I live in Seattle and have collected several bids on residing my house in Hardie Plank and painting. I realize that the painting season is coming to an end, and am anxious about going forward with the project now, rather than just waiting until June. A comment from one of the contractors struck me as strange. He said that in Seattle, October is actually the best month to paint houses. This came from a guy who owned his own painting company. Is there any truth to this statement? He said this in early August, so he didn't really have an incentive to promote October at the time. Several other contractors have said it's no problem to paint in the fall. The proposed paint is Sherwin-Williams SuperPaint, which is supposed to be fine down to 35 degrees. But I'm really worried about the lower temps and increased moisture in October, as I have read that for the best paint job the night time temperatures should be above 50 and that there should not be any dew or moisture on the house. Am I getting a bunch of hooey from contractors who just want the work now, rather than the spring, at the expense of my paint job? Would I be better off waiting until June? Thanks!
