Default Liquid Mask in Northern Climate

Anyone have first hand experience with liquid mask in cold northern climates? (Canada) I know Aaron uses it a lot, but he's freakin' surrounded by palm trees.

I'd like to know how it performs as a long term primer up here?

NOT a popular product. I bought a gallon at SW. (they only had one gallon) Rep says its not a big seller. (probably price)

What do you mean "long term"? I've never seen it used exterior if that's what you mean. I'm sure people do it, I just don't remember ever hearing about it.

Is good stuff when used properly. The cost can really be offset with the speed. Mainly on French doors is where I see it used the most.

Even If I have French doors I never spray it-- I just dont want to use it as on the entire surface as a primer. Not that I've had bad experiences with it on bare wood, but I just don't trust it as a primer. I usually brush it thick in one coat on the panes, wiping any globs that might get onto the muntins with a dry cloth. Then I'm free to spray prime and two coats.

I've never tried usin git outdoors in cold temperatures. I guess I would be glad to know if it works well as a primer on bare wood. It could change how I use the product.

Most french doors are already primed..Many have plastic already on the glass.You need to give the GC crap for buying un-primed french doors.. haha

Yes, long term, yes out doors. (in appropriate temps of course)

Older Craftsman style homes with lots of rails in the windows.

Not using it as a 'primer' per say anywhere other than its intended purpose (windows), but it would be the first layer after the rails have been scraped and sanded.

...and that's my question. Its says its formulated to be applied to bare wood. (not if a stain is intended)

Just curious if its priming qualities.

Just give it a light sand with a sponge before spraying the window if you're worried about the priming qualities....I usually spot prime with a good acrylic primer first on the bare wood before using the liquid mask on the windows.I'm not really into new construction,but I usually just brush the stain on new wood intead of spraying.

Liquid mask is used if you have to spray out a whole house.

Used it years ago, had problems removing it. I love the 3M maskers.

used it to do a bunch windows here in Chicagoland area. Most of this was done around Thanksgiving and it was cold outside.
Of course, we were using it inside and didn't have any issues. As advertised.

As I remember it works best on the removal end in the shade. Where if it was in sun /hot it could be a bear. I have used it once on a repaint work great. Still looks great the last time I drive by it at 35mph
