You’ve heard the phrase ‘watching paint dry’, but what about after it’s dry and dated? It might seem boring, but it’s important to keep an eye on your house as its paint job ages because it could be due for a house repainting service soon. Some things to look out for include peeling and fading paint, or simply dated colour schemes.

Scalp or Chalking

An exterior surface is going to age much quicker than the interior paints, especially when exposed to the ‘four seasons in one-day’ climate of Australia. A typical symptom of your exterior walls needing new paint is chalking. You can see when this occurs when you run your hand along a wall and end up with a chalk-like substance on your hand. This is a result of the binder in the paint deteriorating from exposure to the sun. This is an inevitable occurrence, which is why we recommend house repainting your home every 5-7 years, to upkeep the crisp appearance.

Peeling Paint

Peeling paint is a clear sign that your walls need repainting. Bubbling, cracking and peeling are hard to ignore so it’s natural to want to fix it. Sometimes these problems have other factors besides age. Water vapour can gather between the structure and the paint, separating the two and causing the paint to bubble, peel and crack. Once the structure is exposed it becomes vulnerable to the elements, which is why it’s important to repaint before too much damage occurs. Once the underneath surface is damaged, a simple repaint becomes a much larger and costly job.

Mould

Fading

Fading is another inevitable sign of aged paint. Depending on the position of the wall, this may happen sooner than expected. Walls that are exposed to plenty of light are more likely to fade or discolour quicker than darker rooms. As is the exterior of a home, which is not only exposed to sunshine but also the elements of the world, all of which will contribute to the fading of the paint.
