How long can I expect my structures built with foam core and a overlay of cardboard to last? Do I need to use reinforcement on the inside of my structures?

I live in a semi-arid part of the U.S. with lower dew points.

If you spray your structures with a protective coating like krylon clear or dull coat this will not only help against warping but also help the inks from fading I have had paper structures for over 5 years without a problem
