• As a homeowner, you my think about curb appeal often, but most homeowners think about that only when they’re getting ready to sell, more so than when they are living in the residence. You don’t have to wait until you sell to have a great looking home. Keeping up the look of your exterior paint may not be something you think about daily, but here are some tips to know when it’s time to paint your home.

    The materials used to cover the exterior of your home will dictate the frequency and need for painting your home. Your home may be covered in wood shingles, that will need to be painted every three to seven years, depending on the wear and tear on them. Newer siding won’t need to be painted as often and again, depending on the weathering, you can paint every 10 to 15 year. Professional painters will prepare the surface before painting to ensure a longer life on the new finish. Cement fiber board siding won’t need to be painted as it doesn’t chip or peel.
