Most Denver homeowners save their home improvement projects for the warmer months and cozy up by the fire to wait out the winter; however, there are some projects such as interior painting, that are advantageous to get done during the winter months.
As local Denver painters, we’ll tell you all the reasons why interior painting in the winter is beneficial and we’ll even help you with choosing an interior paint color!
It’s More Cost Effective!
Scheduling interior painting in the winter could actually save you money! The spring and summer months are the busiest time for contractors, which means prices are often driven up to correlate with the demand.
During the winter months, schedules slow down, and prices are dropped. On average, lower competition during the offseason makes for savings up to 20-60%!
You’ll See Accelerated Results.
When it’s the offseason, it’s likely you won’t have to wait to get your paint job done! The winter months are best for quick responses! Unless you’ve planned months in advance, it’s almost a guarantee you’ll have to wait to get a start on your project in the summer.
You can also use the extra days off during the holiday season to get your project done. This is a great way to get a head start on all your home improvement projects for the spring and summer.
But Will the Cold Affect the Paint?
As stated in our blog post about exterior painting in Colorado, it is recommended that you should never paint a house when the temperature is 50°F or below. However, with the high-quality paint that we use here at Paint Denver, this tends to hover around 40°F and some premium paints can be even be applied down to as low as 35°F.
Ideally, paint should be applied around 60°F and it’s best to change the temperature around 36 hours beforehand to make sure the walls are warm. And you don’t worry about airing out the fumes with us as Paint Denver uses only high quality, low VOC paint!
