Time Is Of The Essence for Year End Paint Projects
Fall is officially here. With cooler weather for most of the country the countdown to the holidays seems to start earlier with each passing year. As we approach the final quarter of the year this is your friendly paint reminder.
- Exterior Painting has weather restrictions
- Now is the time to prepare your stores for the holiday rush.
Temperatures are ideal for exterior painting but that window of opportunity is shrinking with each passing day. There is a strict range of temperatures when it comes to exterior painting. When painting outside, it should be at least 50 degrees fahrenheit, and drop no lower than 32 degrees at night. Even if it is warm out during the day, the paint won’t form a solid layer if it gets too cool at night.
Paint needs several days to cure and to form a strong bond with the wall it’s being applied to. As the temperature drops in these next coming months, dew can form on the surfaces and cause the water in the paint to evaporate too slowly, meaning you will have streaks in your layers of paint. This also means that it is more prone to cracking over time. Colder temperatures and moisture on the surface can also cause staining and attract mildew over time.
“It seems that every year we encounter challenges with exterior paint programs coming to us at the same time that mother nature decides it’s time to change the season.” Says Dave Knoche, EVP of Sales. “ Exterior coatings not only need proper ambient temperatures, but they also need proper temperatures for surfaces and dry times. We encourage all of our client partners to be forward looking as fall approaches to get ahead of the inevitable, cold weather is coming.”
