4 Reasons Fall is Prime Time For Exterior Painting

4 Reasons Fall Is Prime Time For Exterior Painting


Now that summer has come to an end, most homeowners are under the impression that the home
improvement season has come to an end. However, just because the leaves are changing color and
temperatures are becoming milder, it doesn’t mean you’ve missed the opportunity to make improvements
around your home. As it turns out, the fall season is the prime time of year for a number of
different projects around the house—and exterior painting just happens to be one of them.

If your home has been overdue for a new coat of exterior paint, but you just haven’t found the right time
to get the job done, why not take the time this fall to do so? To help highlight just a few of the many
benefits of getting your next exterior painting project performing in the fall, our team of professional
South Shore painting contractors have taken the time to put together this short list. We hope that you will read through them and enjoy before giving our team of skilled professionals a call to schedule your
project.

Scheduling Flexibility

Compared to the busier summer months, painting services during the fall are typically in lower demand
even though the weather is better suited to it, and that means most painting contractors are going to
have a much easier time scheduling your project at a time that is more convenient for you. With less
demand, painting contractors will generally have more open appointments as the season goes on,
allowing you to truly find a time for your project that’s most convenient for you—as opposed to having to
snatch up the first appointment available like you would in the spring or summer.

Less Rain

With the arrival of fall, not only do we get to look forward to milder temperatures, but we also tend to see
less rain overall—which is a great thing when it comes to exterior painting. While rain can happen at any
time of the year, the fall months generally see less of it than spring or summer. This is great for exterior
painting because moisture is generally a bad thing when it comes to making sure that your paint properly
dries and bonds to the surface of your home. By having your home’s exterior painting in the fall, you are
reducing the chances for rain to spring up and delay your project or keep your paint from drying properly.

Lower Humidity

As we stated above, moisture is generally a bad thing when it comes to exterior paint on your home. In
addition, the less moisture in the air, the better your paint is going to dry and bond to your home. As the
temperatures start to drop a bit during the fall, the humidity in the air also tends to lessen—which is
important for the longevity of your new paint. Humidity can have a similar effect to rain when it comes to
allowing your paint to properly dry and bond and the less of it you have in the air, the better.

Cooler Temperatures

Most people tend to look forward to the cooler temperatures of fall, and your painting contractors are no
exception. Not only does the cooler weather help in the drying of your paint, but it also means that your
painting contractors are going to have a much less uncomfortable time completing your project. The
cooler temperatures of fall allow us to work longer hours and allow us to do so without becoming
exhausted as fast as we would during the summer, which not only helps us to get the project completed
faster but also helps us maintain a higher degree of accuracy and efficiency in our work as well.
