For paint to be applied properly and evenly, your home’s exterior will need to be clean and dry. Plan to power wash, remove any flaking paint, repair loose wood or siding, and sand uneven surfaces before painting.

The overall maintenance and care of your home can also impact how long your paint job lasts. You should regularly inspect your home for signs of wear and tear, such as dampness, mold, and rot. You should also regularly pressure wash the exterior of your home and remove dirt and moss before these things start to break down the paint.
The right paint and tools are paramount to any interior or exterior paint job, and even more so in older homes. Always check with a paint professional when painting unconventional or non-drywalled surfaces. It will save you time and money in the long run.
