Why Winter is a Great Time for Interior Paint Jobs
Thursday, December 17, 2015
Most of us think of painting as a warm weather project, which is reasonable when you live in the Midwest and you are thinking about painting the exterior of a house or building. But when it comes to interior work, winter is a great time to get painting projects done.
If you like a discount, you’ll love getting painting projects done during the winter months. Because exterior work has to be put on hold until spring, winter is typically a slower time for painting contractors. Painting contractors at Mister Painter are very skilled at time management but they are still subject to the weather, which means they have more time available for you and may be willing to offer a discount for work done during this time.
Faster is Better
Exterior jobs rely on warmer weather and are dependent on the light of the sun—once the sun sets, the job is done for the day. But interior jobs can often start immediately, work around your schedule (rather than the weather or daylight hours) and be done very quickly because contractors are more available.
But Don’t We Have to Open All the Windows?
Because paint fumes are less than pleasant, you may not want to hang around while the paint is drying, but that doesn’t mean you have to open all the windows in the house on a frigid, winter day. Almost all new houses have excellent ventilation, which will adequately take care of paint fumes, without opening a single window.
Dry Air is Great for Drying Paint
Your skin may not appreciate the drier, winter air, but your painting contractor sure does. Humidity, common throughout the Midwest, slows the drying process while the drier air we have all winter helps speed it up. Not only does this mean that you’ll be free of residual paint fumes faster, but it also means interior paint jobs are finished quicker, and therefore cost less.
If you’re looking for a reliable, professional, experienced team to paint your house anytime of the year, you can count on Mister Painter. Give us a call today and you’ll find out why we enjoy such rave reviews for our work.
