Exterior House Painting in Cleveland – Is It Time For It?
Once the cold and dark of winter are over, we start turning our attention to the outdoors. With yards, gardens, driveways, siding, gutters, grills and more all calling for our attention, we might wonder where is the best place to start. While summer and autumn can both be fine times to paint your Cleveland home exterior, there are several advantages to performing the work in the spring.
One consideration in timing your exterior work is that painting the outside of your home will cause a lot of foot (and ladder) traffic through your garden. It would be best to save your mulching, weeding and planting until after the siding is washed, scraped and painted.
Another important factor is that paint cures best in mild temperatures. Exterior paint will dry fine in the summer, but painting your home in the spring can yield better curing and longer lasting results.
Finally, if you paint the outside of your house in the spring, you will have a much longer time to enjoy it before the cold weather sets in again! Get your home in shape before the barbecues, graduation parties and pool parties begin, and enjoy a fresh, new look for three seasons.
