Painting window frames: when do you do that?
How long the painting of your window frames lasts exactly depends on various factors. On average, interior window frames need to be painted every seven years.

In order to be able to enjoy your window frames for as long as possible, it is necessary to paint them once every five years. The life span of the paint on the window frames can be longer or shorter. Therefore, it is important to check your window frames on a regular basis, in order to determine whether window frame painting is necessary. Pay attention to the following points:
Are there cracks in the paint? Cracks are most likely to be visible on the lying parts of the window frame, such as the window sill.
Are there any visible damages, discolourations or traces of wear?
Is poor paint adhesion visible? You can see this when the paint starts to flake off (powdering), or when blisters become visible on the paint.
If you want to have more paint work done besides painting the window frames, such as painting an external wall, or painting your walls inside, it is wise to start with the window frames first, before you start on the walls. That way, you can easily repair any mistakes with wall paint afterwards.
