Help, the House Painter Is Busy! What Do I Do?

Have you ever tried booking a professional painter for exterior painting during the summer? You may have discovered (like many before you) that the schedule is already booked into the fall. While this is definitely inconvenient, it is also a good sign. A quality house painter should be fully booked during the exterior painting season, and if they aren’t, you may want to think twice about hiring them.

House painting companies here in central Connecticut have a limited window of time when they can do exterior painting in late spring, summer, and early fall. This window also gets interrupted by rain and storms. If a company has a good reputation and they are well-established in the community, their exterior painting schedule is usually filled up months in advance. If this is not the case, it may indicate that the company has been found unreliable or ineffective in their work.

What Can I Do If the Painter Is Booked?

If all the good house painters in Connecticut seem to be booked for the summer, you can ask them if they have a waiting list in case of cancellations.

Another idea is to think about interior painting during the summer. Since your painter can’t do exterior painting in wet weather, they may keep a list of clients who want interior painting and don’t mind waiting for a rainy day to get it done.

Think Ahead and Book Early!

The best lesson to learn if your house painter is booked through the fall is to get on the list early next year! For example, we at Southington Painting usually begin scheduling our exterior painting projects months before the weather is sufficiently warm and dry. The farther in advance you contact us, the better chance there is that we can serve you in the upcoming exterior painting season.
