As professional painting Gold Coast Company, one of the most common questions asked by our clients is, “For how long an exterior paint job last?” This is a very obvious question when you spending handsome amount of money on a new exterior paint job, you want to know for how long your home will look this appealing and amazing. There are several factors that decide the longevity of an exterior paint job, like the type of surface, the quality of the paint and the skill of the residential painting Gold Coast expert.
In most of the locations, the greatest threat to an exterior paint job is UV rays from the sun. The ultraviolet rays break down the paint on homes here in Gold Coast, causing it to eventually fade, chalk, wear and crack. On a stucco surface, professionally applied coat of paint can last a decade. However, wood surfaces deteriorate more rapidly, decreasing an expected lifespan of 5-7 years. In order to get the best services from your paint job, quality is an important thing to consider.
Most importantly, the quality of paint you use for residential painting Gold Coast will ensure an enduring beauty and protection of the exterior of your home. Cheap paints and primers have fewer of the elements that cause paint to stick to the surface firmly and hold color. In other words, cheaper paints are more expected to fade and peel. So ensure you are using quality primers and paints. You should discuss with your painting contractor about the type of paint they will be using on your home.
Another crucial factor that decides the lifespan of your exterior painting job is the experience of your professional residential home painter. If a painter takes sufficient time in surface preparation, like scraping, filling, repairing, priming, the exterior paint job will last much longer. In addition, a knowledgeable painting company will be able to tell you if the exterior of your home will need one or two coats of paint. In general, two coats of paint are applied as they give longer-lasting results.
