The maintenance cycle for exterior painting would depend on the thyme of paint used for the work. If standard paints are used ie. paints that are used for internal and external work, then the maintenance cycle would be 2 years. If actual exterior quality paints are used then the maintenance cycle would be on average 5 years. The difference being standard paints can only be guaranteed externally for 12-18 months, where as external quality paints are guaranteed for up to 8 years, some products up to 10 years.
