During the winter season, your home suffers a beating from the elements. The harsh weather conditions – snow, cold temperature and water tend to damage painted walls during the cold season. You may not see the extent of the damage until spring, when the snow has melted and everything looks more clearer. However, chances are, you’ll need to give your home a fresh coat of paint and make it come to life once again. Spring is a great time for a little house dressing since it’s the season of rejuvenation and replenishing. Here are some of the reasons that you should paint your home in spring.
Convenient Time For Painting
Spring is often regarded as a time of renewal, and many people are excited at this time to spruce up their home and get it ready for the summer months. Your deck or patio may have suffered from a brutal winter and spring is the time to restore your favorite recreational space. If you take care of your paint job in the spring, you will have to do very little to get your home’s exterior ready for the summer. You’ll enjoy your freshly painted home during the springtime and that will roll over into the summer when the fun-times will really get into high gear. If you don’t believe in your DIY skills, professional painters are the best option for brightening up your home. Do your homework and find a team that is reputable. Get a consultation so they can hear your concerns or vision for your project and to ensure that they are the right ones for the job.
Right Time, Right Price
The cost of painting an average home can run from $1,000 to $6,000 for a home that is between 1,500 and 2,500 square feet. However, it’s typically the area of siding and walls that paint companies provide an estimate for and not so much the home’s square footage. Still, price can be impacted by certain factors, material type and the height of your home. Why is spring a good time to paint? The price can be just right. It’s safe to say that painters do not like to do their job in the cold of winter, but come springtime, they are ready to get back to painting. Paint companies/contractors schedules may not be completely booked at this time, and while looking for new business, paint quotes tend to be competitive and you may find yourself with a great deal as companies try to beat out the competition. Also, you may be able to take advantage of spring holiday sales, like Easter sales. Whether it’s coupons or a discount, saving on cost helps to keep more money in your pocket.
Top-Quality Painters Available
Since spring is generally when painters get back in the swing of things after a long winter, the best in the business will be looking for new work. You don’t want a shoddy paint job that will leave you once again looking for a new painter to perform corrective work on a bad paint job. Do not wait until the spring season ends to book a reputable painting company or contractor because by then, you may not find a painter that has any openings for the rest of the year. It’s best to find the best quote early and schedule your paint job. That way, you’ll increase your chance of securing a painter with great skills and a solid reputation that will get your paint job done right the first time.
Spring brings much more pleasant weather that features relatively consistent mid-range temperatures that do not get too hot, or have dramatic temperature fluctuations. The ideal time to paint is when temperatures are steady and since warm and dry weather doesn’t come around until maybe June, an experienced painting contractor may opt for starting their painting in late April and May. Spring temperatures are more ideal for performing external work on the basis of comfort. Furthermore, some paints, like exterior latex paint, create its protective barrier/finish best during mild weather conditions.
There are certain barriers that a painter can run into when performing a paint project, like trees and bushes that can limit access to certain areas that need to be painted. Whether access is needed on the ground or above ground, with foliages and branches in the way, painting can become even more tedious, if not impossible. During the spring season, the leaves have not fully returned and plants aren’t blooming, which allow painters to have the access they need to perform their paint job efficiently and safely.
