Winter is approaching and with friends and family coming over for the holidays it’s never too late to consider redecorating and painting. But can you paint your home in the cold winter months? While winter may not be the best time to paint the exterior of your home or business, it’s actually a good time to start painting the interior. Here are a few reasons to consider.
Nearly half of Americans waste their vacation time by never using it at all. With the holidays such as Christmas and New Year’s right around the corner why not start painting before friends and family come over for that Christmas dinner or the New Year’s Eve party you’ve had planned all year? Let’s not forget about those unpredictable snow days we always dream about! Own a business? The holidays are the perfect time to hire professional painters to come in when your staff is away on holiday too.
It’s that time of the year when business is slowing down for professional painting companies, so take advantage of the time they will have off. Painters will be eager to start helping with your winter project and they will most likely be able to work around your schedule and be able to add more workers to the job to get it done sooner and more efficiently. The summer is usually a busy time for painting companies so demand drives up prices, but when winter comes around prices tend to drop 20 to 40 percent so keep an eye out for “winter specials” being offered.

Less humidity in the cold winter months allows paint to apply better and dry faster. It’s always a good idea to turn up the thermostat to at least 50 degrees to make sure the walls don`t get too cold because if the temperature drops below 50 it can actually take longer to dry. If you decide to paint indoors this winter you also do not have to be afraid of harsh chemicals or toxins because of the paint. Benjamin Moore has many options when it comes to Eco-friendly, low and zero VOC paints including Aura, Regal Select, Waterbourne, Natura, and many more.
