Is weather a factor in your area when it comes to wear and tear on exterior painting or the painting process in general? What specific weather conditions cause this?

Yes, particularly in Long Island being near the water, which tends to be windy and salt air can lead to age the painting finish quickly, especially in certain seasons. Heavy sunlight in an open area with no trees can also lead to wear & tear, plus fading of the original color.
