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.

This is the third project that Spectrum completed at our home, and it is with great pleasure to say that this was another PERFECT experience from beginning to end! We wish to thank the entire Spectrum team for their professionalism, knowledge, and excellent workmanship!! They are always courteous, reliable, and very experienced. Once again Rich was very helpful and attentive to our needs for this project. Pawel was our crew leader, and he was amazing! He was so meticulous, and he took great pride in his work. A job well done! Thank you again for your exemplary service. We definitely look forward to having Spectrum complete future projects at our home!

I just had a few rooms painted by Rich's great team, Rafael and Marcin. They were extremely pleasant and courteous. They spent time carefully prepping the area. Their work was absolutely flawless. There was one area of the ceiling that was haphazardly patched before - a cap screwed into a former light fixture that looked terrible and I asked for them to somehow make it disappear. I couldn't believe when I walked in...you couldn't tell there was ever a cap or fixture or any spackling/hiding: like it never happened. I highly recommended Spectrum!

Raul was excellent to work with. Meticulous in getting the job done right. The crew was great, clean and careful and did a great job.

We hired Spectrum to paint, wallpaper, remove wallpaper, build a closet, remove popcorn ceilings, and other related jobs that came up. Each day I was greeted with a smile and handshake from the crew leader and his team. At the end of the day, their enthusiasm was as strong as it was in the morning. Just an amazing group of dedicated, hardworking people. They finished our condo in record time, covered our floors and furniture, what little we had. I am sorry that we have to stop at 5 stars. They deserve at least double that number! We moved into a condo and they were careful also about the common areas, putting down tarps and board to keep the dust off the rugs and not track onto the carpet. The building staff was so appreciative!

We used Spectrum Painting to paint our laundry room, kitchen, living room, office, powder room, sitting room, 2 story foyer and hall, 2 bedrooms, master bedroom, ceilings in kitchen, living room, and foyer, 3 car garage, shutters on 13 windows, and the front door with 2 sidelights. In addition to the walls being painted all doors, baseboards, window frames, crown molding, and other trim were included. Furthermore, we had a wallpaper border removed and crown molding added in the master bedroom. The paint job took less than a week and turned out great! We could not be happier with all of the colors we chose (with the help of Pam) and the way the it turned out. Overall, the sales team, including Rich Lauretta and John Mangiafreno, the project manager Rafael, and the design consultant Pam Steinhilber were all very professional and a pleasure to work with.

Spectrum was very professional and they did a great job with every aspect of the job. They were friendly and helpful, had ideas for future projects and worked quickly and really took care in the staining of the deck. Everyone on the team was courteous.
