MAKE PAINT LAST
Here’s the most common peeling scenario for exterior paint: Over time, paint develops tiny cracks. Then moisture gets behind the paint, weakening the paint’s bond and causing peeling. Left alone, that process spreads and accelerates. For you, that means days of tedious scraping before you can repaint. But you can avoid that by touching up cracks every year. Painting spots that don’t look bad (yet) may feel like a waste of time, but it will save you major work later.
