Hi all. The internet believes this is the most knowledgeable group of painters on the web, so where better to join.
I'm a veteran of forums (professional and otherwise) but new to the professional painters world.
I'm the 'office manager' of my husbands very small (3 man) paint business.
I joined to ask all the 'stupid' questions he's doesn't want to or have time to ask for himself.

For instance:
Can he paint latex outside today. low 43 high 61 chance of rain tonight at 10:00pm

Welcome!

Read the product manufacturer's TDS (Technical Data Sheet). All that information should be in there. Despite this being a professional contractor site, I would rather rely on measurable and qualified information from the manufacturer then accept subjective answers. Particularly, since you will find that some painters may claim that the paint did just fine at 40 degrees, because it looked good.

Thank you for the reply and I think you're right about the manufacturers supplied information. I'm also here for the practical knowledge too because I think the manufactures cover their tushys first and foremost. thanks again

You're welcome.

It is definately a benefit to have a product manufacturer cover their rear end. Especially when a homeowner complains about a failure. The painter can eliminate his culpability if he has something to refer to as far as manufacturer recommended or required application instructions of their product. It is also beneficial to have QA/QC instruments like temp gauges, psychrometers, and mil thickness gauges to measure and record conditions during the application process. These records can be considered valid documents in the event of a dispute.

Hello. Yes you can paint outside, however you need to keep an eye on the dew point as much as the temps when they are close to spec.

Welcome JD, from eastern Mass

So did the paint go on today?

BTW, you never stated if it were waterborne or solvent based. If protected or open to the weather?

Although warm today, it sure felt like it was going to rain at any moment, and I guess we're in for it tonight. The later part of the week looks much more suitable
