How Often Should I Paint the Exterior of My Home?

As a homeowner, it is always in your best interest to maintain your home to the best of your abilities to protect this significant investment. Many people wonder just how long they should wait between painting the exterior of their home or other real estate investments like commercial buildings.

Depending on where you live and the quality of the exterior paint used for the job, most exterior paint jobs are capable of lasting anywhere from three to seven years. In the Suwanee, Georgia area we recommend that homeowners put a fresh coat of exterior paint on their homes, on average every five years for the best results. A durable paint finish helps improve the visual appeal of your home, increases market value, and most importantly works as a barrier to protect the exterior of your home from the elements.

For many consumers, selecting the right color and type of paint for the exterior of their home can be difficult. Not surprisingly, everyone wants their home to look like a million bucks after investing in an exterior paint job! If you’re on the fence about what color or brand of exterior paint to use, working with a professional painting company can cut through the confusion fast! Painting Specialists are happy to offer advice on the best paint products for your project for long-lasting results.

Professional Exterior Painters Make the Process Stress-Free

If you’re thinking about painting the exterior of your home, there are many things to take into consideration. While you might believe that taking on the project yourself is the most economical way to paint your house, this couldn’t be further from the truth! Painting an entire home is a big job and one that requires planning and preparation to make sure it gets done right.

Further, if you don’t own the tools like ladders, scaffolding, or have experienced, trained painters to help you finish the job, there’s a greater chance that your painting project will become a time-consuming and stressful experience. But it doesn’t have to be this way! By hiring a professional exterior home painting team, you remove all of these concerns and leave the hard work to experts who understand all of the processes that need to take place to assure a beautifully finished end-product.

Another direct benefit of working with a professional painting company in the Suwanee area is that they take the time to inspect the exterior of your home first. If they notice that any part of the exterior of your home is damaged, they will let you know about it before beginning work. By addressing any issues before applying a fresh coat of paint, homeowners avoid further damages to their home.

If you live in the Suwanee, Georgia area and the time has come for you to paint the exterior of your home, we would love to make your project go easy for you!

Wow, I had no idea that an exterior paint job should be redone about every three to seven years! I just moved to a new home, and the previous owners said the last time it was painted was probably around 10 years ago! I think I will be contacting a painting company as soon as possible, I think it would look much better after that.

Thanks for explaining that you would need scaffolding and experience to complete an exterior paint job on your home in a timely manner. Since my husband and I don’t have either of those, we’ll start looking for a professional painter.

My fiance and I are splitting up and we have decided to sell the home that we had bought together a few years ago, so we need to make sure it is painted first. He told me that because I am better at choosing professional services, I should make sure that I look for a painting contractor that could come to our aid.

I’ve been wanting to have my home’s exterior repainted with Blue since I noticed that its paint is starting to fade. I agree with you that it’ll be time-consuming me if I’d do it myself since I am inexperienced and I lack the materials needed. It’s great to know that by hiring a residential painting service, other tissues of my roof will also be determined.
