How Do You Know When It's Time to Repaint?

Home Improvement
Painting a wall, a room, or your entire home can be expensive and time-consuming. So it's not surprising that painting doesn't end up on your to-do list every often. But how do you know when it's really time to repaint in Dunwoody? In this article, you’ll find ideas on what to look for.

1. Peeling or Cracking of Paint

As paint ages, it can start to peel or crack. You may first notice these signs of deterioration at the seams. This can be where your wall and ceilings meet, the center of your ceiling, or above doors and windows. It's important to understand that some cracking and peeling can be a sign of much bigger problems. For example, if your paint is cracking all over the house, then your foundation might be the cause and repainting won't fix it.

2. The Paint Looks Chalky

Paint fades over time. It's important to understand that darker paint tends to fade faster than lighter paint. Your paint may also not fade at the same speed. For instance, the paint on a wall exposed to sunlight 24/7 may be more likely to fade than the paint inside of your closet wall.

It's not always easy to see whether your paint color is really fading and by how much. Most people just don't have a side-by-side comparison of what it looks like now and what it used to look like. You can take pictures, but you'll probably only notice big differences.

As paint gets older, you may also notice that it starts to look white or chalky. If you're at a point where you notice it often and it bothers you, then it's definitely time to repaint.

3. Enough Time Has Elapsed

There are different guidelines for how long paint lasts. Generally, kitchens and bathrooms need repainting more often due to the extra moisture and heat in these rooms. A common living space will also need repainting more often than a spare bedroom. As a general guideline, you can expect paint to last at least 4 years and possibly up to 10 years depending on the room.

Exterior paint has a similar lifespan. But it varies depending on how often you pressure wash your house, how extreme the weather is, how exposed your house is to the elements, and what your exterior wall is made of. The size of your roof overhang can also make a difference.

4. You're Selling Your Home

If you're getting ready to sell your home, you may need to repaint before you put it on the market. There's something appealing about a new paint job to buyers of all types. Painting is a relatively easy way to make your house look inviting, and it can distract from other minor flaws.

5. You're Tired of the Color

There is one instance where it's time to repaint even though the paint isn't peeling or cracking, you're not selling your home, and it hasn't been that long since it was painted last. You're simply tired of the color on your walls. If that's the case, you really don't need any other reason to repaint in Dunwoody.
