Why Spring Is A Great Time To Paint Your Exterior

We love springtime! After a long winter of cold weather, leafless trees, and minimal time outside, Spring brings a fresh reminder that everything in life is just a season. Spring brings fresh blooms, chirping birds, warmer weather and a motivation that Winter just can’t compete with. On top of that, it’s the perfect time of year to give your home a fresh look. From new landscaping, and a freshly laid sod, to a brand-new exterior paint coat, your home has endless ways of making you fall in love with it all over again.

But why is Spring the perfect time to paint your home? Well, there’s several reasons actually.

Weather Damage

Have you ever heard of Winter light? The sun tends to be a lot harsher during colder months. This can cause paint to deplete and the siding underneath to get damaged. Winter months are oftentimes rainier, cause water to seep into cracks and crevices in your home’s exterior that even you may not be aware of. A fresh coat of paint can repair and prevent damage from occurring in the future. Paint really can be a miracle-worker for your home!

Popular Time to Sell Homes

The Spring is always the most popular time of year to put homes on the market! And although it’s still a seller’s market, it never hurts to make sure your home is looking its absolute best. The better it looks, the more offers you’ll receive, driving up the price and benefiting your pocket in the long run.

Better Weather

As mentioned before, the Winter months tend to go hand in hand with nasty weather. Rain, sleet, and snow have a tendency to wreak havoc on paint and can cause major delays in scheduling during the Winter. Extreme heat and extreme colds both have a negative affect on paint, so the Spring is ideal as temperatures usually range from the 50s-70s.

Frees Up Your Summer

Summer is meant for vacationing, spending time with friends and family, and enjoying the pool and holidays throughout May, June, July, and August. Not to mention, you’re home will look perfect for those Summer BBQs and 4th of July Celebrations.

Prices

Pricing tends to be a tad bit more competitive in the Spring time, which means you should get a better deal during this time of year!
