What are the best months for painting in the Eastern Cape?

The best months to do painting projects  in the Eastern Cape is in June/July. Best before the summer rain and heat arrives. Humidity and high moisture levels can severely affect the paint’s endurance so now is a good time to paint the exterior of your home as the low humidity will ensure that the paint cures faster.

Check your local weather forecasts to determine which days will be suitable to start your painting projects on and when the temperatures will be at their highest because you will need to consider in ample drying time. Paint takes longer to dry in cooler conditions, so adequate drying time is required before temperatures begin to drop at night. If temperatures drop too quickly in the evening, then dew can potentially form, and too much moisture on an uncured exterior can cause unwanted issues, such as, adhesion concerns and potential staining.

Getting a painting contractor during the winter season will be a simple task as now is usually a quiet time for the industry. Ensure your contractor uses the right type of paint and always keep your painting supplies stored at room temperature during the night so that you get smooth results from a flawless application.

Check painted surfaces properly so you can get the best advice at your local DIY stores before purchasing paint etc.
