It’s recommended that homeowners invest in the exterior paint of their home every 8-12 years. Updating the paint and checking for any exterior repairs is an essential aspect of maintaining your largest investment. It’s important that you think beyond just the weather when deciding when to schedule your residential exterior paint job. Other variables play a part in impacting the success of your painting project. Here are a few helpful tips when considering the best time of year for your exterior painting project:
While not the only variable to consider, the weather is a major determining factor for the overall success of your residential exterior paint job. In the Northwest Oregon area, we are well aware of the consistent rains that occur throughout the year. While not completely avoidable, it’s going to be better for your exterior paint job to complete this work during the summer months. The longer daylight hours, higher temperatures and drier weather will give the exterior paint on your residence more time to set.
Value of Home
Exterior paint color has a huge effect on the overall value of your home. If you are looking to sell your home, you’ll want to make sure that renovations are completed at least one month before you begin the listing process. Don’t put off improving the exterior paint or landscaping on your property – you’ll want to ensure that all promotional materials and satellite images are updated to match the renovated look. Maintaining a high level of curb appeal is essential to attracting the best homebuyers. You’ll want to choose exterior paint colors that are proven to aide in re-sale value.
Consider Your Schedule
The most ideal time to complete any type of major renovation project is when it is best for you and your family. You don’t want to schedule an exterior paint job during a hectic time in your personal or professional schedule. You also want to work with painting professionals who understand your schedule and are able and willing to work within its boundaries. It’s also important to work with a painting contractor when completing work on your exterior. These professionals are able to help you determine exterior paint colors, and they are skilled at helping you determine the best timeline for the project.
Cost of Work
The cost of an exterior paint job can vary throughout the year. Seasonal weather patterns affect how much painting contractors charge for their services, and price incentives are sometimes advertised during slower times. If you have the time to plan for your exterior painting job one year in advance, keep track of pricing quotes to get a good idea of when would be most cost efficient time for you to complete work.
