Fall is the ideal season for exterior painting

Did you know that Fall is the best time to paint. The temperatures are cooler, the air is dryer, containing very little humidity which is a key factor in successful paint application. During spring and summer wood is contracting and expanding in a short period of time due to frequent--even daily--temperature and humidity changes. In Fall, the temperature vary within a narrow range--from highs of 65 to lows of 40. Fall temperatures also help caulk, putty and paint dry faster--the way they are supposed to dry--creating tight bonds between the surface and the paint. Just food for thought. Happy Fall!
