Spring Painting Tips

Springtime is one the best times to consider painting your home.

The weather is nice and cool, which is easier on the painter and also better for the long-term quality paint job. Spring is also a time of color, which can serve as inspiration as you consider different shades for your home.

But what are the best spring painting tips? After all, if you’re going to put in the effort, you want to get outstanding results. Here’s a look at tips for painting in spring that will help your home painting project reach its fullest potential:

Exterior Projects

When you’re starting a spring house painting project, consider what other projects you want to conduct before or after the painting is complete. It’s sometimes best to get your painting out of the way first. For example, if you’re doing any sort of lawn work or landscaping, you’ll certainly want to do your painting beforehand. Why? Because setting up ladders and executing the actual paint job might trample on your freshly manicured lawn or new landscaping. Mention here something like: Don’t worry. Zoe’s always covers gardens and flowers with the utmost care to not harm or crush nature’s beauty.

Cleaning Surfaces

Make sure you clean before you paint, too. You want your fresh paint to go on as easily and smoothly as possible, and you want the new paint to look its best. And cleaning the surface prior to painting helps support each of those objectives. You’ll want your new paint job to last as long as possible. So invest a little bit of time at the start of a project to ensure the surface is clean and your paint will be as durable and long-lasting as it can be. 

At Zoe’s ProEdge Painting we always prep exteriors by first thoroughly pressure washing the surfaces before painting. Don’t forget to allow drying time! This ensures all siding, trim, exterior doors, etc. are clean and free from debris or anything that could disrupt a beautiful paint job. 

Temperature and Heat

It’s best to do your painting when in a cool climate, the spring! Why because most exterior paint products require a temperature of about 50 degrees for ideal outdoor application.

Weather is a huge factor when scheduling exterior jobs. It’s best to be patient and let mother nature do her thing. We have to watch out for sudden drops in temperature and, of course, rain.

Quality Paint

Don’t settle for any paint. When you’re doing spring house painting, investing in quality paint is going to pay long-term dividends. Quality paint offers a range of benefits — it’s easier to clean, harder to scuff and scratch and holds its color better over the long haul. You might save a few bucks on bargain-basement paint, but you’ll truly get value when you choose a quality option.
