Why Should I Repaint My House Exterior In Spring?

Recover From Winter Damage 

Winter weather can wreak havoc on your home’s exterior. Snow and ice put stress on your roof, siding, gutters and more, while moisture from rain or humidity can cause your paint to crack, blister and peel. If you can’t fix these issues in a timely manner, they will grow worse over time, requiring costly repairs and maintenance to restore them to good condition. The good news is that if your house exterior is looking a bit shabby by spring, you can recover from the damage by repainting your house. By doing so, you can keep your home looking good for years to come. 

Mild Temperatures Are Perfect For Exterior Painting 

The mild temperatures of Spring are ideal for completing the job quickly and easily. Latex-based paints are at their most durable when applied during mild weather. Hot weather causes the paint to dry too quickly and compromises good coat formation. Similarly, cold weather can prolong the drying process and cause a weaker bond, which can lead to peeling later. 

Spotting Other Necessary Repairs 

Spring is the perfect time to take a close look at your home and make sure that all of the major components are in good working order. This can include checking your roof, siding, gutters, windows, and doors for damage or wear and tear that may need to be repaired. Exterior paint helps protect these surfaces against the elements, but it’s not a permanent fix. When your house’s paint starts to peel or crack, it exposes the underlying materials, which can cause wood rot and other damage to your home. Rather than wait for your exterior to start deteriorating, get to work fixing it right away. That way, you won’t have to add a lot of repairs to your to-do list in the future.
