5 Star Rating

“I rarely leave reviews, but after the exterior house painters at Millennium painted the outside of my 3-bed home this summer, I just had to. From start to finish, I was delighted with the service I received. Rocco was very good at organising the job – especially given the constraints of Covid. Costs were competitive – there were cheaper quotes but, we went based on the reviews and weren’t disappointed. And the finish is just flawless! I am so impressed with the result.”

Things to consider before painting the outside of your home

Exterior painting can be a big job. Therefore, it’s important to understand whether it’s the right time to paint your home’s exterior, how much it will cost, and how often you should be painting the exterior of your house…

Is it worth painting the exterior of your house

Is it worth painting the exterior of your home?

Deciding whether exterior house painting is right for you should be the first thing you think about before painting. Whether you want to paint the exterior of your home because of damage or to simply maintain your property, there are lots of benefits that make exterior painting worthwhile:

  • A high quality exterior paint job will boost your home’s curb appeal and value, making it easier to sell now or in the future.
  • A fresh coat of paint on the exterior of your home will help to protect the external surfaces from the elements, keeping it safe from weather damage, dust, and rot.
  • Having our residential painters decorate the outside of your house is a great chance to personalise the exterior of your home. So whether you want to try out a new paint colour or style, now is your chance.

When’s the best time of the year for exterior house painting?

The best time of the year for exterior house painting is the summer. That’s because if you paint your exterior in cold and wet conditions, the paint will not be able to fully dry and cure. As a result, if you decide to paint outside during the winter, the finish will look uneven and won’t last long. 

Therefore, you should only book exterior house painters to decorate the outside of your house between April – September when the weather is dry and warmer.

How long will it take for an exterior painter to paint the outside of your house?

The time it takes for house painters and decorators to paint the outside of your house will depend on various factors. For example, the size and condition of your home’s exterior will impact the time it takes to paint. Also, the amount of painting and decorating work you want done to your exterior and poor weather will naturally increase the time it takes to paint. As a result, it’s hard to give a specific timeframe for our trained exterior house painters in London to paint your home.

The best way to get an accurate timeframe is to get in contact with our team. Once you get in touch, we will be able to tell you exactly how much it will cost and how long it will take to paint the exterior of your house.

How often should you paint the exterior of your house?

When it comes to how often you should paint the outside of your home, there are a few obvious signs to look out for. Finding things like cracks or chipped paint in your exterior is a good indication that it’s time to hire an exterior painter and decorator.

On average, it’s a good idea to paint the exterior of your property every 7 years to keep your home in its best condition – especially if it’s a listed building that needs extra care. However, how often you need to paint the outside of your home will vary based on the material your external surfaces are made of. For example, if you have painted brickwork, you can re-paint every 15 years, while stucco typically lasts 5-6 years.
