Most experts will agree that you can paint the inside of your house year-round. Because the interior is climate-controlled, there is less of a risk to painting your house in any particular season. However, it is generally recommended to paint the interior of your home in fall or early winter.
If you’re wondering why these seasons are ideal for interior home painting, it’s time to take a closer look at how you should plan your next remodel.
Humidity levels are lower.
Paint dries extremely slowly when the humidity is too high, as it can often be during the spring and summer months. This can be extremely inconvenient to homeowners who want to get back to their normal lives. Instead, they become slaves to the clock while they literally watch the paint dry between coats or before reassembling the furniture.
By contrast, fall and winter tend to have lower humidity levels than spring and summer. The cold air encourages paint to dry faster, especially when paired with a running furnace that heats up the inside of your home. Keep in mind that your room will actually have to feel some of that cold air in order for the paint to dry quickly. This might mean leaving a couple of windows cracked open in the early afternoon.
Winter might be more convenient for you.
Painters tend to experience a short period of slower business in the winter months. This means that they might be able to work you into their schedule much sooner if you are ready to decide that the inside of your home could benefit from a new coat of paint. The lull in business may even inspire a contractor to offer you a discount on services you receive during this time of year.
It can also be convenient for you because you might have more days off work in the winter as you move into the holiday season. This prevents you from the cost of taking off work as well as paying the painter at the same time.
Winter also comes with earlier sunrises, which allow you to get a start on the day much sooner. With the increase in sunlight, you might want to consider getting to work on your painting at the crack of dawn. This should leave you enough time to finish the entire job by the end of the day.
