Hey guys, I am new to real-estate investing. On my first flip I am looking at is in the Seattle area. Anyone that live or flip in the Paciﬁc NW, this time of the year were rains a LOT.
Does your project hold you back for exterior work?
Ex. Roof, siding and paint..
Hey @Juan Melendez , I do rehab for one of my properties now.
For sure rain slows things down. That said, in the last couple of days it did not rain where my rehab is, so I was able to do two coats for the exterior paint over last couple of days.
Today it rained, so we are on hold for painting the outside trims, and switched to doing the prep work inside.
This is just one of the downsides of doing rehab in the winter. You will just need to keep checking the weather forecast and decide if you will be working on the interior or exterior of the house based on the forecast.
Hello, I am not familiar with the Pacific Northwest winters however I do paint outside every fall during the Colorado monsoon seasons. We use Sherwin Wiliams Resilience because it can be applied shortly after and before any rain, and can be applied down to 35°. I would just check in with any local painting contractor or paint supply company to find out what exterior painting is like in that area during winter months.
@Sherief Elbassuoni thank you for your answer!
@Steve Scheid I appreciate your response!
@Steve Scheid , yep, I like the resilience paint from Sherwin Wiliams. I also love the "Emerald Rain Refresh", but it is pretty expensive. The Emerald has self-cleaning features, so dirt and dust get washed out of the paint every time it rains. The only downside is its price.
