You may wonder if it’s possible to paint the exterior of a building when the temperature is so cold. Although the weather tends to make it much more difficult, it is still often possible to paint the exterior during the winter – as long as it’s not raining. In the past, it wasn’t possible to paint in cold weather. When using oil-based paints in the cold, the paint tends to crack and open up, allowing water to get into the siding and cause damage to it. With the advancement of technology, a new acrylic paint was created allowing use in temperatures as low as 35 degrees! Some precautionary steps need to be taken when applying this paint, although it allows for the possibility of painting exteriors during the winter.
Last week we were busy working on a residential cabinet repainting project in Lake Forest Park, a commercial framing and drywall project at a hospital in Monroe, a multi-tenant drywall patching, texturing, and painting project in Marysville, a commercial exterior repainting project at a mall in Lynnwood, and another commercial framing and drywall project in Burlington.
We are currently booking mostly drywall interior painting projects. If you would like the interior – of your house or commercial building – repainted for the upcoming winter months, let us know. We do have several more openings where we can schedule you in. Make sure to book your painting before the holiday season becomes too hectic!
