And speaking of painting jobs, with the weather still going well, homeowners are finding the exteriors of their homes in need of a refreshing repainting.

One home that just got its exterior refreshed had hardy plank siding that had faded to the point that the original paint colors could no longer be recognized. Likewise, the shingles and the natural finishes on the front entry woodwork timbers and garage doors were already severely weathered.

A&A Painting went to work to refresh and restore everything to its near original colors. A finishing coating with Cloverdale cover coat and sunfast varnish was then applied. If you view the ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures on our Facebook account (A&A Painting Ltd.), you will see the contrasting difference and the beauty of the finished repainting work.

How Often Should a House Exterior be Repainted?

There are a few signs to watch out for when a house exterior requires repainting. Cracking and chipping paint is the most obvious. But even with these signs you still need to get the opinion of a professional painting company. This is because there is no real set timeline for exterior painting since every home is different. The closest average timeline is every five to ten years, again depending on factors such as the house materials, weather, and the previous paint job.

Every surface and material will also have its repainting timeline. For instance:

  • Brick – If left unpainted, it only needs occasional cleaning; if painted, it can last 15-20 years.
  • Cement fiberboard – Lasts around 10-15 years.
  • Stucco – Lasts 5-6 years.
  • Aluminum siding – Typically lasts around 5 years.
  • Wood siding – Some 3-7 years, or every 4 years if it’s stained.
