Best Time To Paint Exterior of Your Home, Madison Ct

Best Time To Paint Exterior of Your Home! Many people think that the best time to paint the exterior of your home is summer or spring, but really the fall months are very ideal for house painting!  In the summer months it can get very humid which causes paint to dry longer, especially if it’s oil which takes a lot longer. We are house painters in Guilford Ct and used to the many different temperature swings in the New England area. First painting your home is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to increase the value of your home!

When you paint your home in the fall you still have plenty of good weather to take advantage of! Sometimes its easier to do this valuable project in the fall due to the fact that things seem to be a little calmer around the home.  When you have a house painter on the premesis he usually will have a house painting crew with him.  When a good house painter from a reputable house painting company sets up the shop on your property, it can take up a little space.  If you decide to paint the exterior of your home in the fall, the kids are back in school and not around the house during the day, this makes it easier on the kids and family when house painters are working. In the fall, the weather is less humid which helps with drying time, and now with all the new high quality paints being able to sustain colder temperatures its a matter of researching the paint brand for the specifications and seeing the temp range.  Mostly it’s a good idea to stay above 40 Degrees in outside temp but you can go a little colder and do great.  There are a few things to watch for, the house painter you hire will want to make sure that the house surface is dry from any dew in the morning, this might mean a little later start, between 9:00-9:30 or a little later depending on where you live instead of the usual 7:30-8:00 am start, this gives more valuable time for drying.   After the paint or stain is applied in temperature’s at 40 degrees or above it is important that the temperature stay at 40 degrees or above for the next 3 hours so that the drying process is good.  Also, at night it’s important that the temperature does not drop below freezing the first night because curing paint can still have some moisture in it and it can crystallize in sub-freezing temperatures at night.  Please know that you won’t be aware of a problem until spring or summer months if this does happen because moisture can stay trapped under the wood, and in the warmer temps find it’s way out, which means bubbling paint!  So, if your house painter adhere’s to these guidelines,  you can have a fantastic paint job in the fall months! Sometimes you can get a little better value if you wait until the fall, a house painter is very busy in the warmer months and may be looking to fill a few gaps in the fall schedule and you can get a better deal!  We are house painters / painting contractors in Guilford Ct and we also serve the Madison Ct, Old Saybrook Ct, Westbrook Ct, Branford Ct areas and are happy to visit your home for a free professional evaluation or if you are not near us, please feel free to call us with any questions, we are so happy to help you!

How To Paint Vinly Siding, Madison Ct

Many people don’t realize that you can paint vinly siding. That’s why we created this blog “How To Paint Vinly Siding, Madison Ct ” to inform you.

Vinyl siding is great, but the color can fade over time and sometimes people would like to change the color.  Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams have high quality paint that is perfect for this.

I have been painting for over 35 years, I have painted houses in Guilford Ct, Branford Ct, Madison Ct and I have painted houses all the way up the shoreline in Ct.  I have painted many vinyl homes.

You need to make sure the house is clean and chalk free.  Then it’s important to pick a high quality paint and of course a great painting contractor!

If you have any questions or need advice, please call us!

Commercial Painting In Connecticut

We are a full service company that does Commercial Painting in Connecticut as wells as private residential work.   One job we did was in a nursing home, the hallways and a main recreational area.  They important part about this kind of work is keeping on schedule and having a very clean and neat job.  Here is one of our videos about this: http://youtu.be/fyhMAefRs_0?list=UUPqhZXm3tlefzuw_-YJCAPw

The hallways are always busy with residents strolling up and down them going to eat or activities so we don’t have the luxury of taping off an area where we are working. This is not a problem for us though, we are used to be highly conscientious on private work and we carry that same work ethic and consideration to our commercial work as well.

As always, please call us for any professional advice on painting you may need, even if you don’t hire us, we don’t mind at all helping you out over the phone!

How Much To Paint A Room, Madison Ct

Sometimes people will call the office and want a price over the phone to paint a room for them.  It’s not an easy answer!  A lot of the time the customer just doesn’t want to waste our time if we come out and it doesn’t fit their budget.  

First, it’s hard to give a price over the phone because we don’t know what condition the room is in.  Does it need extra patching?  Or extra prep above the norm or maybe it’s a very very easy job that won’t take much time at all.   So, we can end up over pricing or under pricing the job by not seeing it first.  That is why we created this blog ” How Much To Paint A Room, Madison Ct” http://youtu.be/dyZLkiB9yAU?list=UUPqhZXm3tlefzuw_-YJCAPw

So, please feel free to call us for an estimate for your home or for some professional advice!

How A Great Painting Job Gets Done Part 1, Madison Ct

It’s one thing to sort through estimates and find the price that fits your budget, but an important factor to getting a great painting job is in the prep work! This is why I created this article “How Great Painting Gets Done, Madison Ct. I  understand that price is important but what good is it to go by price alone if you don’t get a high quality paint job?  It’s like that old saying “Buy for price, buy twice”!  But, you don’t have to worry about that!

https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=j8K3gV_FNZ4

 

Here are a few things to look for in an estimate:

-Make sure they are licensed with the state of Ct

-Make sure they have a lead license

In the estimate, make sure that they detail all the prep work that will get done, like, replace rotted wood.  Scrape and sand. Use a high quality primer, make sure a high quality paint product like Benjamin Moore is used.  Proper putty and caulking should be done.

There should be a clean looking crew that shows up on time and is neat and conscientious.

Without good prep work nothing else matters, it won’t look like a high quality job.

Please feel free to call us at Coastline Painters LLC at 203-458-2073 with any questions, we are happy to talk with you.  I can also come out and give you a free professional home evaluation!
