If you were in Dallas for example, there isn't going to be any difference in temp and humidity anywhere you are. This is something to keep in mind i guess. A lot of painters i knew there didn't quite understand this principle. Especially when they were using Conversion varnish. What a cluster.


You’re 100% spot on about that...a morning in Carlsbad is chilly, overcast, n high humidity while 15-20 min drive will put you in Escondido or Valley Center where it feels like death valley.

Our summer got started unseasonably late this yr, it JUST started staying consistently warm in the last 3 weeks....

Makes for some really interesting re-coat times! Thankfully the different means even new construction has fully operational HVAC before any painting or finishing work begins so temp n humidity can be controlled as much as possible with windows open.

Another advantage is that after you’ve been doin this for awhile it becomes really easy to spot flashing or drag right away n troubleshoot...but then stuff like this happens n its SUPER frustrating when u can’t figure it out haha!

i lived 2 blocks from the beach in Oceanside for 5 years. Not a great neighborhood back then but the weather was awesome. Never had to run the ac once that entire time and the wall heater came on maybe three or four times. The gun shots at 2-3 in the morning were awful fun though! Then i moved to hell on earth, more commonly known as Poway. 105-110 almost every day from May to October. Ran the ac constantly from late March until at least Thanksgiving. A lot nicer area but too damn hot to leave the apartment!

think because the paints are so fast drying, on some surfaces they just never can quite "set" right for lack of a better term.

Yep! My first apartment was beachside in Oside as well (its super nice now hah). Same thing...no AC & the wall heater was used for most of December. Now we have a house in Vista so we’re right btwn cbad n Escondido on the mountain side. The AC will get turned on here in about 2 weeks (usually its already been on for a month) n god help us if something goes wrong with it before October.

I always say “welcome to palm dessert” in the summer cuz its SO unbearably hot. Our front yard is still mostly dessert cuz I can’t get anything to survive beside succulents n even they struggle in August....

I miss the coast livin soooo much n would happily trade space for location but the Mr feels very differently n is stubborn as all get out. So we stay for now (till I wear him down enough to cave in haha).

If the color selected is from Benjamin Moore Aura Color Stories, that is full spectrum color (color code starts wtih "CSP-") which uses 5 - 7 tints. You have to use Aura paint in that case.
