could range from three to five years.
