How Long Does an Exterior Paint Job Last in Omaha, NE

So you've made the decision to get your house painted. It's a big deal and a large investment, so doing your research is critical. And you might be wondering after all the work and time you spent exploring different colors and comparing companies, how long should an exterior paint job last? 

There are lots of insights homeowners should know when it comes to having their house painted. A long-lasting exterior paint job can be achieved when it's done well and by a team of professionals. Read on to learn more about the elements of a proper paint job done by professionals and how durable an exterior paint job should be!


How Long Should an exterior coat of paint last? 

There's not just one answer because there's a lot that comes into play. We say a good lifespan for exterior paint is typically five to 10 years. The durability of exterior paint depends on quite a bit. Climate, maintenance, prep, and the home's surface contribute to this. When your home has lots of direct sunlight, the paint will deteriorate quickly. Sometimes it can also show premature signs of aging. 

Proper prep work is critical when it comes to exterior painting (and interior), so that has a say in how long paint holds up. This is why due diligence and finding a quality painting company are vital in ensuring your home is getting a top-notch paint job. A DIY paint job for your home's exterior isn't in your home's best interest, or your wallet's. Most of the time, people don't prep correctly or at all, so the color fades, bubbles, and cracks before its time. 

Longevity will also depend on your home's surface. For instance, a brick exterior will last anywhere from eight to 17 years while stucco is about five to 12 years. Wood siding can be between three and seven years.

This will depend greatly on the size of your home as well as the materials and prep work that's needed. A quality painting company will take the time to do the correct prepping to avoid a costly and time-consuming fix later on. The weather will be a factor, too. If your home's in rough condition, there will be more involved prep work including power washing, siding replacement, and scraping.
