How Often Should I Paint My House?

Painting the outside of your home can be a big project, especially if you aren't sure about the proper techniques and paints to use for your home. That is why it is always best to trust the professionals at Somerset Painting! With us, you don't have to worry about a thing since we have the knowledge and experience to keep your home looking great. 

How Often Does a Home's Exterior Need to be Painted?

The length of time in between painting your home can depend on a lot of factors, such as materials used, the type of exterior, weather, and the quality of the previous paint job. 

  • If you have traditional siding, you can expect to paint your home about every 7-8 years.
  • If your home is brick, 9-10 years is the average. 
  • And if your home is aluminum, you'll almost never have to have it painted again, unless, of course, you want to. 

The longevity of the exterior paint also depends on the painters. If they do not use the proper paint, processes, and tools, then you might have to paint sooner.

Prep is Key!

The preparation for the paint job is by far the most important part. This is why choosing a high-quality team to paint your home is essential. For example, if the job is rushed and the seals are not caulked correctly, it can lead to moisture damage.

Reasons to Paint Your Home

  1. The number one reason is usually aesthetics. Paint will naturally fade over time and can impact the overall curb appeal of your home. This is especially important when trying to sell your home!
  2. Keeping up with proper maintenance is another reason to paint your home. If the exterior is not maintained, things can start to go wrong and lead to some pretty expensive repairs. Wood trim, for example, needs to be painted every so often to keep it protected from rot.
