First things first, how often should you renovate your facade?

The period between each renovation largely depends on the material you opted for in the first place and the weather conditions of your region, as well as other external factors. However, according to some experts, facade repairs should be carried out once every 10 years. The lifespan of your facade is also impacted by the way you care for it.

If you want to paint your façade, you should consider a few weather factors. The spring months can bring long rainy days. It is important to wait so that the facade of your house can dry out, because painting in unpredictable spring weather can lead to poor paint application. However, if the weather is too hot, the paint may dry too quickly and leave brush marks or streaks of paint on the façade.
