If you’re a homeowner in Texas, you know that the weather can be unpredictable. From hot and humid summers to cold and wet winters, the Texas climate can take a toll on the exterior of your home. That’s why it’s important to keep your home’s exterior well-maintained, and a fresh coat of paint is a great way to do just that.
In this article, we’ll go over some tips and tricks for exterior painting in Texas, so you can keep your home looking great no matter what the weather throws your way.
Choose the Right Time of Year
The first thing to consider when painting the exterior of your home in Texas is the time of year. Ideally, you’ll want to paint when the weather is mild and dry, typically in the spring or fall. This will ensure that the paint dries properly and adheres well to the surface.
Prep the Surface
Before you start painting, it’s important to properly prep the surface. This includes cleaning the surface, repairing any damage, and priming the surface if necessary. For example, if you’re painting over a dark or stained surface, you may need to use a primer to help the new paint adhere.

First, you’ll want to choose a paint that is specifically formulated for exterior use, as these paints are designed to withstand the elements. You’ll also want to choose a color that complements your home’s architecture and the surrounding landscape.

Be Mindful of the Environment
Finally, it’s important to be mindful of the environment when painting the exterior of your home. This includes using low-VOC (volatile organic compound) paints, which are better for the environment and your health. You should also be careful not to paint near plants or bodies of water, as paint can be harmful to the environment.
