Spring is right around the corner, and that means many homeowners are thinking about the home improvement projects they want to tackle when the weather starts to warm up. As residential painting contractors in St Paul, we know that spring is one of our busiest seasons when it comes to paint jobs. Here are a few reasons you should consider hiring our residential painting contractors this spring and why your first home improvement project should be a fresh coat of paint for your home’s exterior.
Hiring residential painting contractors to start an exterior painting project means that you will not have to worry that the mulch you just laid down will be trampled. While the residential painting contractors at Durapro do their best to make sure they do not damage your yard or landscaping when painting the exterior of your home, it is still a good idea to not put down new mulch until after we have completed our work.
Plus, spring is a great time of year for painting simply because there are fewer weather delays to worry about. Hiring residential painting contractors to get this task out of the way early on also means you get the grunt work and big chores out of the way first, so later on as the weather really begins to warm up and get pleasant, you can focus on other, more fun things, like barbeques, seeing loved ones and enjoying the great outdoors.
And did you know that exterior paint dries the best in mild weather, like what we see in the spring? The sweet spot, temperature-wise, is in between 50 degrees Fahrenheit but before it gets too hot, like the temperatures we get during the dog days of summer. Painting when the outdoor air temperature is just right can make a big difference in how the paint dries and adheres to your home’s exterior walls.
Residential painting contractors like us take the time to clean off your home’s exterior before we begin primering the surface for paint. We also know which weather conditions are best to work in (a mild, sunny day with little wind) vs. which ones will cause the exterior paint to dry improperly. We will take great care to ensure that we paint your home when the weather is nice out.
