Winter doesn’t need to put a halt to all home improvement projects. Some remodeling efforts may actually come out better during the winter! Interior paint jobs can benefit from being performed during colder weather.
Benefits to Winter Painting
When it’s nice and warm outside, there’s more humidity in the air, which effects how your paint will dry. Added moisture in the air can prolong the drying process and affect the paint’s ability to stick to the wall. You may notice unevenness in the color on your walls and streaks across the paint. Cold winter air tends to be crisp and drier, making it the perfect time to get started on that interior paint job you’ve been thinking about all year. It is crucial to remember to crack a window to fully ventilate the room and expose the drying paint to cold air. Although the sun sets earlier in the afternoon, you will be able to get started on painting earlier in the day and be able to see the color dry in natural sunlight, especially reflecting off of any snow on the ground. Starting earlier in the day will also allow you to devote more time in the afternoon and evening to other tasks.
An additional benefit to painting your interior over the winter is the amount of time and money you will be able to dedicate to other projects come spring and summer. You will have the summer to spend on exterior renovations, from gardening to painting your home and deck. The outside of your house will be able to be painted as soon as the weather clears up, especially on a dry stretch without expected rain.
