Is It Too Cold To Paint Outside Now?

Is It Too Cold To Paint Outside Now? | Purcellpro Painting | Willow Grove PA Painter Services

Here at PurcellPro Painters in Willow Grove PA, we love the warm weather.

And while it lasted a bit longer this year than usual, the cold is coming.

It always does.

But at what point is it too cold to paint your house?

Let’s take a look.

It’s Never Too Cold To Paint Indoors!

Before we start, it’s important to note that residential interior painting services as well as commercial interior painting services can happen all year long.

Winter might throw a monkey wrench in exterior painting concerns, but thanks to modern home heating we’re good there.

There are, however, certain factors to consider.

For example, painting indoors can sometimes create strong odors that can bother your family or your pets.

Modern paint is designed to be non-toxic, of course, but this doesn’t mean it isn’t bothersome, especially if someone in your home has a sensitive sniffer.

In the summer, this is an easy problem to solve – just open the windows, get a couple of fans blowing out of them, and close the door if you can.

But in the winter, this isn’t always an option.

For most, it’s not a big deal, but it’s something to consider either way.

Okay, So What About Exterior Painting?

It should go without saying that once the snow hits the ground, the window for exterior painting has closed.

Call us anyway – we’ll book you in for the spring.

But when is too late?

In the past, one of the biggest barriers to being able to paint outside – other than precipitation – was the fact that paint didn’t dry properly unless it was actually properly hot out.

The summer was the only time you could do exterior residential or commercial painting – otherwise it would just be a mess.

Thankfully, though, things have changed.

Thanks to advances in paint technology, we have access to paint that can dry in the cool weather of the spring and fall as well as the summer.

This still cuts off the winter – but let’s be honest, we’d rather do interior residential or commercial paint jobs in the winter anyway.

However, it still gives you access to a wider window for painting.

Now you can get those last minute exterior painting projects done before the snow falls, and it won’t impact the quality of your paint job.

In fact, this actually makes fall the ideal time to focus on exterior painting projects.

After all, the summer comes with its own painting challenges.

It’s more likely to rain in the early summer, for example, which is obviously less than ideal.

But also, the hot summer Sun can push exterior paint to dry too quickly, leaving an uneven paint finish in certain areas.

Obviously, a skilled painter can work around this limitation, but if you’re thinking of a do it yourself project, that’s something to be aware of.

These issues aren’t a problem when you’re painting during the fall – the cooler temperatures and less intense Sun actually make it the best time to paint.

Purcellpro Painting certainly lives up to its company name! I needed my whole interior done...walls and ceilings. Purcellpro Painting and crew were very accommodating as they were... able to squeeze my job in during a busy time of year for them! The crew was amazingly friendly as they always arrived very punctually, worked hard, and straightened up before leaving. The guys were not satisfied until I was satisfied and they took customer happiness to the extreme. Before completing the job, they did a final walk-through to ensure that they hadn't missed any spots! I would definitely use Purcellpro Painting again and would gladly recommend them!read more

Just a great experience having not only my walls painted but my problematic ceiling boards sealed with silicon, and then laid over with carpentry work to cover the board seams... with wood moldings of my selection. Frank really listened to what I wanted and gladly carried it through without question or hesitation to a perfect result. I couldn't be more pleased.Frank and Rich were prompt, responsive and efficient.One of the most professional and personable contractors I've had the pleasure to meet. What a find.
