Charles Davis, owner of Piedmont Paint & Finish, says, “One of the reasons why exterior paint jobs don't last as long as they should is because of inadequate or improper prep work. When done well, an exterior paint job on a stucco surface can last up to 10 years, while that done on wood surfaces could last between five and seven years.”

He continues, “Because our homes' exteriors are exposed to all manner of elements, it's important to give them the best chance to withstand harsh weather, pollution, ageing and damage. One of the ways to do this is to go with high quality paints. Another is to ensure the prep work is done well.”

In preparing the exterior walls for painting, any existing damage should be repaired first. For instance, there might be some dampness on the exterior walls, resulting in the growth of algae, formation of bubbles, peeling or flaking of the paint, and gradual weakening of the structure. To remedy the problem, the painting contractor should perform waterproofing treatments as required. Some civil repair work may also need to be done if the damage is extensive.

Another major issue are cracks, which can allow weeds to grow near or within them. Thus, if there are any weeds, these should be removed, and the cracks should be sealed before the actual painting is done. After the problems have been resolved, the exterior walls have to be prepared properly to allow the paint to adhere well to the surface. Applying primer and putty, and replastering may be required, including the application of paint undercoats, depending on the actual surface of the exterior walls. This is why it is essential to find a dependable painting contractor who knows how to properly prepare the walls before painting.
