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material that is utilized throughout many homes today, but oftentimes after years of use, carpet can become worn and outdated.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.
MAIN WEATHER FACTORS TO CONSIDER:
• Moisture in the air
• Big temperature fluctuations
• Cold weather
• Consistent rain
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.
The brand of paint you choose can also play a factor in how well your paint dries during the painting of your exterior. All brands and types of paint vary in how they finish once they are dry, which is why consulting a professional painting company is the best way to ensure that you are purchasing the correct paint for your home exterior. While this all may seem overwhelming, most times it is pretty easy to find a time frame where the weather will cooperate.
