With cooler temperatures approaching, many homeowners in Chevy Chase, MD or Bethesda, MD may conclude that home painting projects are not possible in the fall. It may be surprising, but autumn and spring are the best seasons for exterior painting, as long as it’s not raining. During these months, the temperatures are milder, humidity is lower, and the sun isn’t as strong, making it an ideal setting for sprucing up your home’s exterior and reviving your curb appeal. Here are a few of our favorite fall exterior painting projects.
Touch Up Exterior Trim
Exterior trim is easy to forget, but it has the potential to make a big impact, especially when it looks great. Consider taking on this exterior painting project by touching up your trim this autumn; not only will it freshen up the overall appearance of your house – it’s also cost-effective.
Update Garage Door Painting
My expert exterior painters at Benchmark Painting & Carpentry know that a garage with peeling paint drastically influences a home’s first impression. If your garage door is peeling or faded, it’s time to get out your paintbrush and tackle your next home painting job. We know you’ll be happy with the fresh, polished, updated look – and so will your across-the-street neighbors!
Paint Front Steps
Halloween is just around the corner, and soon there will be lots of company on your front porch. My exterior painters and I love the way front steps look when they’re covered with a fresh coat of paint – and many homeowners are embracing unique and fun colors, which helps make an impression on any houseguest. Sometimes, a little paint can make the biggest difference.
Brighten Up Shutters
So often, interior painting is emphasized, but when exterior painting is done well, it brings a drastic transformation to your home. Have you ever noticed how a home is changed when the shutters are cleanly painted? Take initiative and brighten up your shutters with a few coatings of paint; your neighbors will take a double-take when they drive by.
