As with so many things, the answer "depends" on local weather conditions, climate zone and paint quality. The most general answer is approximately every 7 years but that might differ if the property is located anywhere with windblown sand for example. Main advice, buy top quality paint.

This is going to read like a big dodge of your question because 1. I cannot divulge (we keep confidential) 2. and so much is contingent on site characteristics and your selections. There's a huge difference in cost based on those things.
Very little of the original house remains, we doubled the square footage, and this was a pure custom home inside the DC Metro. The total cost was over 600k and under $1 million but you could easily find this type of project costing that much and more based on the location depending on site conditions and your selections.

We're a pure custom builder and the plans are intellectual property owned by the architect so technically not for sale. This garage was part of a larger project and cost over 200k.
