When we are waiting for the winter, we all tend to go into hibernation mode and create cozy spaces to hang out in. We spend much more time at home. Before it comes, you might want to change things up a bit. Fresh new paint color in your space is a great way to give yourself a little pick-me-up before those cold, grey days. Calling professional painters in Toronto is the right thing. But with the weather being unpredictable in many places, is it a good idea to paint before winter?
Professional Painters Toronto – Exterior Painting
To make an exterior home painting, the weather needs to cooperate. The temperature and conditions at the time of painting can affect how the paint dries. If it’s too cold out, the paint might not cure properly, resulting in an uneven finish. The same goes for rain; you want to give any wet surfaces a few days to properly dry out before painting, and you also want to make sure it’s not going to rain while the paint is curing after application. While there are special paints designed to work in colder temperatures, they can be quite costly and tricky to work with. For this reason, professional painters in Toronto like JXF Painting Service monitor both the air temperature and surface temperature to make sure the paint will cure properly.
If you happen to live in an area that tends to get a lot of rain or colder temperatures during the winter, it’s a good idea to hold off the exterior painting job until the weather warms up. However, if you happen to live in a relatively mild climate, you’ll likely be able to paint the outside of your house while you are waiting for the winter months.
Interior House Painting
If winter weather can make tricky for exterior painting, can you paint the inside of your home waiting for the winter months or during the winter? As Professional Painters Toronto we tell you that winter is a perfect time to get the interior painting done. In many climates, winter tends to be a lot less humid, which is great for indoor painting too. When the air is full of moisture, it keeps the paint wet and prevents it from drying properly. In winter or some weeks before it, it’s also a bit easier to control the temperature indoors. When you turn on the heat, you can keep the temperature consistent, which helps the paint to dry and cure properly.
