Carpet is a pretty versatile material that is utilized throughout many homes today, but oftentimes after years of use, carpet can become worn and outdated. Many homeowners are beginning to make the switch from carpet to hardwood in many of the main areas of their homes. Not only does wood flooring look more modern but in most cases, it is easier to maintain. While some might take this project on themselves, it can be a bigger task than you might realize.

WAIT FOR WARM WEATHER TO PAINT YOUR HOUSE EXTERIOR

It is important to be cautious when choosing the right time to paint the exterior of your home. It can be worthwhile to wait until the weather is consistently warm, which for states like Connecticut, doesn’t usually happen until June.

Spring can have warm days but are typically followed by very cold night time temperatures. Painting during the unpredictable spring weather can risk poor paint application. This is why holding off until the summer months can produce the best results. Spring months may also bring long stretches of rainy days.

Waiting until the weather dries out is important in order to give your home’s siding a chance to dry out after months of winter snow and spring rain. Experienced contractors, like our team, will be cautious in checking when wet weather may be on the horizon and be able to find the perfect time for the exterior of your home to be painted.
LOOK FOR IDEAL CONDITIONS
Some homeowners may not be able to control when they until the summer to paint their home exterior, opting for the late spring or early fall months to do so. Many painters don’t mind stretching the painting season to be as long as possible, but also keep in mind that painting during consistent weather temperature is the most important factor. Weather conditions can change from year to year depending on the area you are located in. The trickiest part of exterior painting is choosing a day to paint, because as we know, weather can be very unpredictable at any time.
