Do You Know How Much It Costs to Paint Your House's Exterior?

Experts agree that, for buildings not utilizing vinyl or fiber cement siding, a home’s exterior should be painted at least every seven years — and even more often in a harsh climate. But painting costs can add up, especially if you must repaint over and over again every few years. The cost of painting a three-bedroom home can total more than $50,000 over a twenty-year period!


But siding never needs painting and can be easily cleaned up with a garden hose. Installing siding on your house also means no more scraping and painting wood shingles, or patching cracked or split panels. That makes vinyl or fiber cement siding an attractive alternative.

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding has grown in popularity since it was first introduced in the 1960s thanks to its durability, versatility and ease of maintenance. Vinyl siding is impact-resistant, rigid and strong. Vinyl siding is also available in a broad palate of colors and many profiles, including board and batten, shakes, scallops, shingles, traditional lap, Dutch lap and beaded designs in various widths.

With the ability to withstand high winds (certified up to 110 mph or higher) and a composition that resists heat, cold and moisture, vinyl siding retains its looks over time.
