Have you ever considered exactly when the best month is to get your house painted? Let’s look at what makes July such a great time to paint in your home!

Painting the exterior and interior of your house offers several benefits such as protection from the elements, added protection for the wood against rotting and insects, and brings up the value of your home! 

It is clear why it is essential and beneficial to paint your home, but when is the best time to do so? Based on our experience and knowledge, July is the perfect month to get a fresh coat of paint for your home. Here’s why:

  • Temperature – One reason July is the perfect month to get your home painted is because of the summer heat. The warm weather remains stable in the summer, providing painters with one of the best times for applying new coats of paint. The summer heat makes the paint faster to dry, speeding up the process slightly. Also, key windows can be kept open in the summer, allowing for optimal aeration of the paint. Although the paints Basurto uses will bond any time of the year and produce less fumes than others, July and August are particularly great months for the process.

  • Avoid the wet months – Rain can be an issue when planning to paint your home. That is why planning ahead and choosing a dry month, such as July, offers the optimal conditions for getting a proper paint job!


  • School’s Out – With no need to drop the kids off at school, there’s less chaos in your mornings. One less errand to run might be just the slack you need to add house painting into your plans. In many cases, your kids can help with the set-up for a licensed painting outfit by moving some of the lighter items out of the way into other rooms. In kitchens, they can be especially helpful to moving your dishes and pans out of cupboards and into an adjacent room.
