How often should I need to perform a house repainting service– it’s a concerning question to most of the Pakenham residents. Before answering the question, we thought we would do some research to find out what is generally recommended before giving our verdict. The answer can vary greatly from 2 to 15 years and depends on several factors, as you have probably already guessed.

Here in this blog, we will answer this question based on what it is you want to paint and where it is located. Our focus, for this blog, will be on residential houses and apartments. In which case, the question should consider external or interior surfaces. We will cover both.

Firstly, we will cover the house interior painting. We need to consider factors such as the amount of moisture in a room. Clearly, bathrooms and laundries will be exposed to more moisture and will need to be painted and maintained more frequently.


Due to humidity that is often prevalent in a bathroom, we recommend painting every 3-5 years. Good ventilation will let some of the humidity escape and extend the time between painting as will mould-resistant paint. Painting Pros are experts in the application of mould resistant paint.  Ask us about it


The main factor here is children and the number of occupants in the home.  Normally internal walls need repainting every 5-10 years.  However, if you have young children consider painting every 2-5 years.

As A General Study The Following Information Can Be Quite Useful:

  • Paint on weatherboard or fibro can last up to 15 years
  • Paint on timber will last up to 10 years
  • Paint on render walls varies dramatically based on the painter. If applied professionally, paint can last up to 10 years. However, much less if not applied properly. This is where professionals house repainting service providers in Pakenham like Unistar Painting really marks a difference.
  • Stained and/or clear finished timber needs to be redone every 2-5 years.

Environmental Considerations:

  • Full sunlight will reduce the longevity by half

If you live near the water, especially the ocean, consider repainting every 2-3.  Ask us about the use of high-quality marine-grade paints and maintenance to reduce salt build-up in these circumstances.
