Benson Furniture Co., COMPLETE HOME FURNISHERS 188-1 90 South Main St. & Waterbury, Connecticut jT Five Strong Reasons for Fall PAINTING. 1. 1 In the fall, the surface is thoroughly dry. During the spring a anrface which needs repainting is sore to contain moisture and damp- ROSS Or IrOSt, ana ll Cannoi Or suctcssiunj I'a'unu mim 11 u uiurcuglMJ dried out. . - - 2. When the wood is dry, it absorbs more of the paint. The paint penetrates deeper into the wood, therefore get firmer hold on it, giv ing the paint coating greater tenacity or holding qualities. 3. Paint cannot be applied as successfully in damp, cloudy or un. settled weather as in warm, sunny weathr, in the fall . the weather is more settled and uniform and is warmer, therefore it is an excellent tiror for painting. . ' " 4. A house needs its protecting coat of paint more in the winter months than at any other time. A houv. in need of repainting should never be allowed to go over the winter without this protection. 8. It is easier to keep moisture awd dampness ont by applying a 'coat of paint when the surface is dfy, than It is to get moisture or damp Hess oat of the wood when you want to apply paint.
