What’s The Lifespan Of A New Paint Job?

When painting your business, it’s natural to want to know how long your paint job will last. But, there isn’t a straight answer to this question. It will depend on wear and tear and the quality of your paint job. Below is some insight about what to expect about the longevity of your new paint job as well as a few tips on extending its lifespan to help save you time and money.


Interior paint jobs can last anywhere from 15 to 25 years if well cared for and depending on sun exposure and humidity. That said, most homeowners don’t wait that long to switch up their colours since paint offers an easy way to freshen up your space and create a completely different look and feel.

If you’re looking for a paint that’s durable, the best options are alkyd and water-based paints. Using a solid brand, a quality colour and a professional application will guarantee that your paint job lasts for many years to come.


When it comes to the exterior of your property, many variables affect the lifespan of your paint job. The top three contributors to the longevity of your paint are surface type, weather and paint type. Living in a warmer climate where your property is exposed to intense heat will cause your paint to chip and fade much faster than in a cooler climate.

A good external paint job can last anywhere from 5 to 10 years. You’ll get the best results if you paint your exterior with high-quality acrylic paint. It’s also advisable to paint in mild weather with ample time to dry.
