⏩ When Is It Time to Paint My Home?

Have you taken a survey of your house lately? You might be noticing your paint is slightly less vibrant than what it was when you bought your home. Perhaps the paint is beginning to peel and you’re seeing some holes in your stucco. Maybe you’re seeing some signs of wood rot. How can you avoid further damage? The question we get asked the most is “How do we know when it’s time to paint my home?”

By the time most people come to us, their paint is already peeling, or the wood is beginning to rot from water damage. Though we can definitely fix these issues and get your home looking brand new, there are other early warning signs to pay attention to in order to minimize costs and effort.

Ideally, you want to paint your home before it starts peeling to avoid scraping, sanding, and spot priming. Walk over to the southside and westside of your home. Those are the sides of your house that typically fade first. If you see your paint is starting to fade, that’s a surefire sign it’s time to repaint before it gets costly.

In many cases, you can get away with repainting the southside and westside of your home every 4-5 years, whereas the northside and eastside needs to be touched up every 8-10 years. Think of it as an oil change for your home. If you maintain your home, you’ll avoid costly repairs in the long run. Keep your home looking newer, longer by simply paying attention to the exterior of your home.

Whether your project is a simple retouch or a full on repair and paint, give us a call! We’re happy to answer your questions and come out to provide you with a free quote.

Just wanted to put in a good word for the Pinon Painting work force. They provided excellent service in the painting of our home. An outstanding job by a group of men who were efficient, courteous, and accommodating in working around homeowners, our guests, and all of our needs. I recommend them highly for continued service to our community.
