Planning to paint your home exteriors and/or interiors? Keep these things in mind for a beautiful finish that will last for years.

Products like WeatherCoat Long Life 10 for the exterior walls and Berger Easy Clean Fresh for the interior walls can work wonders and keep the home looking fresh for years to come.
We will now go in-depth on how long you can expect your paint job to last and how you can increase the lifespan of paints.
How long can you expect your exterior and interior paint job to last according to experts?
You can expect your exterior paint job to last between 7 to 10 years. There are several important factors to keep in mind here, the quality of the paints and services used, regional climate conditions and the health of the walls.
If maintained well, your interior paint job will last between 5 to 10 years. Washable paints like Berger Easy Clean Fresh last longer since they offer ultimate protection and longevity.
Things to remember for a lasting exterior paint job for your home
Humidity, sunlight and rain can lead to chipping, peeling and fading.
The biggest reason that the paint will chip or show signs of dampness is not deploying proper waterproofing solutions before painting. To prevent this from happening and help extend the life of your paint, always get your walls checked for dampness and repair all leakage and dampness problems before painting the walls. Contact Berger Home Shield experts for scientific and long-lasting waterproofing solutions.
In order to extend the lifetime of your exterior paint job, you need to select the right emulsions that are made to withstand severe weather conditions.
If you are looking for a product in particular, we have the answer for you. WeatherCoat Long Life 10 is India’s most innovative exterior paint, designed using PU & Silicon Technology. It also comes with a 10-year performance warranty for your peace of mind.
Let’s now discuss which colours are better for exterior walls. Contradictory to the popular notion that darker shades are better for exterior walls, they also absorb more sunlight and fade quicker. Choosing a light colour can add years to the lifespan of your exterior paint.
Things to remember for a lasting interior paint job for your home
Interior walls typically attract a lot of dirt, dust and hand marks, especially in high traffic areas like switches and knobs, hallways and corridors. Opting for washable paints can help maintain and clean the walls without the need of repainting to hide ugly marks and stains.
If you notice that your walls are peeling or showing signs of dampness, it is important to repair the damage as quickly as possible. This will not only extend the life of your paint but will also keep your home looking clean and inviting for the long haul.
