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!
