Hello winter, goodbye summer!
If you live in Edmonton, then you may be just as upset at this crazy winter weather as we are. It’s September after all, and there is still so much summer renovating to do!
While you may not be able to paint the shed or redo your shutters at the moment (let’s hope for a few warm days ahead in October), there are certainly still a few perks to winter interior painting.
If you’ve been putting off the kitchen paint job, freshening up your bathroom, or restyling your bedroom, then winter is the perfect time to get that done!
Sounds crazy, we know!
Well, keep reading!
Today, The Repaint Specialists are going to share with you why winter is actually a really great time to get your interior painting projects done, and what it means for your exterior paint projects!

3 Great Reasons To Paint Your Interior This Winter
If you spent any time looking around hardware stores this summer, you might have been crunching up the number only to find that your newest paint endeavor was going to cost you a little more than you expected. If you want the job done right, then you are going to have to invest in quality paints like Behr, Benjamine Moore, Cloverdale, Sherwin-Williams, etc. Unfortunate, premium paints, well worth it, can also, mean premium price. Luckily, we know a secret! The summertime is typically a slow time for hardware stores and paint contractors alike. This means, if your savvy, you can probably cut yourself a good deal, and save a bit of money buying paint and hiring contractors in the winter!
Faster Drying Time
While there are many reasons painting in the summer is ideal, winter has the lovely perk of a faster drying time! Less time equals less money! Summer air tends to be humid, and the more moisture in the air, the longer you have to wait for the paint to dry. That holds up jobs, adds time to tasks, and generally makes an interior painting job a bit more expensive than it usually would be. But in the winter, with just a small crack of the window, those problems tend to disappear.
PRO TIP: Worried about the cold? Try closing the door to that room, and placing a rolled up towel against the bottom to seal in the cold air, and stop it from spreading a chill to other rooms in the house!
Bigger Summer Budget
Finally, there is one of the best advantages of all! You may be having a hard time swallowing the delay of your summer painting, but The Repaint Specialists are all about silver linings. Think about it this way, by getting your interior projects done in the winter; you will be saving time and money for a bigger, better, more thought out exterior paint job that will wow everyone int he neighborhood. Take that Debera down the road who rushed into that exterior paint job which looks totally fabulous, but cost a fortune! Feel better?
The point is, all this cooler weather doesn’t mean you have to cancel your home painting plans, it just means prioritizing your project order, so you get the best bang for your buck!
