The weather is warming up and spring is a great time to paint or stain your home’s exterior. Although you can paint anytime under the right conditions, spring is by far the best.
Why You Should Get Your House Exterior Painted/Stained In Spring
Repair, Recover, Renew
During the winter months, homes really take a beating. Snow, ice and rain puts stress on the house’s exterior and introduces moisture. Moisture can cause your paint to crack, blister, and peel off. It also enables mildew growth. Spring allows you to take care of aging or damaged paint or stain early and prevent it from getting worse. It’s always easier to repair than replace.
Early Work, Easy Management
If exterior painting/staining is done first, it’s one less project you have to worry about. If you have gardening or landscaping work to do around your house, you don’t have to worry about working around new plants or fresh mulch. It also gives you more free time to enjoy the summer months!
The Right Temperature
Moderate temperatures during spring are ideal for painting and staining as it allows the proper curing of exterior paint. On those hot days in summer, paint can dry too quickly and prevent it from forming good paint film.
The Curb Appeal
Having your home look it’s best, whether you’re looking to sell or buy, is important. Your home is an investment and the best investments bring high return on little cost. Painting your home increases the home’s value tremendously and a newly painted/stained home interests potential buyers. For those not looking to sell or buy, nothing feels better than a new looking home for a new summer season!
