How can you tell its time to paint your house?

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:

  • Damaged stucco and wood

  • Moisture stains and mold

  • Fading colors

  • Scuffed walls
