You can have your home’s interior painted any day of the year, but it’s a different matter when it’s the exterior. Instead of adjusting the temperature and humidity to suit the paint job (like you would inside your home), you’ll need to adjust the project around external conditions. This means picking a good season to get started on your exterior painting. But is fall the best time for it?
Yes, Actually It Is
Paint will have trouble adhering to your home’s exterior and might roll off the surface when it’s too cold outside. On the other hand, hot weather can prematurely cure the paint, causing it to dry too quickly. That’s why early fall is the best time to have your home’s exterior painted: the temperature is moderate and more consistent. Still, you’ll want to consider some essentials into account when investing in an exterior paint job. You should, for example:
1. Check the weather forecast. If there’s a chance of downpour, try to schedule the exterior painting job on a dry day.
2. Avoid windy days. A little cool breeze can be refreshing, but having your home exterior painted when it’s windy out can result in overspray. The last thing you want is to get paint everywhere on your property – from your outdoor furniture and plants to your windows and doors.
3. Don’t take the DIY route. Painting your home looks easy on paper, but it will actually require experience and precise workmanship to get satisfactory results. If you want a lovely, smooth and consistent coat to your home’s exterior, it’s still a better idea to hire a reliable local painting company for the job
