How Often Should You Repaint the Exterior of Your Home?

Home Design Trends Change

It’s no secret that the things that were popular a decade ago aren’t trending today. The same thing is true for exterior design. Paint colors and styles go out of fashion, even if you’ve chosen to create a neutral look. If you want the outside of your home to always be on par with the rest of the neighbourhood, you will need to be prepared to update your paint colours on a regular basis.

Follow Through with Colour Schemes

Sometimes, people are inspired to create an overall theme or colour scheme for their home. They may have a few painting ideas for the home, coordinating each room to match an overlying theme. The exterior is what sets the stage for this theme, creating a first impression. Applying a fresh coat of paint to the exterior every five years helps keep the colour vibrant.

Cover Up Damage with a Fresh Coat of Paint

While some people paint their homes due to design trend changes, others do so out of necessity. If you are noticing a lot of discoloration in a particular area of the home or see part of the paint peeling, it is likely time for a fresh coat. This doesn’t just make the home look better, it helps protect wood, metal, and other key components from some forms of damage. When you start to ignore your exterior paint, you are making the home vulnerable to rust, mold, mildew, chipping and other forms of damage.
