    Post How Often Should You Paint Your House?

    I'm thinking how often should I re-paint my house? Is it normal to re-paint every 5 years? Any advise & comments? Thanks!

    I would say 3 to 5 years. It also depend on the condition..

    Some good indicators that your house is ready to be repainted are:
    1. Loose peeling paint
    2. Siding joints have opened up and require caulking
    3. Siding and trim sheen level will have dulled down
    4. Siding has faded (Noticeable from the sunny sides and shady sides)

    Usually around 2-3 years, as every new coat will bring changes to your life.

    Maybe you can repaint your house when you get sick of the color.

    My Sis kids paints the wall every month, but they need to wash it off after every time.

    Humm, when did i paint my house, when i first move in that was 2 years ago.

    Did not think of painting it yet, guess because my wall do not get dirty as I do not have young children at home.

    It depends on what kind of paint you had used for painting it, usually an ordinary paint would last until 8-10 months I think it is also a factor on how you keep your house clean in order to avoid the wall paint on being damaged or ruined.
