When you think of house painting – especially interior house painting – you’d automatically assume spring and summer months would be the best time.
But did you know that house painting can also be done during the off-peak season – even in winter? Yes, we know that it may be pretty illogical to call up house painters near me during the colder months. But believe it or not, painting during the winter season has its benefits – and big ones, at that! So, when the cool, crisp air starts to hit the town, it may be the perfect time to prepare your home’s interiors for painting (and other home renovation projects).
Here’s how the winter months provide the perfect weather conditions for house painting:
Winter can deliver temperatures that are perfect for interior house painting.
If you decide to paint during the summer, it may be too hot and humid, which can lead your interior paint to suffer from specific surface problems. Painting during the spring has its challenges, too, especially when spring showers set in.
On the other hand, the winter air is cooler and less humid, providing perfect conditions for interior painting. Some painters even prefer to paint the interiors during the winter when the air is cool, and humidity is low, enabling the paint to dry and cure more naturally and consistently.
House painting jobs usually hit their peak during the spring and summer months. The higher the job demand for the painting contractors, the more difficult for you to schedule them to arrive at your home and paint.
Most painting contractors enter a slow period when the winter months roll around, which means they are more flexible and accommodate your painting schedule needs. Besides, it will be much easier and faster to get the painting job done during the winter than during the spring and summer months.
Getting the house ready for the warmer months
If you have other projects lined up for the upcoming spring or summer, scheduling an interior painting right now in the winter will free up time for exterior painting and projects done during the warmer seasons, if any. It will also allow for a more significant financial leeway and further ease of scheduling.
Even if you don’t have any pending projects for the warmer months, painting your home during the winter will free you up from the typical burdens associated with painting during the spring or summer, such as hot and humid weather and scheduling difficulties.
Painting during the winter will also get your house ready for any event in the warmer months – such as a pool party on the Fourth of July, for instance – without bothering to call up painters to come to your home.
Opportunities to local contractors
Hiring painting contractors over the winter is a big way to help your community. Your projects will help the employees’ families put their food on the table and pay their bills. Many painting companies in certain regions in California have to lay off workers during the colder months due to lack of demand. But here at Custom Painting, Inc., we work hard to ensure that our employees stay busy and get paid.
