Every home is different, so there is no simple answer to this question. A good rule of thumb is to paint every 5–10 years. However, remember that this depends on factors such as the climate where you live, the quality of the previous paint job, and the type of surface being painted or stained.

For example:
Wood siding: every 3–7 years painted; every 4 years for stain
Aluminum siding: about 5 years
Stucco: typically lasts 5–6 years
Painted Brick: can last 15–20 years

For example:
Wood siding – every 3-7 years painted and every 4 years for stain
Aluminum siding – about 5 years
Stucco – typically lasts 5-6 years
Painted Brick – can last 15-20 years
New types of materials – need to be touched up less often; for example, cement fiberboard siding can go 10-15 years before repainting.

Cost to Paint House Exterior by Number of Stories

The number of stories plays into the painting cost due to increased surface area and higher labor costs. Accessibility and safety can become issues when house painters need to use taller ladders or scaffolding. More time is needed to complete the job for a home with multiple stories.

Cost to Paint House Exterior by Siding

The material that covers the home’s exterior may also play into the cost to paint it, since some types of siding material require more prep work, more coverage, or specialized types of paint. Wood siding and vinyl siding take paint easily and may come pre-primed, so they’re on the cheaper end of the spectrum.

Some types of metal siding and brick may be easy to paint, but they can also be more expensive depending on the finish and number of coats needed. A home with stucco exterior can also be more expensive to paint because its texture requires extensive preparation and extra materials and labor for the same coverage.

Average Exterior Painting Cost by Siding Type

The table below shows the average cost per foot to paint a home based on the type of siding it has.

Aluminum or metal$1–$4
Brick$2.50–$5
Concrete$1–$3
Exterior Foundation$1–$4
Stucco$3–$5.50

The winter weather can severely damage your home’s exterior. Most people don’t understand the wear and tear that rain, fog, sunshine, and temperature changes can bring. The weather eats through your existing paint and into your siding and trim pieces, eventually leading to paint cracking, blistering, flaking, and peeling. Even if your exterior has held up throughout the winter, summer brings extreme heat, sunlight, and a new wave of pressure to your siding.
