Here are some signs that it might be time to paint your house:
Paint is peeling Paint can dry out and become brittle over time, especially in kitchens and bathrooms. Peeling paint is one of the biggest signs that it's time for a new paint job.
Caulk is cracked Caulk seals seams and gaps at windows, doors, and siding. Over time, caulk may crack, shrink, or harden, compromising the seal.
Gaps or shrinking between boards Gaps appearing between the door and window frames can mean that moisture could be seeping into your home's framing.
Gaps or shrinking wood Gaps in your wooden boards can lead to mold, mildew or dry rot.
Bubbling Bubbling is a sign that something might be happening in the siding itself. You should scrape away the old paint to examine and take care of the problem before repainting.
Paint has morphed Certain paint colors morph to form a different color due to exposure to sunlight.
Enough time has passed You don't have to wait to see signs of paint failure before you apply a coat of paint.
Other signs that it might be time to paint your house include:
