Is It Too Cold to Get My House Painted?

As the temperatures drop it seems like people slow down on outside projects around their homes. There are a number of reasons for this change. Time consuming tasks like mowing and trimming do not have to be completed during the winter. Plants and weeds in gardens and flowerbeds often die off during the winter and minimize the amount of time that is necessary for maintenance. And the hours of daylight in the afternoon are shorter after the time change occurs. There are some outside tasks that do not need to be done – and should not be done – during the winter. You may be asking if exterior painting is one of those tasks that just should not be done in the winter. The answer is, it depends on the weather.  If you are thinking of doing an outside paint project on your house you should consider how the temperature will affect the paint. There is a range of temperatures that is ideal for painting. Painting outside of that range can leave you with poor results.
