If you ask most people, they’ll say that summer is the best time for exterior and interior painting. This misconception can lead to excessively long wait times during the summer months and, in some cases, more costly painting projects. At Van Tuinen Painting, we’re here to assure you: winter is a great time to paint your home’s interior! Winter painting is an amazing way to transform your home during the sleepy, snowy months and offers a wealth of unique benefits over summer painting. But what are those benefits? Let’s take a look at a handful of them!
1. Less humidity
Living in Michigan, we’re sure you’re aware that humidity can be a real problem in the summer. But, did you know that humidity can impact paint’s ability to adhere to your walls? Humidity can make it challenging to coat your walls, leading to uneven layers that don’t yield the results you want. During the winter, lower humidity ensures that paint adheres evenly, producing clean, consistent coats.
2. Faster drying times
It may sound weird but, trust us, interior paint dries substantially faster in the winter. Cold air combined with reduced humidity both have a noticeable impact on paint’s drying times, which can lead to faster, more consistent layers and – in some cases – reduced costs.
3. Discounted pricing
Due to the seasonality of our business and high regard for our employees, we offer a discount on interior painting projects during the winter months for the sole purpose of keeping our painters employed. This is a win/win for both our employees and customers.
4. More flexibility
Remember when we mentioned excessively long wait times? Well, since most people book professional interior painting companies during the summer, winter scheduling tends to be much more open. This, combined with shorter turnaround times, allows you to better schedule your painting project around your availability.
