When it comes to painting your home, many of us assume that the best time to do so is during the summer. That’s not necessarily so! Our Franchise Owners’s businesses actually stay quite busy during the autumn months! There are many advantages to painting during this time and here are a few of these advantages that make sure to tell our customers:
Paint needs dry surfaces to adhere to the walls and to evaporate in order to dry. Humid conditions can place moisture in the paint. If this happens while you are painting or after you have painted the surface and waiting for it to dry, the texture of your paint job could be ruined, causing you to have to re-paint the walls. Fall months can be drier and less humid than other months of the year. If the weather forecast calls for rain within a few days of the date that you plan to paint, you may need to schedule it for a different day.
Our Franchise Owners utilize the robust home improvement industry to deliver a residential painting franchise with year-round revenues.
Although you may be painting indoors, the temperature outside can affect the temperature of the walls indoors, as well as the room temperature if you open windows to release paint fumes. Paint may not dry properly in extreme temperatures. If the weather is too hot, it may dry too fast and can crack and bubble. If the temperature is too cold, it can prevent paint from drying. Therefore, you may want to make sure the temperature is above 40 degrees, but no hotter than 70 degrees before you paint. In many areas of the country, this may be early to mid-fall when temperatures can be relatively mild.
Less Chance of Drastic Temperature Changes
Paint may not respond well to drastic temperature fluctuations. Winter, spring and summer months can see more fluctuations in temperature from day to night than in the fall. Temperatures in early fall months tend to be more stable and may show less fluctuation. Even though you may be indoors, the outside temperatures can permeate to your walls.
