Spring to-do List

As the spring-time weather starts to shift from messy to mild, many homeowners’ attention turns to the outdoors. It’s time to clean things up, tend to the garden, and make some much needed repairs to both the home and its surroundings. Where to begin? According to the experts, if paint is failing, this should take your focus. There are plenty of good reasons to start your Spring cleaning with exterior painting.

Here’s why Exterior Painting Should Come First this Spring

First off, Spring is a very comfortable to time to start outdoor painting. The weather is starting to warm up, but the temperature isn’t too extreme. It’s great to get this project out of the way before the madness of Summer comes around. Then, in the Summer, you just get to enjoy the new paint without having to worry. It won’t interfere with Summer gardening, sports, and barbecues.

If your paint is near the end of its life, you’re taking a chance by postponing a repaint. It doesn’t take long for exposed wood to start to rot, and many other exterior surfaces also suffer when the paint starts to wear off. Waiting too long may result in more structural repairs.

It can be challenging to find the perfect weather to begin paint. Try to wait for another day if it has rained within the last 24 hours. At Van Isle Paint, we suggest a home has anywhere from 24-48 hours to allow the home to fully dry before applying paint. If the surface hasn’t had a chance to dry out, it may result in failed paint. We want to ensure that your home gets the most life out of our paint job.
