Most Floridians breathe a sigh of relief as fall begins to take the hot summer edge off. The kids are back in school, routines have been reestablished, and the cooler air inspires us to start thinking about home improvement projects that need to get done. The challenge is prioritizing the do-list and managing the timeline with the holidays looming just around the corner.
Repainting can provide a huge impact on transforming and updating your home, and should be at the top of the priority list. Repainting the exterior will amp up your curb appeal, and has the power to take an older, weathered-looking home and make it look brand-new. Updating the interior colors is an excellent way to create a wow-factor for holiday guests and social gatherings.
However, if you want to make sure your project is done before the holidays, NOW is the right time to begin the process. There are some important considerations when managing the timeline for a painting project. The number one delay in repainting is indecision over paint colors. The final color choice is up to you – so don’t wait to start looking at paint swatches and narrowing down what you like. If the options are too overwhelming, we would be happy to help you make that decision with an expert color consultation and sampling.
Another key factor in managing the timeline is the HOA approval process. If you live in one of Central Florida’s charming neighborhoods that is governed by an HOA, reach out to them to determine if an architectural form needs to be submitted. Are there specific HOA-approved colors that you have to choose from? If you need to go through the approval process, how often does the HOA meet, and how long should you expect to wait before a decision is made?
Weather is another element out of our control that can delay the process – especially for exterior projects. Florida’s daily deluge will hopefully start to relax its regularity now that summer is over. Even so, delays due to inclement weather should be provided for.
