Default 28 degrees and exterior painting

A home we thought we had scheduled is in the process of getting painted by some other company. I am laughing every time I drive by. Not one day has it been above 45 degrees outside let alone the siding temp. 3 out of 5 of the guys worked for me and Carly 2 years ago.

On a positive note, you might be getting called to repaint it in the next year or so.

It's great when other companies do applied research that you can learn from and don't have to share any risks . I'd like to know what it looks like in 1 month, 1 year and 2 years.

I turned one down last November because of temps for a experienced custom builder who I really want to maintain business with. He got someone else and in talking with him this spring, he said, with much respect in his voice, I was the first painter he knew to ever stick to my guns about cold weather. Still working with him this year

Last year we pushed it into November and first job this year was going to fix the mess that froze then thawed.

I avoid painting exteriors when the Temps get below 50. But occasionally the situation arises when I do paint in colder weather. Even though the manufacturer recommended temps for a proper curing aren't present, if the paint drys before temps go below freezing it usually turns out ok.

It all depends on the substrate. Painted wood/hardi I wouldn't want to do it but it could be okay. Exposed wood I wouldn't touch, and stucco I would do if the Temps didn't drop to much.

Also depends on your product. Some no less than fifty, some down as low as 35. I have painter friends who have had to go back and wash the frost film out of their paint because it didn't cure properly. It is a big deal if your not careful.
