painting your home in winterIf you’re like many people, the idea of painting your home in winter sounds crazy. But did you know that winter is an excellent time to paint your home? Builders and property developers don’t wait for spring time to hire a painter and neither should you.

Today’s modern paints will dry quickly and adhere well. Here’s four great reasons to hire a professional decorator and start your painting project today.

Painting your home in winter makes great sense!

House painting during the colder months isn’t that much of a problem. In fact, the professional painters do it all the time. Here are four reasons why you should too:

  • You won’t have problems with humidity, which can happen in summer. A humid environment will slow down the dry time for paint. It also makes it physically more challenging in a hot environment.
  • Tradies are not as busy and are often readily available for winter work. Often they’re flat out and can be booked months in advance in spring and summer.
  • You might be able negotiate a better price. During the off season a tradie may lower their prices to get your work.
  • Painting now will maximise the value of your home, especially if you’re planning on selling it during the spring.
