How Ofter Do Your Interior Wall Need To Be Repainted?

Are your interior walls due for a repaint?

The question of how regularly to paint inside and outside of a property comes up many times for homeowners. However, the answer isn’t straightforward at all. In most cases, it simply depends. As a homeowner, it’s your job to be mindful of the signs that indicate that it is time to get the paintbrush out. This is especially true when it comes to wall painting, given that walls are often exposed to various things that can damage the paint.

Here’s what to consider when scheduling your home’s interior repaint.

Previous Paint

If you have your interior painted by a high-quality provider and you take care of the surfaces, the paint job can easily last ten years or more. Professionals use the highest quality paints, apply them evenly, and ensure the surface is adequately primed beforehand. In comparison, rushed DIY jobs may only last one year or so before the cracks start showing.

The Room

It’s not uncommon for homeowners to repaint rooms separately. Not only is it more manageable, but also because the timelines for repainting are often very different. Hallways are subject to more wear and tear than a home office, for example. Dining and living rooms may need repainting sooner than a bedroom, too. Even so, don’t let moving furniture and decorating with new colors deter you from maintaining each room.

Sun Damage

Sun damage will inevitably fade the paint on your walls in places and rooms that are exposed to it throughout the day. This tends to happen slowly and gradually but can damage your walls considerably in some cases.

Another reason to repaint is for purely aesthetic reasons. Perhaps you decide that you want to change things up before you necessarily need to.
