How do you guy's change your daily work to adjust to such hight temps? What about, any ideas on doing a better paint job when it is hot. How about those south and west walls that need two coats of paint? Anything you can think of that could help the suffering.

i work with the sun, meaning i stick to whatever side is shady.
in situations where i will be working in one area for a while and have the sun beating down, i will throw 2 ladders up on either side of me and strap a tarp to it to make shade, its worth the 5 minutes of set up.

What about something like this in an area you will spending time? Probably more hassle moving it, especially around bushes.
I use one in the yard for parties, 10 x 10, 100 bucks, very easy to set up.
Think of the advertising possibility!

I do hope you all know that you are not supposed to apply paint in temperatures that high. Surface temp over 100 is a no no for sure, you can get fever blisters all over the place plus if the paint drys too fast it can not cure properly and fail prematurely.

those canopies are great, i use mine on the beach all the time. On a job site it would be good for, say a carpenter who is going to go back to his saw constantly...it shades directly below so it makes for a good work station...However, they are not really tall or just large enough to cast a shadow as high as the first level of a house. Putting up a tarp like i mentioned casts the shadow against the house rather than on the ground....for the $100 the canopy costs you could get a bunch of tarps and probably get more bang for your buck...as long as you have some extra ladders to strap too. You could always clip it to the roof and tie down on the ground too....Doing this above the first level of a house might be tougher, but its been done...and man, that shade not only makes things cooler and easier on you...but you get more work done too.

gotcha

Get some cheaper 24' extention poles, strap shade cloth to them, lean them up on the house and attach to gutters or roof. Feels so good!

Guys....I'm in Florida! It's always hot. You just keep painting. You do get used to it. The worst thing you can do is to go in and out of air conditioning. It makes it feel that much hotter. Keep lots of liquids with you. Try to work the shade. Start early but eventually you will have to do that sunny side. We have a couple of barrel tile roofs coming up next week. No getting out of the sun there!!!

Gee! Thanks!

I live in a area, 100 is on a cool summer day. It's been 115 for the past week or so. even the nights only cool down to 85 or 90. what we do is start at 5:45 work until 1:30, we don't stop other than water breaks. I don't like to see my guys drink sugar so I encourage to drink water only. We try and work in around the shade as it moves around the house. setting up a tent of some sort is out of the question unless you are going to be in 1 spot all day. but for the most part we are moving from spot to spot rather quickly

Where on earth do you guys get some of your facts!!!
I have painted when it was so hot you could literally watch steam rise from the surface as you paint.

Ya, I paint in some extreme weather and it has not effected the integrity of the coating. Just can be hard to work with.

I usually try to do the south and west walls first when I get there in the morning, and then if they are dry to touch, I hit the them again and move to the back sides. The thing I try to avoid is spraying colors in the sun, because for one it takes way more paint, and you can get flashing because you can't move your ladders fast enough to keep a wet edge.I also use long extention for my spray gun, and use a bigger tip.

I have also found that once my body get hot it really slows me down, so I try to stay as cool as long as I can, because once I'm done I'm done.

/\I hear you man! When your body or mind shuts off, it is best to find a productive way to end the day. I had one such day on friday, not painting but carpentry. Day was blown and trying to hurry I damn near cut a finger off when the saw kicked back on me. Got a graze wound on my finger.. work is not more important than your health. There is always another day. Drink a ton and eat light muh man
