A Time to Paint

Fall is the perfect time for wrapping up projects left undone from the summer. Perhaps top on the list is paint touch-ups. Painting is the perfect way to get up close and personal with your house. Not only do you spruce up the trim and seal any bare spots, but you can find any water damage or insects. Take the time now—before the winds, rain, or snow of winter—to find the problem spots and fix them once and for all. Now that cooler temperatures are here, the paint will adhere better with less bubbling. But be sure to paint only dry surfaces—moisture that seeps out from the wood can ruin your freshly painted exterior.

Perfect time to paint

Fall is the perfect time to paint with the temperatures being the way they are. I used www.mypaintbid.com to estimate my painting job and it worked great and I will definately use it again for my future painting project needs.

A Good Time for Caulking Too

Exterior caulking should go hand-in-hand with painting. Doing this in the fall will ensure air leaks are closed in time for cold weather. Using a high performance caulk to seal all gaps and cracks is a very important part of exterior painting.
