Is Spring the Best Time to Paint Your Home Exterior?

April 22, 2021

As spring approaches, homeowners and business owners are gearing up for the long-awaited warmer weather. They’re taking care of their yards, planting flowers, getting new furniture to enjoy the season outside more, and doing other outdoor activities that come with springtime. But what about painting your home’s exterior? Is it too late in the year to get exterior painting done? The answer is no! Spring is actually a great time to paint your home’s exterior because it offers some unique benefits. 

Milder Weather

Spring is an excellent time to paint. The temperatures are warmer, which means that it’s easier to do exterior painting projects like washing down surfaces and filling in cracks before the heat of summer arrives. Of course, it’s important to keep an eye out for what days might be a bit more rainy than others, but besides that, it’s the ideal time to get started. 

Better Time For Workers

Spring provides us with enough time to get the job done before summer arrives, which will make it more difficult for painting crews to work outside because of all the heat and humidity. Exterior painting companies can be booked earlier in the year than they would be during other seasons.

Protects Your Siding Before Summer

Summer brings some intense heat along with it, the kind that can do some damage to your paint and siding. It doesn’t take much time at all for the sun’s rays to bake paint onto your walls and cause them to blister, peel, fade or chip off entirely. But, if you take preventative measures in the spring, you won’t have to worry about your paint’s health in the summer. A new, fresh coat will be less susceptible to breaking under these harmful rays. It will also help reduce outside noise pollution, improve indoor air quality, and provide protection against heat in the summer months.
