How Many Coats of Paint Do I Need to Paint My House?

Two coats will outperform one coat in terms of durability, protection, washability and getting the true color and retaining the true color. It’s pretty difficult to adequately cover a space with just one coat of paint – you are probably just setting yourself up for failure in the end. I have seen one coat of paint fail within a very, very short period of time on the exterior of homes.
