Fall is a great time for painting the exterior of your home, especially in the Palm Desert area. There are many factors to consider when you’re painting your home. The type of paint, finish, and color are all important as well as whether your home is stucco, brick or wood. The weather can be a big factor. Since fall temperatures here are milder it can be the perfect weather for working on the outside on your house.
Paint manufacturers have a recommended temperature range for application of their products. In most cases, to ensure optimal results, extreme temperatures during the painting process should be avoided. In the fall, the difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures is not as big and more consistent temperatures mean better results for your paint job. The paint on your house is important for protecting the structure from the elements, and fall is a great time to make sure your house ready for any kind of winter weather.
Any minor or cosmetic repairs necessary should be made prior to prepping your house for painting. Make sure the surface is clean and free of debris. When choosing a color, keep in mind that painting a light color over a darker color may require more than one coat. You will also want to coordinate your color choice with the shingles or trim. It is important to choose the correct type and finish of paint as well. Stucco or other special materials may present a challenge for do-it-yourselfers. This is when you want to be sure to have a professional do the job for you.
House painting can be a big project. Hiring a professional can help you make the appropriate choice for your house painting project. With some preparation and great weather you can be assured of great results.
