How Often Does the Exterior of a House Need Painting in CT?

KD Painting

The best time to paint the exterior of your house in CT is usually when it starts getting warmer out in the spring time, summer and fall. Since spring is upon us, some people might wonder; How often does the exterior of a house in CT needs to be painted? With this question in mind,  here are few consideration before deciding to paint the exterior of your house in CT:

First, you mos likely will decide to paint a house when it really needs it!  Peeling, cracking, mildew, discoloration are all signs that your home might be do for a fresh coat of paint or two. Some people try to tackle or touch up only sections of the house instead of the entire home. The downside with this is that when sections of the house begin to crack, peel, fade, etc, the rest is soon to follow. We at KD Painting, in most cases recommend having the entire house done at once instead of having it done twice. This way you can save both time and money by having everything done at one time.

In the CT area, most homes will require and new exterior paint job every 5-7 years if the job was done properly. If your painter did all the proper prep work and used a high quality exterior paint, it will most likely last longer than the average house paint job. When if comes to paint, you get what you pay for, so we always recommend high end exterior paints from Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore.

Another thing that we usually tell our customers is that the longer you put off painting the exterior of your home, the harder and more expensive the job will be. A good quality exterior paint serves as a barrier and protector, and the surface beneath will have a longer shelf life and cause you less headaches and money in the long run.
