6 Tips For Summer House Painting in Sydney

With summer just around the corner, you might be thinking about turning your attention to home improvements. The holiday season is a time for catching up with friends and family, and a good time to get the place in order to be in the lead up to Christmas and New Year. For some, this means getting the overall out of the cupboard and getting your hands dirty, for others it means getting on the line and calling a painting company.

Whatever option you choose, you should be aware that idea painting conditions are when the atmospheric temperature is between 15 - 30 degrees and the humidity is around 20 - 70%. Excessive moisture in the air during winter and spring causes paint to dry slowly. Extreme, sunny weather with less humidity causes paint dry faster than usual, forming blisters on the painting. Hence, it is best to start up painting Sydney houses at the beginning of the summer

However, Sydney painters should be mindful of extreme heat during the summer season. During summer in Sydney, painters can work on surfaces that are too hot to work on. This causes paint to dry too quickly. Also be mindful of the fact that painting is tough work in excessive heat dehydration and heat stroke is quite common so always take care.

To get best out of your painting efforts in summer, you may consider following painting tips:

  • If you are painting Sydney houses during summer, it is ideal to start early morning or late evening. This will mean you avoid being exposed to the direct sunlight during the afternoon.
  • Painters in Sydney are advised to start the roof early morning to avoid the direct sunlight and to avoid the extreme heat on the surface.
  • To get the work going throughout the day, Sydney painters can follow the shadow. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west, so it’s advisable to paint in this way and avoid the sun.
  • Given unpredicted weather patterns, painters are advised to keep an eye on potential sudden rain. Avoid painting after and before a rain.
  • Difficulties arise due to the wind as well. Residential painters should refrain from painting during windy times too. Dust and other particles in the wind can stick to the fresh paint.

Spending time to prepare the surface prior to painting also helps to bring out best results. Residential painters may come across a variety of issues on surfaces to clear. Wash dirty and dusty surfaces with water, and let it dry before painting. Scrape out all blistered paint and remove mould on the surface using wire brush or scraper.

Referring to an expert’s advice always helps. You could consult and hire a residential painting service provider, and schedule your work for days where there is little or no breeze, and humidity. And be mindful to read manufacturer’s recommendations and surface preparation instructions provided on the paint bucket.
