“Paints that are more than five years old may suffer from hot temperatures, causing them to distort and blister. As such, they are more likely to peel off. So before it happens, protect your house,” said Kevin Bazazzadeh, real estate investor and founder of Brilliant Day Homes.
Before repainting, scrape off any chipped or cracked areas.
“Once you’re finished, apply a new coat layer to help improve your home’s curb appeal,” Bazazzadeh said.
A gallon of paint costs an average of $25 to $50 and covers about 350 square feet, according to HomeAdvisor. Expect to spend another $20 to $100 on supplies like brushes, rollers, masking paper and plastic.
