3 Locations Serving New Jersey, Pennsylvania & St. Louis. From touching up trim to full exterior home painting, let our exterior painters transform your home with a fresh coat of paint!
A fresh coat of paint on the exterior of your home is an excellent way to give your house a facelift. With striking new paint, a house looks upbeat and charming. A house with old, flaking paint looks beaten down and shabby.
But, when is the right time to have your house painted? The answer depends on a few factors. At Gateway Home Services, we can help you choose the right time. We make it easy for you to maintain and add value to your home.
Why paint a house?
If you’re wondering if your house needs a new paint job, take a look at the paint. If it’s bubbling, peeling, or fading, a fresh coat of paint will improve its appearance. Paint can be damaged by weather and can fade over time. Some colors go in and out of style. Or maybe you don’t like the color of the house anymore. Painting a house can also improve the value and make it more desirable to sell if you’re looking to do that.
When is the best time to paint?
The weather can have a big impact on your painting plans. In New Jersey, you won’t have the most fun painting during the snowy winter months. Aside from the inconvenience of having to paint in bad weather, you also want good weather for other reasons. The temperature and weather actually affect the paint itself. Your siding needs to be dry before you paint, so if it rained yesterday, you wouldn’t be able to have your house painted for a few days.
If you have it painted during the day and then the temperature drops drastically, the paint will not cure properly. This could result in it cracking or peeling! On the other hand, if it’s too hot, the paint can clump and not dry properly. Humidity can affect your paint as well. The safest times of year to paint are generally spring and early fall when you have consistent weather that is relatively dry and not too wet.
Our handyman service can paint your house for you!
As you can see, there are relatively few times a year you can paint your house in New Jersey without having to tangle with the weather. Our snowy winters and sweltering summers are both tough times to paint your home exterior. Considering spring and fall are often busy times for people, a handyman service can paint your home exterior when you may not have the time or ability to do it yourself.
