We bought our house last fall and the exterior is in need of some paint. It is a rather tall house, and I'm not sure how much painting a whole side of the house would cost. Could I get away with touching it up as I need to or is repainting going to be the better option?
You'd probably want to paint the entire piece of siding from obstruction to obstruction (corners, windows, doors) rather than just spot painting. If the paint is more than a few months old it will have some fade.
