You may think that most home improvement and renovation projects are best left to warmer summer weather here in Minnesota. However, you may be surprised to learn that it makes more sense to do some winter home improvement projects. Which project would that be, you may be wondering? Why not have a professional roll on a fresh coat of paint? It’s a worthwhile project that will give you something exciting to look forward to around your home on cold dreary days. There are more benefits to painting your home during the winter. Here are four!
Paint Dries Faster in Winter
Standing around waiting and watching paint dry isn’t any fun, especially during the summer when you would rather be doing other things. Well, during the cooler and less humid winter season, paint actually dries faster than during the summer season. The reason is because the cooler months typically bring lower humidity to the Twin Cities Metro area than the hot and sticky warmer months of summer. So, home interior painting in the winter and the cooler months can save valuable time which you could be doing other outdoor activities.
Prioritizing Renovation Projects By Season
The second benefit of painting the inside of your home during the winter is that it frees up more time for you during the summer to focus on outdoor renovations. When the weather is sunny and warm outside, you may not want to be cooped up inside with a project that could already be finished and one with. During the warmer months of the year, you can focus on outdoor renovations, such as roof replacement in Twin Cities, overdo roof repairs, installing new siding, or exterior home painting.
Easy Scheduling With Painting Contractor
The summer season tends to be a busier time of year for everyone, for customers and for local home contractors. Why juggle home renovation projects around your vacation time? Further, if you’ve ever tried to schedule a home improvement project during the summer, you may already know that many home contractors don’t have time to take on new customers, especially if there has been a recent storm that has necessitated storm damage repair to so many homes. So, try your interior painting project during the cooler months, and you may just find that it’s easier for all parties involved.
Brighten Up the Dull Winter Days
What to do, what to do, oh, what can I do on dull and dreary winter days? Do you ever get the feeling of being cooped up too long in your home during the winter? It’s cold outside and the days are shorter leaving you with less sunlight. After a while, it can really have a lasting negative effect on many people. The “winter doldrums”. Who needs that? Well, why not call your painting contractor and get started re-imagining how beautiful the rooms of your home are going to look after a fresh paint job!
