Thinking about a painting project for your home? If you’re just starting to plan your project, it helps to know the best time of year to paint your home. For interior painting projects, the answer is easy. Because the painting is happening indoors in a climate-controlled environment, an interior painting project can be completed any time throughout the year. However, when it comes to exterior painting projects, you’ll need to pay more attention to your local weather conditions. Here are the factors that can influence an exterior painting job to help you determine the ideal time of year to paint your home.

Best Time of Year for an Exterior Painting Project

As a general rule of thumb, the best time to paint your home is in the spring and fall thanks to the temperate weather. However, this can vary quite a bit depending on what part of the country you live in. For instance, in states with southern climates, like Florida, Georgia, and Texas, the winter months between October and March will likely be your best bet for an exterior painting project.

In southern states, the winter months are a better option because the weather is cooler, but not too cold, providing ideal weather conditions for the paint to dry effectively. When the temperatures start to dip below 50 degrees, this can impede the paint’s ability to dry, slowing down your project. Additionally, these months are typically dryer allowing for more opportunities to paint. Remember, you’ll need a large window of time without the threat of rain in order to apply the paint and then allow proper dry times.

The temperature, humidity, type of paint, and many other factors can impact your painting project, and finding the best opportunity to paint your home means taking all of these into account. You can always leave all of these nuances up to the professionals by turning to a company like Southern Painting for your house painting needs.

Average Star Rating

I would definitely hire Southern Painting again. Professional, trustworthy and conscientious.

We needed to have some exterior and interior painting done and were also on a tight schedule. Southern painting did a great job and worked with our schedule. The house looks amazing! The entire process was very easy and everyone was friendly and professional.

Absolutely phenomenal company to work with. Did a fantastic job and was very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend them to others!

I can't believe the professional care we experienced with Southern Painting! The crew was very knowledgeable, experienced and took care of our older home like it was their own.
