Pruning Back a Clematis

I am going to have my house painted and I have three really large clematis vines that reach very high. They are right up against the house and are going to have to come down. Will cutting them this early in the season harm them? Any other suggestions are appreciated.

Not sure if you are asking if cutting them down will harm them or cutting them down early. Not everyone does but cutting them down will not harm them at all. I have one I cut down every fall and it comes up more beautiful every summer. As far as if it is too early sorry don't know.
