If you live in a state like Pennsylvania that frequently sees low winter temperatures or even snow, and the weather outside is keeping the lyrics of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” on the tip of your tongue while Jack Frost is nipping at your nose, it’s probably still too cool to contemplate painting the exterior of your home. Experts say any temperatures below 40 degrees or even 50 degrees is just a little too chilly to consider house painting in places like Haverford, PA. Between dropping nighttime temperatures, lack of sunshine, and morning dew, a new coat or two of fresh exterior paint can cause problems in the long run when completed during temperatures that are not in the right range.
While all painting professionals have their own opinion, most agree that it’s best to wait for those warmer temps to provide the best exterior painting experiences. An alternative to a fresh exterior coat when the weather isn’t permitting can be to spruce up other parts of your property. For example, in Newtown Square, house interior painting is a great choice. There, residents may be singing the catchy lines from the seasonal tune until March or April, depending on the weather trends for the year. If they need a pick me up sooner than the outdoor weather conditions permit, painting kitchen cabinets, adding wallpaper, or brightening up the paint inside the house can be the answer that holds them over until the weather is right outside for exterior painting.
No matter what color you choose, you assuredly want your exterior paint job to age well without mildew, cracking, and peeling. A key to keeping your exterior looking amazing is finding the right professional to do it when the conditions are perfect. After all, a great foundation leads to a long period of success.
