How Often Should a Surrey Home Exterior Be Painted?

A home exterior needs repainting on a regular basis. How often the exterior needs to be repainted depends on several factors including how well the house was painted the last time and the area climate.

In Surrey, British Columbia, which has a mild oceanic climate, home exteriors wear fairly quickly due to wind, rain, and the salt air from the sea. In this area, a home would need to be repainted every five to ten years in part because we have so much rain during the rainy season.

Signs the Home Needs Repainting

If you are wondering if your Surrey home needs repainting, there are a few signs to look for:

  • Cracking, peeling, chipping or flaking paint
  • Fading paint
  • Paint that appears to be different colours
  • Paint that is missing in some areas

New paint on the exterior protects the home from outside elements. The paint is actually an important part of the building envelope. In addition, a freshly painted exterior gives you great curb appeal.

Exterior paint protects the home from mold, dry rot, and the wear and tear of wood siding and wood trim. That is why a home in an area like Surrey likely needs new exterior paint more often than in areas with less rainfall or farther from the ocean.

If you are considering selling your Surrey home, then new exterior paint would be a great idea to help with your property value. Remember that you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
