Painting your exterior in the summer is typically considered to be best, as it’s a time when weather conditions are ideal. However, “summer” doesn’t mean anything for some people – there could still be snow on the ground! The important thing is that you get those perfect painting days and not worry about what part of the year they happen to fall into.
As summer comes to a close, we can all start getting excited for the cooler weather that is just around the corner. However, before you start celebrating too much or get your holiday decorations ready — don’t forget about one of those pesky tasks: painting! Painting in September instead of October could save an entire day’s worth of work and will help paint last longer because it won’t be baking on hot asphalt during our hottest hours. Start by cleaning off any dirt or debris from your surfaces with water so when you do begin to paint they are as clean as possible which means less time spent touching up spots later on down the line (do not wait until after sweeping leaves!) Then prime if necessary but only once per year.
Painting During Fall
Temperature fluctuations are also an important factor to consider when deciding the best time of year for exterior painting. Paint doesn’t dry well on days where temperatures vary drastically, which is a common occurrence during summer months as it can reach 105 degrees Fahrenheit but then drop down to 43 at night-time. Early fall may be another good option because daytime and nighttime temps often stay closer together than other times of the year.
Painting During Winter
As the quality of paint increases, manufacturers can produce a product that is not just more durable but has better adhesion. The outside temperature for painting doesn’t have to be as high – you can now confidently coat a house’s exterior in temps as low as 35 degrees! Northern states should call it quits around November while southern ones will be safe until December.
When painting outdoors, it is important to remember that paint will dry slower when exposed to moisture. It’s best if you can have the exterior surface completely dry before applying any coats of paint and beware of rain or snow as they could pose a problem for your new coat.
Exterior Home painting is a big job, and it’s best to have the right supplies on hand before you start. It can be difficult for homeowners who are unsure if they should paint their homes when there has been recent inclement weather. You need to do detailed checks of any surface that will be painted—if moisture is present even in the slightest, don’t paint! This holds especially true if you’ve recently experienced wet or snowy weather because water may seep into porous materials like untreated wood or brick walls which might not feel damp from just touching them but still needs time to dry out after being exposed constantly over long periods (a day at least).
