BEST TIME FOR PAINTING HOUSE INTERIOR
Most times, we associate painting as a task for the warm weather. If you are doing an exterior paint job, then you may have to wait for it to be a little warmer, depending on what you want to do and the type of paint you are using.
However, if it is an interior paint job, winter is the perfect time to get it done. You may ask why, Below are the reasons i came across on BRS Custom Painting.
You Can Get A Great Deal
Traditionally, the winter is a slow time for painting contractors. Most often they will have a busy summer, but like the story of the ant and the grasshopper, they have got to put away a nut to get through the winter months.
Because of this, if you are looking for a deal, contractors are likely to give you a much better bid for an interior painting job during winter than overbooked summer when every other person is also trying to get their exterior painting work done.
You Will Get It Done Faster
Summer or winter, exterior painting jobs have a clock that starts when the sun comes up which runs out when the sun goes down.
Because of quality and safety, it is just not smart to continue painting at night.
Nevertheless, even if the sun goes down at four in the afternoon, you can still have a painter work from nine to five with no problem, after all, you are indoors, so the sun doesn’t matter.
This will give both of you more flexibility to get the job done and faster too.
In Winter, You Don’t Have To Throw Open All The Windows
It is true that you will need to be aware of paint fumes. But the truth is that you do not need to open every window in a room you are painting in, you just need to ensure there is proper ventilation, which is a much different story. Although, your heat bills may go up a little during an interior painting job, but compared to the costs of booking a painting contractor during the summer, it’s still okay.
Winter Air Is Great For Curing Paint
Though the summer may have its own virtue in many aspects, there are parts about it painting contractors fo not enjoy, and one of those parts, is that humid summer air because the more humid it is outside, the longer you have to wait for your interior paint to dry.
This will hold up jobs, add time to tasks, and it generally makes an interior painting job a bit more expensive than it normally should be.
However in the winter, with just a small opening of the window, these problems wouldn’t be as prevalent.
