Why Winter is a Great Time to Paint Home or Business Interiors

Why Winter is a Great Time to Paint Home or Business Interiors

Winter may not seem like the most ideal time to paint a home or business's interior, but there are several advantages for the astute home or business owner. Below, we discuss several of winter interior painting's upsides.

Good Spot on the Calendar...and Maybe Some Great Deals!

In spring, summer and fall months it can be hard to find a good spot on a painting contractor's calendar. You might have to wait awhile to get that project completed that you really wanted done yesterday. In the winter, customers have better options. If a customer wants it done quickly, like in December, it's quite a bit easier to schedule. If, however, you want to schedule for February, that's easy, too. You also might run into some great deals in the winter that wouldn't normally be available in the spring or summer for interior painting!

Faster Drying Times

The summer months are humid, especially in New Jersey. The Northeast's winter months, however, are not. That means the winter air will dry your interior paint job more quickly than the air in the summer months.

Fortunately, most paints are very low-VOC and emit very little paint odors. Even though it might be cold, we’re still able to crack the windows or run an exhaust fan to help eliminate any odors and to speed up the drying process.

Projects Completed Faster

Yet another great upside to the winter interior paint job is that painters can do their work longer inside than they can when painting exteriors in the summer months. As long as you don't mind the painters being around the home or business a bit longer as they complete the day's work, your interior paint job will come to completion that much more quickly.

Great Lighting

Part of the beauty of painting in winter: The light is terrific. A sunny, snow-covered landscape casts wonderful light that illuminates almost an entire room, except for those little, dark corners. Even when there is no snow, very cold days are almost always clear and sun-filled. As for choosing colors, your best bet is to get color chips or even a little pint sample of paint and see how they look in a sun-drenched room during the day and how they look with lights on in the evening. A color will look different depending on the lighting.

Fortunately, most paints are very low-VOC and emit very little paint odors. Even though it might be cold, we’re still able to crack the windows or run an exhaust fan to help eliminate any odors and to speed up the drying process.

People happy with our services

One of the very best you will find in this area. Highly competent, punctual and with an aim to please. Spectrum has painted most of the interior of my home and most recently, my large outdoor deck. When they are here, I can relax knowing they will treat my home like it's their own. There's an added comfort knowing that there's a responsive team leader present on each job to whom I can address any questions or concerns. Don't go for the low-end companies. Price is what you pay, but lasting value is what you get.

I have used Spectrum Painting time and time again over the years. They were fantastic in 2013 in a very tight time window, painting the entire interior of our home before we moved in right near the holidays. Each of the painters were expert, efficient and hardworking and perhaps most importantly trustworthy. I have always felt safe with Spectrum's staff. Then we used Rich and his company in 2015 for our exterior and deck. For that job it was Jose and his crew that did a phenomenal job preparing the siding and trim and then painting thoroughly. Many know that it's the preparation for paint that creates a lasting quality finish. Additionally, as others have mentioned, the painters are very capable but importantly always clean up after their day. Sometimes the floor is cleaner than when they started! Lastly I just called for a few touch ups and Oldemar, who's painted here on many occasions, was dispatched. He completed a tremendous amount in his two days here...working diligently to get my long list completed in a timely manner. Again he is an exemplary example of Rich's best...he managed some light carpentry and prepared each surface will great skill. And now my walls, trim and doors look like brand new again! For the best result you need to go with a tried and true company...so check out Spectrum Painting.

Spectrum Painting was recommended to us by our fence company when we recently installed a picket fence.. They did a great job. They arrived punctually, were highly professional and made sure that the job was done properly. I would definitely recommend them and use them again.

Both Jessica and Shaun were a pleasure to work with. I had 16 shutters and 3 doors painted. The price was absolutely reasonable. Shaun did an amazing job doing the entire job himself. He was clean, friendly, and worked super-fast getting the entire job done in one day. Highly recommend Spectrum for painting.

We just had our deck stained and are beyond satisfied. Everyone from the young ladies that set up the estimates to the crew that does the work were very professional and friendly. The 2 gentleman worked hard until the project was absolutely complete. Our deck looks fantastic! Thank you and we look forward to doing more business with you.
