Winter is in full swing: this is the ideal time to book a painter, especially for the outside of your house. Outdoor painters are busiest from April to October: in that limited season, the best painters are booked up months in advance. That is why February is an ideal month to request an exterior paint job: then you can still choose among different skilled painters and execution dates. That is doubly true this year due to the lockdown. Many Customers only book an outdoor painter once the lockdown has ended. They risk having to wait months for a good painter.
