When to paint your home

Canyon Painting provides residential and commercial painting to upgrade your Cottonwood, Camp Verde or Verde Valley home or business.Is it time to paint your home? If you’re beginning to see paint chipping and wood showing through, the answer may be obvious. Since there are a number of factors that affect how long your paint will last, Canyon Painting offers some guidelines for painting your home in Cottonwood, Camp Verde and the Verde Valley.

While climate does play a role in how long your paint will last, there is a general rule of thumb for repainting the following surfaces. These time frames vary depending on how much exposure your home has to the elements, such as being in direct sunlight versus being surrounded by trees.

  • Stucco – 5 to 6 years
  • Stained Wood – every 4 years
  • Wood siding – 3 to 7 years
  • Aluminum siding – 5 years
  • Cement fiberboard siding – 10 to 15 years
  • Painted brick – 15 to 20 years

It’s a good idea to regularly inspect your home’s paint since exposure to sun and rain will cause some areas to age more quickly. Watch for the signs: mold, dampness, rodent infestation, rot, etc. Maintain your exterior by washing off dirt or anything that could damage your paint.

When you decide to repaint, remember that proper preparation and the quality of paint will affect how long your new paint will last. That is why it’s important to have a professional paint contractor handle your painting project. Canyon Painting is licensed, bonded and insured, and uses only the best quality paints.
