When Is The Best Time To Get An Estimate For Exterior Painting in Ottawa
The best time of year to get an estimate for painting the exterior of a house is between the months of April to October. The exterior house painting in Ottawa season is a short one due to our long cold winters. It is not possible to do exterior painting estimates during the winter months due to snow and ice build up making it unsafe for the painters to walk around the property to inspect the condition of the exterior surfaces.
Painting Contractors in Ottawa need to be able to access the exterior of the house from front to back, assess the condition of the exterior areas to be painted and to be able to recommend if there needs to be any replacement of rotted wood or broken seals or gaps in need of proper attention by sealing and caulking them. This walk about the property is best when there are no snow banks or ice that painters can slip and injure themselves.
We understand and appreciate that planning ahead and preparing for any budget restrictions may be helpful by getting an estimate in the middle of the winter months, but we also appreciate your understanding the difficulties that arise from trying to price the exterior any other time than between the months of April to October. Our calendar for exterior home painting fills up quickly as exterior painting in Ottawa can only happen when the weather is cooperating.

We had the pleasure of working with PG PAINT & DESIGN on a top to bottom interior painting of our newly acquired 85 year old house. It was a lot of work which we needed completed in a relatively short time with a lot of it to be done in and around refinishing of floors, replacement of carpeting and while we were moving in. All of it accomplished on time and budget. Pino Germano is a true professional – meticulous with amazing attention to detail the quality of work including unforeseen plaster repairs was excellent.
