Why Fall & Winter are the Best Times of Year for Interior Painting

While many people typically associate both exterior and interior house painting with summer and the warmer months, there is actually a very compelling argument to make for interior painting during the fall and winter. Horner Painting has provided Fort Collins with superior house painting services since 1999, so we’ve worked through our fair share of chilly Colorado seasons! In all of these years of service we’ve learned that fall and winter are not only a great time for interior painting — they might just be the best time to get the job done!

Jobs Go Faster Fall & Winter

As we mentioned, painting companies tend to get a lot of business in the summer. While this is great for painting companies, it also means that there is a lot of potential for your painting job to be scheduled out by several days or weeks. Many homeowners don’t think about interior painting in the colder months — and this can work to your benefit. Since business tends to slow down when the snow starts falling along the Front Range, the timeframe between when you call us and we begin your paint job shrinks exponentially.

Dry Air Facilitates Quick Drying

If there’s one thing that Coloradoans know about our climate it’s this — it can get dry. The air only gets drier during the fall and winter months, and while this can make for some dry hands, it does wonders for the drying time of interior paint! In the colder months, interior paint applied in your home will cure faster, cutting down on the amount of paint fumes you and your family are exposed to. Lower humidity also means that paint will create a better bond with your wall and dry evenly.

Less Summertime Stress

Summers already tend to be jam-packed with activities and other projects. While the summer months are — and will continue to be — popular for home improvements, there’s an easier way. Instead of worrying about painting during the dog days of summer, get out and enjoy the season! Dressing up your home in fresh new colors can also be a welcome relief to the relatively drab and gray winter months.

Kids are Out of the House

Don’t get us wrong — we’re a family company, and we love kids! We also know how much of a hassle it can be to be a parent to younger kids during home improvement projects. One of the best selling points for painting in the fall and winter, especially for parents, is that kids are in school and out of the house for several hours of the day! Imagine how excited your kids will be to come home from school and find a vibrant, fresh coat of paint in their bedroom — all without accidentally touching wet surfaces or getting paint where it doesn’t belong.
