If you just want to give your house a new look, that's one thing. However, if you are unsure on whether or not that your home needs a fresh coat of exterior paint. There is different ways to look at it, depending on the material of your homes siding.

Vinyl Siding:

  • Is the color fading?
  • Is there damage to the existing siding?
  • Is the paint looking "chalky"?

These are all indicators that it is time to seek out a professional help.

Brick Siding:

  • If there is no paint on it currently, is there cracking?
  • Is the existing paint chipping?
  • Is there staining from the above siding?

If you said yes to one or all of these reasons, it's time to get a new coat of paint on your brick siding.



If you are ever thinking about repainting your walls, but don't know how often you should do it. We suggest anywhere between three to five years. There are several things to keep in mind when you are thinking about rooms to be painted.

  • When was the last time it was painted?
  • What conditions are the walls in?
  • Is it an area that sees a lot of traffic?
  • What kind of paint was on there previously?
  • Is it getting harder and harder to clean?

If you say yes to one of more of these, odds are, you should think about painting the walls again. Do you need to wait at least three years to paint? No. If you want to paint sooner, you absolutely can. It's just what we suggest as a general rule.
