How do you know it’s time to repaint the exterior of your home? Well there are a few signs to look out for and a rough timeline for how often you should be repainting your home's exterior. Whether you are keeping up with curb appeal or prepping to sell your home the condition of your exterior paint makes a world of difference.
How often does your home’s exterior need to be repainted? Well as much as we wish that there was one definitive answer for everyone it honestly depends on a few variables. The first is the location of your home. For everyone living in sunny San Diego, California, living by the beach drastically affects your home’s exterior. Owning a home on the coast means that your exterior paint is constantly being exposed to the salty air, sand, sun, and humidity. A home in San Diego may need to be repainted as frequently as every year to about every five years.
So what are the warning signs that it’s time for a fresh coat of exterior paint? If your homes original dark paint shade has been slowly fading, appears bleached, or sun damaged it may be time to call the experts at Procoat Painting to schedule your exterior paint session. When your paint is sun damaged it will normally begin to bubble and blister or produce a chalky powder.
