The best time to paint exterior walls is during summer. This is the season with less rainfall and sunny weather is perfect for drying paint faster.

These days’ paints are made with special technology that allows for quick drying, no harsh chemicals, and many eco-friendly aspects. Painting in the late afternoon is also better than starting in the morning. This is to avoid any dew from the evening and early morning.   

How much does it cost?

Painting can be expensive. Special paint colour mixtures can increase the price. Some paints also have special features such as being weather-resistant, mould proof, and easy to clean.

When you opt to do it yourself, you will also need to buy brushes, rollers, drop sheet, extenders, and a ladder. However, when hiring a professional painter, the quote will include, labour and everything else. It’s always good to compare quotes and look to see if the company you’re hiring is a reputable one.
