If you're not sure you're want to get an estimate, there are some simple ways to find out when your house needs to be repainted. There are some typical paint issues on homes. It will only take a walk around your residence to detect any of these issues.
You'll see the paint on your home fading on the places that receive the most sunlight. Usually, this is the west and south sides of a home. If you wipe a dark-colored rag on the house, you'll see chalking paint on the cloth. If this is happening, your wood isn't protected.
The solution is to give it a new, fresh coat of paint to protect it. It is also recommended that you give it a complete power wash before painting to get rid of the chalking.
You will find this issue in every part of your house. The first places to peel are the places that get the most moisture (door trims, garage trim, windowsills, and anyplace that snow sits).
When the paint peels off, the wood isn't protected anymore. The answer to peeling paint is to scrape off any loose paint, sand down the space to get a smooth surface, apply primer, and lastly a finish coat.
Cracking is a typical issue you'll see in the joints of the home where boards meet. Examine around window frames, door frames, and anywhere the siding connects to the trim. If you see cracks, this is where water can get under the boards and decay them from the inside out. The answer to this problem is quite easy. All you have to do is re-caulk those cracks.
If you see issues on your home, the time to paint is now. The longer you wait, the quality of work will be inadequate since the surfaces will be in poor condition. And if you are considering selling your home in the near future, and fresh paint job will make a big difference.
