Return to the Blog Home Page

Exterior painting is a great way to freshen up the exterior of your home and add more curb appeal to your house. At the same time, paint also serves a critical functional purpose of protecting your home’s siding, and when you opt for Rhino Shield you get the added benefits of fire resistance, extra insulation, and more. However, you need to pick the right time. Wondering when the best time to hire painting contractors is? We’ve got the answer.

Exterior Painting During Moderate Temperatures

Paint tends to adhere the best when the temperatures are moderate. For that reason, you may want to schedule your exterior painting during the spring or fall months. If you need to paint in the summer or winter, you should shoot for a day with moderate temperatures. However, your painting contractors can let you know the right time based on the type of paint you plan to use and the material your home is built with.


Check the Weather

To be on the safe side, you should check the weather forecast before you start exterior painting. Ideally, you want to schedule the work at a time when there are cool temps and no storms in the forecast. That said, you can’t always accurately predict what’s going to happen with the weather, and when you work with professional painting contractors, they can always reschedule the job if the weather becomes unruly.


Beware of Falling Objects

You may want to keep in mind that falling objects can get on your house and stick to your paint. For that reason, you should avoid doing exterior painting in times of excessive wind. The wind may cause ladders for workers to be unstable, it may create drips or streaks in your paint, and it may blow debris or dust onto your home. On top of that, you should also try to schedule your exterior painting for a time when leaves are not falling aggressively and when cotton is not falling from trees.


Paint in a Timely Fashion

With all those conditions, you may struggle to find the absolute perfect time to paint. Keep in mind that there you just need reasonable conditions, you don’t need perfect conditions. Also, try to avoid putting off your painting too long. If you don’t paint in a timely fashion when your home needs it the most, the siding can get damaged, and the job can take longer.


Regardless of when you decide to paint, you need exterior paint that can truly be a benefit to your home. Rhino Shield is an innovative paint alternative that is eco-friendly, works on any surface (siding, brick, stucco, etc), and provide a variety of features to protect your home. As an added bonus, you also receive a 25-year warranty.
