Spring is here, and it’s time again to kick off exterior house painting season! April may seem early to some, but the timeframe is only so wide before colder and more unpredictable weather returns. That also means there’s a limited number of projects that can be completed between now and the end of autumn. And those spaces are quickly being filled. But, most of all, exterior house painting, especially in the springtime, is a wise long-term investment. Here are 5 reasons why:
- Your paint might be near the end of its life expectancy, which can cause an expensive domino effect (See 2 & 3). Waiting another year might not be a gamble you want to make.
- Repeated exposure to winter weather causes warping, mold, and mildew. Maintaining quality exterior paint jobs not only keeps your house looking nice—it’s also a preventative measure.
- If your house’s exterior paint isn’t properly maintained, your siding may begin to rot. That means you’ll end up paying replacement costs on top of a new paint job.
- Since spring is also landscaping season, it’s best to get your painting done first, otherwise all that meticulously-spread mulch or stone, not to mention those ornamental bushes, might get trampled by the painters.
- Painting in moderate weather, with less extreme temperature fluctuations, you’re likely to get a much longer-lasting paint job.
