Were you thinking about getting your home painted this winter, but kept hearing people saying that it's more worth it to wait until summer? Maybe in the past seasonal changes could limit your freedom of choice when it came to painting interiors, but paints have changed and they no longer take days to dry. Most importantly, today’s paints don’t contain toxic chemicals, which means they are no longer dangerous if exposed shortly after being used. Because of this, the concerns that used to hold people back from painting their homes in winter are outdated. In this article I will walk you through the benefits of painting your property during the winter months.
New, Quality - Assured Paint
Originally, paint contained odorous toxins and chemicals which were harmful if inhaled. Today however, as mentioned above, the composition of paint is no longer a health hazard, Dulux matt is a great example of this. With excellent coverage and high abrasion resistance, it is one the most popular and widely used brands in the UK, not to mention that its price - performance ratio is one of the best. If all of these perks weren’t enough, you’ll be happy to know that it is a UK based paint company; homeborn brands are always worth supporting!
It is true that paint dries faster, and better in warm weather, but the temperature outside is not the most determining factor for ensuring a good result. The temperature of the walls themselves is just as important (if not more so), and these are warmer in the winter, thanks to our modern heating systems. Say goodbye to opening all of your windows throughout the day and hoping for the best.Thanks to the fact that the interior walls are warmer in winter, whatever paint you use, will dry and set faster. Your paint will only take a few days to dry, and you won’t have to worry about having to leave your house with all of your windows open. Ask any of our partner painters and they will let you know that on top of this, painting in winter will gives longevity to the paint!
In winter, the air tends to be drier than in summer, which helps speed up the drying process. This also applies to the removal of mould, dirt and grease. It is better to address these issues in winter, as opposed to in summer when the humidity levels are higher, as it will significantly reduce the chance of them resurfacing. So yes, even if you can open your windows in summer, the paint will take longer to dry, and you will be sitting on plastic- wrapped furniture for days on end. I can’t reiterate enough the fact that today's paint is not harmful to one’s health, when you paint in winter, you won’t have to worry.
Lower Prices & Faster Responses
Finally, the benefits of painting in winter do not end with mere weather conditions, as prices at this time of the year tend to be more affordable and worthwhile. Although the myth of painting in summer gives a better result has already been debunked, people still believe it! This means painters are extremely busy over the summer months, often resulting in unreasonably high prices. Moreover, due to their high demand, you have no way to assure their availability for getting the job done, and can run the risk of being painter less. Winter months provide the perfect opportunity for securing a painter at a much more reasonable price. Don’t believe it? You can see for yourself on Adam’s online quote calculator.
