The Best Time of Year to Paint Your House May Surprise You

We know your January is packed with stuff like eating clean for a week and finding joy in closet organization, but did you know you should add painting your entryway to your to-do list? Here’s why.

Wait, why exactly should I paint in winter? January and February are the prime months to paint your place. Cold, dry air makes wood shrink, revealing gaps between molding and other elements on your walls.

Any tips for how to fill these gaps? Fill them with caulk, then prime, then paint. (Nobody will ever know they’re there.)

Ugh, I don’t want to DIY. Call a painter. Often times pros are looking for work in winter months anyway and may cut you a discount (think 10 percent). Fingers crossed!
