SPRING PAINTING TO REFRESH YOUR HOME
When it comes to painting the exterior of your home, the weather is quite important. Paint requires special conditions to dry effectively due to its chemical composition. Warm, dry days are ideal. If it’s raining or very humid outside, your paint may not dry correctly or may take much longer to dry. Spring weather is generally mild in most climates, giving it a great season to paint the outside of your home. It’s neither too hot nor too chilly, and you’re more likely to find some sunny and dry days at this time of year.
REFRESHING YOUR HOME AND SPRING CLEANING
There’s something about the season that makes us want to shake things up a little. Typically, this takes the shape of a spring cleaning on the inside of your home. However, the outside of your house needs some attention as well! Continue the momentum by taking a look at the outside of your home. If there is a lot of filth, it may be time to give it a good cleaning, either by soft washing or pressure washing.
Before you begin, make a note of any chipping, peeling, or other damage that may occur over time. If you observe any of these telltale indications, it’s definitely time to repaint your home. If that’s the case, it’s a good idea to employ experienced painters to handle the job for you. When you hire professional painters (such as the crew at Bergen Rockland Painters), they can complete the job considerably faster and will even do the prep work. It’s a big-time saver!
EXTERIOR WEATHER DAMAGE
Depending on where you reside, your home may have just spent the winter months withstanding some very brutal winter weather. Even if you live in a gentler area, there’s a strong chance your home is displaying indications of weather damage. Dirt, moss, salt and sand residue, wind, rain, and snow can all wear away the surface of your home. Temperature variations can also play an effect.
At the start of spring, it’s always a good idea to inspect the outside of your home for any signs of damage. Even if it isn’t quite time for a full exterior paint job, there is almost certainly some touch-up work to be done to keep your property in good condition.
GET YOUR HOME READY FOR SUMMER
You’ll naturally spend more time outside when the weather warms and the days lengthen. Naturally, you want your outside space to feel as warm and welcome as the interior. Spring is the ideal time to tidy up your yard and prepare it for guests.
If your deck is looking a little drab, now is a wonderful time to consider getting it painted or stained to brighten things up. You may also want to repaint your fence, latticework, or any other features in your yard that need to be updated.
BOOK PROFESSIONAL PAINTERS EARLY
If you know you want to paint your house soon, spring is the time to do it!
