When is the Best Time to Interior Paint?

Posted on November 10, 2022

An interior paint job is not the kind of project that can be undertaken just any time of the year. There are optimal times and appropriate weather conditions to make your project take less time and turn out better. So when is the best time to paint a house interior? With winter heading to our area, you may be thinking you missed your window of opportunity. However, there are plenty of benefits to getting your interior paint job completed now. Here are just a few of our reasons our professionals recommend interior painting this winter.

Easier Scheduling

With most homeowners scheduling their paint work in the summer months, scheduling in the winter can be a much better experience. Scheduling your interior paint project in winter will often eliminate waiting around for availability for both estimates and actual work to begin. With paint crews eager to get back to painting, it’s a good idea to take advantage of winter. Some companies will offer specials to get your job done now. Take advantage of empty schedules and get your work on the books now. Your wallet will benefit by keeping these crews busy now.

Prepare for Guests

While it is a smaller consideration, the holidays are coming! If you are hosting dinners and out of town guests, now is the time to clean up and paint those guest rooms and guest baths. A redo in the dining room or kitchen could be just the ticket to set off your holiday decor. It’s tempting to go full-on holiday themed colors, be cautious. Remember, the paint will remain long after the holidays have come and gone. Choose a neutral that will work year round for the best outcome.

How to Find the Best Interior Painters

Get Estimates

The first step to hiring the right interior paint crew is getting estimates from companies in your area. This should be a fairly easy process and take very little time, especially if you are looking for top tier painters. Once you have the estimates compiled, you’ll want to take a look at the prices that were offered to you. While you probably don’t want to choose the most expensive option, you may also want to be wary of the least expensive option as well. A company that offers cheaper services may not provide the highest quality paint or paint materials. Ideally, you’ll want to shoot for a company that offers something in the middle.

Ask the Right Questions

Once you have your estimates in hand, it is time to jump on the phone. You should not book any interior painters without asking a few questions first. Here are some of the most insightful questions you can ask for potential contractors:

  • Do you offer a warranty with your work?
  • Do you have your current insurance certificate covering general liability, worker’s comp, and auto? (This question is especially important if you are working with a small business.)
  •  Can you provide references of at least 3 recent clients?

Of course, these are just general questions. It is always good to ask about anything you’re hesitant about. It is always better to be too cautious when undertaking an interior paint project!
