It’s time to revamp the exterior of your house! Whether you’re spending time on your deck barbecuing or hosting a backyard picnic, having a freshly painted exterior can make a difference to the overall feel of your home. What better time to paint the exterior of your home than in spring!

Although exterior painting can be done at any time of the year, spring is the perfect season to accomplish your outdoor paint projects. Here are four reasons why spring is the best time to paint the outside of your home.

1. Weather Conditions

Paint and bad weather do not go well together. Snow, rain, and humidity can all wreak havoc on your home’s exterior. If the weather is too hot your paint could dry too quickly causing it to blister and crack later on. If the weather is too cold, your paint could stain or grow mildew on the surface due to moisture. As spring gets into full bloom, the weather gets warmer –  leaving snow and frost behind. It’s the most ideal time to start painting, as temperatures are not as extreme during the springtime.

2. Your Home Exterior is Stressed Out

Over time, the exterior paint of your home can get stressed out. Your home’s exterior has been exposed over the years to blizzards, ice, humidity, strong ultraviolet rays and more! Without revamping the exterior over time the paint begins to peel, fade, crack and blister due to sun damage from hot summer days or the harsh winter weather. With exposure from these elements, it can change the color of the existing exterior paint. With the weather not being too hot or too cold in the spring, it’s the perfect time to fix these issues.

3. Boosts Value to Your Home

Painting the exterior of your home is an easy way to dramatically increase the value of your property and improve your curb appeal. Potential home buyers are looking for a picture perfect property that they can call their own and if your home’s curb appeal makes a great first impression – they’ll want to see what’s inside. If you’re looking to move out at the end of summer or early fall, revamping the outside of your house in the spring could potentially put your home on the market at the beginning of the summer season!

4. Frees Up Your Summer

By painting in the spring, you’ll already be getting your house ready for the summer season. You’ll be ready to entertain guests for a backyard BBQ or host that 4th of July party. You can now enjoy the summer knowing your house is in good condition and looks great for all your friends and family to see!
