When Is the Best Time to Paint Indoors? 

Painting indoors can be done year-round, offering you the flexibility to update your home or business whenever it’s most convenient. At Canyon Painters, we recommend scheduling your indoor painting projects during the winter months. Summertime is our busiest season for exterior projects, leading to wait times as long as 4 to 6 weeks for interior work. During the winter months we move indoors, making it our slower season. This means you can get on our schedule more quickly and avoid long wait times. Throughout the winter, Canyon Painters offers generous discounts on all indoor painting projects to help keep the schedule full. We also have extra big specials during the holiday weeks, including the weeks of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s, making it an ideal time to refresh your interiors with significant savings.

When Is the Best Time to Paint Outdoors?

Ideally, we look for daytime temperatures that are consistently above 50° for any exterior painting.

Do Rollers or Brushes Work Best? 

When it comes to painting your walls, choosing the right tool can make all the difference. Paint rollers and paint brushes both have their unique benefits, so it’s important to understand when to use each one. Paint brushes are great for precision and detail work, such as cutting in around corners or edges. They also tend to give a smoother finish than rollers can provide. On the other hand, paint rollers are perfect for covering large areas quickly and efficiently. They also work well for textured or uneven surfaces, as they can easily apply paint in the crevices. The team at Canyon Painters will use a mixture of both rollers and brushes to complete your interior paint job. 

Is It Better to Brush and Roll or Spray?

When it comes to interior painting projects, brushing and rolling are often the preferred methods over spraying. A common misconception is that spraying equates to higher quality, but this isn’t necessarily the case. Spraying is typically used for production efficiency, making it ideal for large exterior surfaces where speed and uniform coverage are crucial. 

For interiors, however, brushing and rolling offer several advantages. These methods allow for precise application, ensuring the paint only goes on intended surfaces and stays off your furniture and fixtures, resulting in a cleaner and more controlled process. Brushing and rolling also provide a smooth, consistent finish with better adhesion, making sure that paint covers all nooks and crannies effectively. While spraying might be suitable for large exterior projects, brushing and rolling deliver the detail and cleanliness needed for a high-quality interior finish.
