Did You Know... Interior and Exterior Painting.
When you make the decision to paint your home, did you know that you should take into consideration the location of your home, previous paint jobs, and even the climate and weather around your residence? The surface of your home's walls is important too. For example wood siding could be painted every 3-7 years, or every four years if stained. The most common recommendation for painting your home is every five to ten years with a professional job and high quality materials. The use of each room will also determine how often you paint the interior of your home, the more the room is used, the sooner you will need to repaint it.
If you are considering painting the exterior of your home, you would also need to consider the materials that were used to construct your home and the environmental factors of the property. For example, if you have a coastal home, the exterior will be exposed to sun, hot temperatures, sea salt, and even high winds. If you have a home in the northern part of the country, your home's exterior will be exposed to cold temperatures, and if your home is in the south of United States, the hot temperatures and humid will play a factor in how often you paint the exterior of your home. In all these situations, you may need to paint the exterior every year.
