Any work that you plan to have done on the outside of your house may seem like a warmer weather project. That’s certainly true of some of them, such as painting. If you plan on repainting the exterior of your home, you will definitely need to wait until summer.
If you’re looking at adding exterior shutters to your home or even replacing old, worn out, beaten down looking ones with new, wood shutters, you don’t actually have to wait for the weather to turn warm. You can get that done now.
Winter doesn’t affect exterior shutter work like it does painting.
Paint has to be applied when the surface and air temperature are above a certain mark. If you had your home painted during winter, you would expect a lot of blotching, dripping, and just a plain old mess. In other words, it would look like a disaster.
When adding new exterior shutters or replacing the old, vinyl ones the previous owner thought looked so great, it’s just a matter of installing hardware and securing them to the exterior portion of the house. Sure, it would be cold for the installers, but when you drive around heading to work, to the store, or just out for the afternoon, you’ll likely see a lot of people working outside. It’s part of the world and just because the snow is falling with the temperatures, that doesn’t mean you can’t have certain jobs done during this time of the year.
This is actually a great time of the year to look into interior and exterior shutters. With fewer people looking (because they’re not thinking about it), you won’t have to worry about scheduling the install and you may be able to find some great deals.
