The entry door assembly in a new New Jersey home is framed in painted wood, as are the two round wooden columns holding up the small front entry roof. The walls and windows are clad with vinyl. What type and frequency of exterior painting maintenance should I expect to do?
Depends on the direction of sun exposure. If your front has a southern exposure you should maintain a paint schedule on the columns of every 30 – 36 months. If the door unit gets significant sun exposure follow this time frame for the door unit also. If a different exposure add 12 months to the maintenance schedule.
