While winter’s snowy and cold conditions put a damper on many home remodeling projects, interior painting is not one of them. In fact, there are many benefits to painting the interior of your home during the wintertime! And 360 Painting Minneapolis would live to help! BUT If you need any additional convincing as to why you should plan your paint job this season, check out our top 5 below:
1.) Put Time Off to Good Use
Between the holidays and snow days and sheltering in place, we are spending more time at home these days. What better way to be productive during your time stuck at home than with a home remodeling project? Of course, if the weather is bad, you may need to plan and purchase your interior paint before the snowstorm hits!
2.) Your Paint Will Dry Faster
Contrary to what you may believe, your paint job will dry noticeably faster in the winter compared to the summer! That is because the warm, summer weather that we all enjoy typically go hand in hand with humidity, which is not kind to paint’s drying process. Winter weather, however, is cold and crisp, allowing for your paint to dry quicker. Please note, that to take advantage of this, your windows will have to be open (or at least cracked) for you to ventilate the room with cold air.
3.) You Can Take Advantage of the Early Light
The sun rises earlier during the winter. Take advantage of this by getting your paint job completed earlier in the day! In addition, the snow on the ground reflects light, giving you nice natural light to complete your interior painting project. Having great lighting will help you become more efficient and speed up the process, in addition to making it easier to see any spots that you might miss.
4.) You Can Get Professional Help For Lower Costs
Not only are contractors less busy in the winter than they are during the warmer seasons, typically they are less expensive as well. (Supply and Demand!) This means that you can get the professional look you desire for almost half of the cost. Furthermore, because contractors are less busy, they will be more able to work around your schedule rather than you having to work around theirs.
5.) Saves You Money and Time
Some home remodeling projects can only be completed when the weather is nice. By completing your interior paint projects in the winter, you will have more time to focus on external remodeling projects, such as exterior painting, deck repairs, siding or even windows. In addition, because it is usually cheaper to paint the inside of your home in the winter compared to the summer, you can use the money you saved on an additional remodeling project. And 360 Painting Minneapolis can get an estimate for your outside projects too for better budgeting!
