The Lifespan of Exterior House Painting and What Affects It

by Bonnie Phillips on Oct 22, 2020

The lifespan of an exterior house painting could vary on many different factors. A long one is important for the full functionality of the painting as well as saving on repainting the job sooner.

The elements and weather outside place a huge role in the lifespan of the exterior house paint. Also, the paint and the surface area where the paint is applied will play a huge role in how long does the paint lasts. Others include how the job was done or was the paint properly applied or was the proper equipment used on applying the exterior house painting. Hiring a professional exterior painting contractor can offer expert services for your home.

Listed below are some other factors that help determine how the house paint would last and what affects its durability.

Preparation

Preparation is an important factor in determining the quality and the lifespan of your exterior house painting. The surface area of the house exterior should be hosed down to get any dust and dirt out of it. Then, leave it to dry before putting or applying any paint because any or the smallest amount of sand or dirt could ruin or lessen the durability of the paint. The paint is as good as the surface it is being applied to and failing to prepare it well could cause your exterior house painting to peel or be damaged as well as chip away from the surface only in a very short time.

Always remember that if there is an old paint installed, it should be scrapped down and removed. Then the wall where the old paint was applied before should be cleaned. By doing this you could avoid the de-lamination of the previous paint that will affect the newly applied younger coat of exterior paint.

Materials and Techniques

The best thing you can do to get the most out of the exterior house painting job is to really invest in the project. The paint, primers, and caulking should all be the best materials and are specifically designed for the exterior of the home with consideration of all the natural factors that affect its durability.

Picking and using the proper materials and techniques will go a long way for the paint job. Always use the compatible paint with the surface where it will be applied. Furthermore, your exterior painter should use the proper technique that could prolong its lifespan.

Unavoidable Factors

The location and the weather around the home are factors that could affect the lifespan of the exterior house painting. These factors are unavoidable because these are already a part of our everyday living. The wear and tear of the exterior house paint could also be affected by the sunlight and humidity of the area. Too much sun could cause the house exterior painting to fall or chip off. Also, take into consideration what underlying material will you use. Note that some underlying materials could shorten the life span of the exterior house painting. The proper technique should then be used on both the paint and the underlying material. The key is to choose which materials can withstand these natural elements especially for commercial painting.
