In with Fall! How quickly October snuck up on us this year! If you’re like us, fall means a few of our favorite things are back: football, bonfires, and the perfect outdoor weather. As much fun as it is to plant beautiful fall flowers, arrange pumpkin creations, and hang a “Happy Fall, Y’all!” sign on your front door, perhaps your home itself could use a little TLC this season.
If you’re like many of our customers, you may be thinking, “Aren’t we moving out of exterior painting season?” That’s a good question! Despite popular belief, we have just come into one of the best times of the year for exterior painting. Trying to always do our best to inform and inspire, we’ve compiled some of our most frequently asked questions about exterior painting. We hope this serves you well!!
Q: What is the best time of year to paint my house?
A: Temperatures need to be above 45 degrees during the day for paint to be paint applied and cured correctly. With the mild temperatures in Georgia, the window for exterior painting is typically from February to late November.
Q: How long will my project take to complete?
A: On average the typical exterior project will take 4-6 days to complete (weather permitting). This could be slightly short or longer, however, depending on the size of the house, repairs needed, or project details.
Q: Do you brush or spray?
A: A combination of spraying and brushing will be required for most projects. In most cases we spray siding and soffit areas while windows, doors, shutters, and other trim will typically be brushed by hand.
Q: How long will a typical paint job last?
A: Factors such as sun exposure, over-shaded areas, and products used are all contributing factors in how long paint will stand the test of time. It’s important to inspect your house annually for weaknesses and failing paint, but generally speaking a quality paint job should last 8-10 years before having to paint again.
Q: What time does the crew usually start and wrap up each day?
A: Crew’s usually work Mon-Fri 9:00a-5:00p but may start early or work later if circumstances require, and after approval of the homeowner. Because we hold high family values, we do not typically work on weekends unless it is necessary.
