When having your home painted what is it you need to think about?

Once you have received your painting quotes and decided on your residential painter you need to consider when the best and worst times are to have your home painted.

Choosing when to paint your house means you need to consider the different seasons we have during the year. They all vary in temperature so you need to consider the best and worst time to paint your home.

Spring can be the best time to paint your home

With low humidity. Spring is also not too hot and not too cold. Home owners are usually feeling motivated with the hint of summer coming too. Also, if home owners are thinking of selling then now’s the time to get things organised and up to scratch.


Summer is generally too hot to paint. You want to make sure it’s not too hot as the paint can dry too quickly. Which can lead to an imperfect finish with lumps of paint or brush marks making the finish far from ideal. If you do paint in Summer make sure you get an experienced residential painter to handle the project for you.
