At Monk’s, we choose just about every precaution to ensure a productive challenge. When it comes to exterior painting, we pay specific awareness to the weather. Temperature doesn’t generally cooperate and each and every calendar year the seasons are distinct. The most prevalent concerns we have about exterior painting and the weather are beneath.

“When do you halt portray outside?”

“How late in the year can you paint?

“When is it as well chilly to paint outside the house?”

There isn’t a certain day on the calendar when we stop portray outdoors.  Once it starts freezing overnight on a common foundation, we stop painting exteriors.  This is commonly all over Halloween, but we have stopped portray as early as Oct 15th and 1 12 months we virtually painted until Xmas.  If we see that a evening is likely to be far too cold, we deal with that day as a rain day and do not paint.

Paint Facts from the Sherwin-Williams Internet site

” If you have to have to paint outdoors with latex paint when temperatures are transferring up and down like a yo-yo, I suggest you use a person of the latex like Duration, Resilience, or SuperPaint. These merchandise can be utilized and will get rid of at reduced temperatures, as low as 35° F. Common latex-based paints will need temperatures earlier mentioned 60° F to overcome effectively. Warmer temperatures are needed to permit the latex particles to coalesce, or soften collectively. That is why the spring and slide can be tricky situations to paint outdoors. A common error is to paint when the daytime superior temperature will get higher than 60° F and the nighttime temperatures get significantly cooler for the reason that dew kinds on almost anything as quickly as the sun goes down. Even however the temperature was Alright at the time of application, the paint can end coalescing. This permits moisture to get into the uncured paint film enabling selected elements to occur to the surface area when the humidity evaporates, triggering surface area staining and doable adhesion challenges.”
