At Monk’s, we take every single precaution to assure a productive project. When it arrives to exterior painting, we pay specific attention to the weather conditions.

“When do you halt portray exterior?”
“How late in the period can you paint?
“When is it too cold to paint outdoors?”
There isn’t a distinct working day on the calendar when we quit painting outdoors. Once it starts freezing overnight on a common basis, we end painting exteriors. This is ordinarily close to Halloween, but we have stopped portray as early as October 15th and just one calendar year we almost painted right until Christmas. If we see that a night time is likely to be also chilly, we handle that working day as a rain day and do not paint.
We use Duration Paint from Sherwin-Williams and Aura Paint from Benjamin-Moore.
Paint Specifics from the Sherwin-Williams Web page
” If you need to have to paint outside the house with latex paint when temperatures are relocating up and down like a yo-yo, I suggest you use just one of the latex like Period, Resilience, or SuperPaint. These solutions can be applied and will overcome at lessen temperatures, as lower as 35° F. Conventional latex-based mostly paints require temperatures above 60° F to heal properly. Warmer temperatures are necessary to allow the latex particles to coalesce, or melt together. That is why the spring and tumble can be challenging instances to paint outside the house. A prevalent oversight is to paint when the daytime significant temperature receives earlier mentioned 60° F and the nighttime temperatures get substantially cooler because dew forms on practically almost everything as quickly as the sun goes down. Even nevertheless the temperature was Okay at the time of application, the paint can quit coalescing. This permits dampness to get into the uncured paint film letting certain substances to arrive to the surface when the dampness evaporates, triggering floor staining and attainable adhesion complications.”
