Looking for a way to improve your curb appeal? There’s nothing like a fresh coat of paint to revitalize the look of a home. Not only can old, peeling paint make your place look rough, but it can also compromise the structure’s integrity! Paint acts as a protective layer against the elements, and can help your siding last longer.
We can provide exterior painting services on a wide range of siding materials, including:
“All the work was professionally completed and in a very timely manner!”- Marilynn M.
“They went above and beyond to make sure that everything was cleaned up nicely.”- Lavina A.
“We would recommend Awalt Construction to friends and family!”- Debi P.
“I was extremely pleased with the results.”- Mark H.
“After getting the insurance company's approval for the damage, Steve walked me through everything they would be looking at during repairs.”- Brian S.
“Overall excellent experience working with Steve and Awalt Construction.”- Mike S.
The fact is that there is no perfect time to paint a house. The ideal conditions rely on weather and humidity levels; extreme temperatures should be avoided, so anywhere between 65 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit can work well. High humidity can increase the dry time, and rainfall can put a project on hold. Wind, too, can present issues.
The best time to paint the exterior of a house is when:
- Temperatures are moderate, between 65 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit
- Humidity levels are low
- The forecast is clear of rain
