Greg Mrakich Painting, Indianapolis, Indiana: When is it Too Late to Paint the Exterior of Your Home?

The weather is finally cooling off in Indianapolis after a record hot summer here and throughout the midwest.  Just the other day I received a call from a homeowner who would like to have the exterior of his house painted.  This happens every year without fail.  As soon as the weather cools off for the first time,  I’ll get a few calls for exterior painting work.  If you live in Indianapolis or another midwestern town or city, waiting until September to call a painter for exterior painting projects can be risky due to change in weather and painting contractor scheduling.  In the course of three days, Indianapolis went from temperatures in the 90s, down to the 60s, with rain to boot!  You don’t want to have the work done when it is too cold because paint does not cure properly when it is applied in temperatures below 40 degrees. I always recommend contacting a reputable painting company early in the spring so you can get on the schedule.  Better yet, book your exterior painting project now for next spring or summer, to make sure you will get on your painter’s schedule. That way, if weather becomes a factor like it did this past year in Indianapolis with rain early in the summer, there is plenty of time to get your exterior painting completed before the weather turns cold. However, If you NEED to have your exterior done this season, call a painter NOW.  There is not much time left this year to get it done.
