Winter is cold and snowy. And the Belleville, Shiloh, Collinsville and surrounding area gets hit with some of the nastiest Midwest blasts.

This weather doesn’t have to put a damper on many interior home projects, however. In fact, interior painting is done more easily and more economically in the winter.

That sounds like a win-win, doesn’t it?

If you need more convincing, here are my top 4 reasons why I recommend interior painting be done in the winter.

1. Have to be home to let painters in? Put time off over the holidays to good use.

It’s a lot easier to “let the guys in” to work when you’re spending more time at home, right? And hey, since you are spending more time at home, you can also feel better about your freshly-painted space when you spend hours inside the same four walls on a Netflix binge!

2. Paint dries faster.

This is one of my favorites. Yes, your paint will dry noticeably faster during winter months. Warm, humid summer weather is the culprit for longer drying time when it’s nice outside.

3. You take advantage of early light.

Yeah, daylight savings time makes for an advantage when painting, too. Specifically, during the winter, the sun rises earlier. Our guys can come to your home earlier, too, and take advantage of this early light. This is the ideal lighting for the best look at your walls, and speeds up our painting process.

4. It saves you time and money.

It’s true, some home improvement projects can only be done when it’s nice out. By taking care of interior painting in the winter, however, you’ll have more time come spring and summer to focus on exterior projects. 

And the icing on the cake? Since few homeowners think to take advantage of the above perks and get into interior painting projects during the winter, you can almost always find winter offers on paints and labor.
