The time of year is an important element to consider when you need to paint your house. The activities of the season can impact whether or not you want to devote time to this type of project. In addition, there are some seasons and weather conditions that are less than ideal for an exterior paint job. In fact, some weather conditions can impact the paint’s ability to properly adhere to your home. The busyness of the season that is coming next can also have an impact on your decision to paint your house. The fall is a great time to paint the exterior of your house because it is a time of year that people often want a fresh start, the weather is cooperative, and it gives you time to get everything done before the holidays.
The fall provides a fresh start
If you teach or have children in school then the fall season probably feels like a fresh start - summer is over and it is time to get back into the normal routine. A new school year represents a new beginning to many people each fall. Even if you do not have children in school, the transition in the weather from summer to fall can make everything feel new once again. This feeling of a fresh start can provide you with the energy and inspiration you need to tackle a project like painting the exterior of your home. Even if you hire someone to do the painting, this type of project requires that you have the motivation and inspiration to make big decisions on elements such as exterior wall and trim colors. Take advantage of the fresh start that fall provides and freshen up the paint on your house.
The fall weather is often cooperative
Getting a high quality exterior paint job requires a certain type of weather. If it is too hot or too cold the paint will not adhere properly and will look bad once the job is complete. If there is too much moisture in the air it can impact the paint’s ability to adhere and dry properly. In this part of California, the early part of the fall provides the right type of weather for exterior paint jobs. The summer heat will start to subside in the fall and the weather will slowly start to cool. Precipitation may pick up but it will be a gradual change. If you want to do an exterior paint job the fall can provide you with ideal weather conditions to make that happen.
Painting in the fall will allow you to get it done before the holidays
November, December, and January are all busy months because they contain major holidays. If you decide to paint your house in the early fall you can have everything done before the holidays take over all of your extra time. It is also important to consider the schedule of the painting contractor you plan to hire. Holidays are busy for just about everyone so scheduling your paint project as soon as possible will help you get everything done before family shows up for the holidays.
Fall can be a great time of year to paint the exterior or interior of your home. If you are thinking about getting your home painted do not delay making a call to your painting contractor. Once the winter weather and schedule move in it will be more difficult to find a time where the conditions are ideal for painting.
