Chart showing timeframe to paint about 3-5 weeks


Painting projects are scheduled in the order in which we receive a signed contract from the customer and deposit payment.  Here are our current wait times:

We can paint your interior painting projects within a week or two of receiving your deposit and paint colors.

As of 5/11/22:

We’re just starting to paint exteriors because it’s just getting to warm enough outside.  Being New England, this could change in a moment, but it does look like the weather has been on our side.  We can only paint exteriors in the dry and relative warmth (above 50°F, consistently).

Right now, our wait to have your exterior painted is about 3-4 weeks.  This tends to get longer as the Spring progresses since our schedule tends to back up quickly as people decide to hire us.  This means, that the sooner you decide to hire us to paint, the sooner we can get to your project.

To give you an idea of the wait times based on the past 20 years:

Early April:  The wait to paint your exterior tends to be about 2-4 weeks.

Mid-late April:  The wait to paint your exterior tends to be about 5 weeks.

May: The wait to paint your exterior tends to be about 6 weeks.

June:  The wait to paint your exterior tends to be about 4 weeks.

July:  Depending on how much rain we’ve gotten in the Spring, we may be caught up or behind – it really depends on Mother Nature.

August:  The wait to paint your exterior tends to be about 2 weeks.  Incidentally, August tends to be a great time to paint your exterior because it’s usually so dry in Massachusetts in August.

We hope this helps you understand the weather and scheduling “tendencies” of painting exteriors.  

REMEMBER, we do give priority to projects with deadlines.  Believe it or not, most clients really don’t care when their exterior is painted. So, if you do care because your house is going up for sale or you’re having a party, we can usually move things around and make it work for you.
