It can be difficult to fit in an exterior paint project during the colder months of the year. There are days when the weather is not amenable to painting and you risk ending up with less than desirable results. Interior paint projects are not impacted by the temperature outside quite as much but it is still ideal to paint on days that are warm and free from precipitation. Instead of fighting with the weather and trying to find a sunny day this winter, you can start planning a spring paint project now. Tips for planning a spring paint project include: start planning early, get professional advice, and do some of the prep work in advance.
Start planning early
Now is a great time to start planning a spring paint project. The weather outside may be cold but that does not have to stop you from getting ready for the projects you want to do in the spring. A big paint project can take a fair amount of planning. You need to determine what areas you want to paint, choose the color and type of paint you will use, decide on the contractor you want to hire, and look at your options for getting the area prepped and ready for paint. All of these steps can be done before the spring arrives to help you be 100% ready on the day painting is scheduled to begin.
Get professional advice
You can bring in a professional painting contractor now to help you get ready for a spring paint project. You can get an estimate on the work you want completed and even discuss paint options. And, after you have the estimate, you can go ahead and schedule a time for the contractor to come back and paint in the spring. Getting advice from a professional will help you feel confident about your decision to have your home painted.
Do some of the prep work in advance
You can go ahead and get started on some of the prep work for your spring paint project. There is almost always some type of cleaning that needs to be done to get an area ready for painting. On the interior you can wipe down your walls with a damp cloth to remove dust, grime, and spider webs. On the exterior you can remove debris that is near your house and schedule a time to have it power washed. You can also work on making sure the space is clear enough for the painters to move around and get the job done. If a room you want painted is completely full of boxes or junk then start working now to clear it out for the painters in the spring.
It is exciting to think about all of the improvements you want to make to your home once spring arrives. If painting is on your list, follow the tips above to get ready for your spring paint project. When you are ready for your free inspection, you can schedule it with D&D Painting.
