How many gallons of paint does it take to cover the exterior of the White House?
Answer: The White House requires 570 gallons of paint to cover its outside surface. It had been practice from the mid-20th Century to repaint the White House every four years as part of the inaugural ceremonies. However, the progressive build-up of paint had made each successive layer less effective and more difficult to maintain. These days, the White House’s exterior is maintained with touch-ups as necessary. The last major painting of the White House’s exterior was in 1989, after the existing 40-odd layers of paint had been stripped away.
