A quality paint job can last for years. However, it’ll eventually start to wear out even with proper maintenance. When that happens, it can drastically change the appearance of your home, making it look less-than-stellar. If you want your home to stay in tip-top shape, you should consider repainting your walls from time to time. But when is the right time? Read on to learn which five signs indicate it’s time for a new paint job.

Warped Siding

Not sure if you have warped siding? If your walls have an area that cannot be flattened out, that’s usually a sign of warped siding. It’s often caused by the accumulation of moisture and the area heating up in the sun. To address the problem, you’d have to prep and paint the area or replace it altogether.


Having scuff marks, chips, cracks, holes, and missing paint on your walls can negatively affect the appearance of your home. Before you can begin painting, you’ll need to fix severe damaged. Failing to do so will increase your risk of mold growth and other problems.


Peeling is often the result of sun damage and bubbles and blisters bursting open. If you fail to address it, the exposed areas will worsen over time, causing the painted surface to break down even more. Therefore, you should fix the areas before adding a fresh coat of paint to prevent further damage from occurring.


In many cases, cracking paint happens because of:

  • Improper surface preparation
  • Extreme hot or cold temperatures
  • Age of the paint

Not only does it look unsightly, but cracked paint is an entry point for unwanted pests and moisture. If you notice any flaking or bubbling on certain spaces of your home, you should consider adding a fresh coat of paint.


If your walls aren’t as vibrant as they used to be, it could be because of fading. It’s an inevitable issue that happens over time, particularly when the walls are constantly exposed to sunlight. If you’re going to repaint your walls, you should consider using modern, high-quality pain that’s long-lasting and will resist wear and tear as the years go by.
