Not many people have painting the exterior of their home in the winter on their to do list. Depending on where you live, even professional painters don’t find it ideal to paint when it’s cold outside. If you need to paint the exterior of your home, it’s better to wait for a more ideal climate than to grab your winter jacket and earmuffs to brave the cold. But painting the interior of your home during the winter months has its benefits.
Take Advantage of Time Off to Paint
We spend more time indoors during the winter months. This gives us a chance to take a closer look at the interior of our home. If you have some extra time to kill you can grab some paint samples, decide what color you want and get to work.
Faster Paint Drying & Curing Times
The summer months bring higher rates of humidity that are not ideal for the paint drying process. Winter months are generally drier and allows paint to dry faster. Crack the windows for proper ventilation.
Earlier Natural Lighting for Painting
Winter months give you more natural light during the morning hours. Not only will you feel like getting up earlier to get started, you can take advantage of the natural light. More light makes it easier to see any spot you may have missed or need extra attention. You will also work more efficiently so the job will get done faster.
Hire Painters in the Winter to Save Money
You can save some money during the winter months if you choose to hire professionals to do the job for you. It can cost up to 40% less than it would during the summer months.
Choosing a Painting Contractor
Deciding to paint your home can be overwhelming. It’s a good idea to get help from a painting company. The number of painting companies has only expanded over the years, making it hard to know which one is the most qualified. What do you need to know?
- Learn about their experience. You should find out how much experience they have. You will want to find out if they stay up to date on the latest trends, materials and techniques.
- Get estimates upfront. Always get an estimate including prep work in writing before any work starts. The estimate should be clear, and they should offer you a payment plan. This shows you that they want your business and are willing to work with you.
- What are people saying about them? It’s very easy to find out what others are saying about a particular company with today’s incredibly connected world. Check their website for reviews. Check Google, Facebook and Yelp too.
