Five Strong Reasons for Fall
1. In the fall, the surface is thoroughly dry. During the spring a
surface which needs repainting is sure to contain moisture and damp
ness or frost, and it cannot be successfully painted until it has thoroughly
2. When t'.ie wood is dry. absorbs more of the paint. The paint
penetrates deeper into the wood, therefore gets a firmer hold on it, giv
lng 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 weather, in the fall the weather is
more settled and uniform and is warmer, therefore it is an excellent time
4. A house needs its protecting coat of paint more, in the winter
months than at any other time. A hous in need of repainting should
never be allowed to go over the winter without this protection.
5. It is easier to keep moisture and dampness out by applying a
coat of paint when the surface is dy, than it is to get moisture or damp
Bess out of the wood when you want to apply paint.
