Tips from the Experts on Painting Exterior BrickApril 24, 2017
If you are considering having your residence painted, there are three yearly seasons in which it is best to have this project completed: spring, summer, and fall. That does not mean that every day will have ideal weather. Fall usually is a bit chilly and spring can be quite wet while some summer days are too humid.
Out of these three seasons, spring seems to have the best weather for exterior painting. Landscaping projects are quite commonly completed during this time of year. If you add a protective finish to your residence early in the year, you won’t have to be bothered by any distractions while laying mulch. Why else is springtime good for painting the exterior of your home?
The recommended temperature for working on a painting project is above at least 50 degrees Fahrenheit, but not too much higher. The heat can make the paint dry too quickly and poorly form.
The Season After Winter
Winter can cause havoc on homes but this is not a secret. Just because the weather has warmed up does not mean that the wear and tear will disappear. If you have the project completed earlier to renew your home’s exterior, the new paint job can protect it from the natural elements throughout the year.
During the spring, there are different temperature variations that can increase the damage left from behind from winter months. The temperature fluctuation from low to high too rapidly causes paint to expand and peel. This can lead to other issues like rotting wood. Waiting until summer to take care of these issues can make the painting job far more extensive.
Peaking the Real Estate Market
Spring is considered to be the highest peak of the year for the real estate market. If you’re selling your home and seeking to find more potential buyers, we recommend patiently waiting until the weather is warmer before attempting to revamp your home’s exterior.
Optimal Conditions in Late Spring
Early spring usually means cooler air and rain. When summer rolls around, the heat will practically smother you with assistance from humidity. These usually aren’t the best times to get an exterior painted but if you can wait until late spring, there is less moisture, like humidity or rain, and painters have more daylight time to work with. The end result is more likely to stick properly and there is less chance of adhesion failure.
Any home can be revamped with a fresh paint job. Nothing will bring you more satisfaction than having your exterior refreshed with customized colors of your choice, Exterior painting is for sure one of the most interesting projects to take on during the spring time because it provides us with a perfect combination that matches professional exterior painting requirements.
Although, there are still a few downsides. The sun may perhaps be settled more on one side of the building. There is the chance of wind stirring up debris and dirt that will stick to the paint. Rain can also come at any time during these recommended months for painting.
