The last few days has reminded us all the rainy season is upon us and summer is near. Hot summer days and wet afternoons can affect some of the improvement projects on your property. Common sense tells us that you shouldn’t paint the exterior in the rain. Beyond the obvious, it’s essential to know when the optimal time is to start a paint project once the storm is gone.
We thought it's a great time to share a few tips to help make your project as seamless as possible during the upcoming months:
Schedule early. If you know that you have a project coming up, let us know your timelines. As a family-operated business, we do our best to accommodate, and we will schedule our workload accordingly.
Avoid shortcuts. Paint projects should not start until 12 hours after rainfall. This ensures that paint dries properly. Paint on a moist substrate can cause bubbling and poor finishes. We understand deadlines, but we do not want to sacrifice quality.
Communication during the project is essential. If we see rain in the forecast, we will schedule our team accordingly. Most importantly, we will communicate what is happening and why along the way.
We don’t like it either but…expect delays. As much as we try to adjust schedules, we are all at the mercy of Mother Nature. The best thing you can do is to build a buffer into your time frame.
More than anything, we wanted to provide a quick reminder to let us know at Complete Structure Painting your summer paint plans so that we can work together to keep your property looking great and help you keep it protected from moisture.
