Autumn Home Improvements
Painting is a home improvement project that seems made for Autumn. A fresh coat of paint or a new colour scheme around the house can give a home an entirely new look and feel. But paint can be pungent and the aromas may last if it’s applied at a time of year when it can’t dry while the windows are wide open.
Paint fumes inside a home can make the home uninhabitable, but painting at a time of year like the Autumn, when you can keep the windows open during and after the project, can help air the home out.
But interior painting isn’t the only painting project homeowners can tackle in the fall. Many exterior paints are temperature-sensitive and need the temperature outside to be above 5C. Paint that freezes won’t dry properly, and homeowners might be left with a costly and unsightly mistake on their hands.
