What is the right time to start an exterior home painting project?by Amy Wax Amy Wax – International Color Consultant
So, you have made a decision to paint your home. It is a good thing but it is hard to decide what will be the best time to start the project. Painting the exterior of a home is challenging than the interior. And the reason is the weather. Weather is one of the most determining factors and you should know what is the best time to paint your home,
Here are few tips from a color consultant about the ideal conditions for painting your house.
The drying of the paint is related to temperature and moisture. While it is obvious you need not have to paint your home while it is raining outside, but you should also not paint when the temperature outside is either extremely cold or hot. Due to extreme temperatures, the paint may dry unevenly or may lead to clumps. Mainly, the months that fall in the middle of winter or summer are not good for painting your home. Humidity is another factor to consider. Your home may completely look dry from the curb but the porous materials like wood and mortar might be damp because of humidity. According to exterior paint colors consultants, you should always paint the exterior of your homes on days that are dry and warm so that all the surfaces you are going to paint is dry properly.
Having ruled out extreme temperatures, it is always advised to look for the suitable time for beginning a painting project. The window of suitable time for this job may differ from one place to another. Generally, the best time is early summer months and early fall months because these are months when there are minimal rain and temperature fluctuations.
While all the above factors go into your painting project, you should also make sure you have everything straight before you start. Apart from the weather, you need to ensure you are using high-quality exterior paint colors for your house. You also need to make sure you have professionals working with you on your painting project. If you are working with a color consultant, you will have a partner that will help you decide the right colors to bring vibrancy in your areas. From beginning till end, they will help you at every stage.
So, consult a professional color consultant who has many years of work experience in helping homeowners shape their dreams and be a proud owner of a beautiful home.
