Over the year, professional painters are flooded with exterior painting jobs because most of the year the warm weather permits outdoor work.
Although the San Diego winter is mild, most painters focus on interior painting projects during the winter season to make sure the paint has the best chance of bonding to your walls and lasting the long haul.
If you’re planning on making interior painting your winter pastime, then you can make sure you’re ready for most—if not every—eventuality by planning ahead. Conversely, if you’re planning to leave your interiors to the professionals, you can also make sure that you get the right professional painter to work on your interior walls when you plan ahead 😀
Not convinced yet? Here’s our rundown on why you should take the time to plan out your next winter interior painting project:
Interior painting in winter gives you the best finish
Many homeowners believe that summer is the best time for painting jobs, but the truth is that carrying out interior painting during winter can produce some great results.
With the low humidity, the paint dries much faster and bonds well to the wall. The dry weather also prevents your walls from peeling and cracking over time.
Plus, professional painters are less busy during this time because exterior wall painting projects are impossible to carry out during winter. That brings us to our next point.
You can get the professional painter you want
Almost all professional painters will work on interior walls during winter simply because the weather is too cold to take on your exteriors.
But this also means that, with the many benefits of carrying out interior painting projects in winter, people are clamoring to claim a coveted spot in their professional painter’s calendar. This means most of the professional painters in your area may be booked months in advance for winter interior painting projects.
Getting the right professional painter for any job is crucial for the best possible outcome so be sure to get there early 😀
You can benefit from the convenience of being prepared
Once you’ve booked your professional painter you’ll realize that everything starts falling into place.
That means you can spend more time planning the overall project, taking into account the different approaches you may have to take, and actually enjoy the process of revamping your home.
It also means you will have ample time to select the perfect colors and even apply some sample paints on your walls to check which shade best suits your home.
You can also use the time you have to prepare your home for your professional interior painting job along with a few one-on-one consultations with your professional painter to get the perfect plan in place for your interior painting projects.
You can get the paint you want for your winter interior painting projects
If the recent paint shortages taught us anything, it’s that planning ahead is the best option.
Once you’ve decided to go ahead with painting your interior walls, one of the first steps should be to secure the paint you require to give your home that fresh look.
After speaking to your professional painter and getting some options, look to your local hardware store to check on the availability of the paint. If you have a few options in mind, then you have a better chance of getting a shade that you like in case one option is unavailable.
You can even look at putting in a special order if you really have your heart set on a certain color and don’t want to be disappointed 😀
Time to stop delaying your housepainting projects
Planning ahead definitely has its perks. Getting a headstart can give you the best possible chance of getting the perfect interior wall painting, without the stress and hassle you might experience if you left it to the last minute.
If you’re thinking that it’s too early and you have enough time to make these all-important decisions, then think again! It’s never too early to start planning your winter interior painting project.
Good luck 👍
