When it comes to exterior home painting, you probably already know that spring and summer are the best times of year to undertake this kind of work. But you may not realize why your paint contractor is watching the forecast as your scheduled house painting project draws closer. Here’s how the weather can affect your plans.
It May Get Too Cold at Night
When the temperatures drop too low at night, it can affect the way the paint dries, leaving the finish flawed. Most exterior house paint isn’t affected unless nighttime lows sink below 50 degrees. Depending on the type of paint used, it’s possible that you don’t need to be concerned unless the temperatures reach 40 degrees or so.
It May Get Too Hot During the Day
A heat wave where daytime temps exceed 90 degrees may also lead to poor paint performance. The high temperatures may cause blistering of any painted surfaces that are still wet.
It May Be Too Humid
Not only does paint have trouble drying properly when the air around it is too moist, that extra humidity may also affect the wood surfaces that have been painted. As wood swells in high humidity, the paint may show blemishes as it dries.
