    Definitely a good idea to give any property a fresh coat of paint every few years.

    Doing so really helps in the long-term.  The more regularly you apply a fresh coat, the less time you’ll spend on preparation and repairs before painting. 

    Timber-clad buildings for example will deteriorate far more rapidly than masonry or brick buildings should the finished paintwork begin to degrade due to the elements.

    On the microscopic scale, even though the paintwork might look fine to the eye, after a couple of years you already have small perforations in the skin of the paint, allowing the elements to get into the layers beneath.

    Regular maintenance is the key to avoiding big repair bills in the future for sure.

    That’s true. The best time to paint your house is in the spring, around mid-May to early June. These are the months that have a mild and balanced temperature, at a consistent 10 degrees. This will definitely help the paint to have an even finish.

    One essential tip before doing your painting project is to clean the surface first before applying the paint. It is because dirty and greasy surfaces will easily break off when painted.
