Wondering why spring is one of the best times to have your home’s exterior painted? Here is a look at some of the main reasons why this beautiful season is ideal for exterior paint jobs.
Fall and Winter Seasons are Harsh on Previous Exterior Paint Jobs
The exterior of your home goes through a lot during the fall and winter months. It faces rain, sleet, hail, and the occasional snow shower. Even though it survives these problems, it doesn’t come out of it untouched.
After the fall and winter months, a home’s exterior paint job will often appear dull in color and even have some damage, such as flaking, cracking, blistering, and peeling. A spring time exterior paint job allows homeowners to brighten up their homes and repair any damage that occurred to the paint during the winter months.
Home Repairs are on the Horizon – Paint Jobs Help Spot Them
Unless you walk around your home on a regular basis to inspect it for damage, chances are you have no idea what might need to fix. Hiring a company to do an exterior paint job in the spring allows you to spot potential home repairs that need to be done before they become extremely problematic.
While a company is painting the exterior of your home, they may be able to spot areas with extensive damage. Spotting these areas early and getting them fixed could help you save hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.
The Weather is Ideal for Exterior Painting
Spring weather is ideal for exterior paint jobs. If you have your home painted in the summer, you run the risk of having temperatures that are too high, which can cause problems to the paint. If you have the home painted during the fall, you run into potential problems with low temperatures or rain.
In the Pacific Northwest, the spring months tend to have the perfect weather for exterior painting. During the day, the temperatures are above average and warm, but not too hot, while in the evenings it cools down. It does rain, but there are more days that are bright and sunny than filled with rain.
