The lifetime of a paint job is dependant on several factors, such as the climate you live in, the exposure of the siding to the elements, and the abuse your house takes (think active children, pets, etc). If you want to determine if it’s time to paint, have a Painting Company that you trust to come out and look over your house with you. Peeling or blistering paint, excessive weathering or fading, cracks in the caulking, these are all telltale signs that the paint life is coming to an end in the next year or two. Even if you don’t see a lot of visual indicators on a 9–10-year-old paint job, it’s possible that the protective elements in the paint are starting to break down.
A thorough paint job done with high-quality paint can last for 10-15 years and maybe longer. At Weinmann Painting we stress the importance of proper preparation for painting and the use of the best quality products so that the investment you make in your home will be a long-lasting one.
