Cold weather painting is one of the toughest scenairos a Greeley house painter could ever run into. With the cold temperature we get to here in Greeley, Colorado in the winter time it is important to know the challenges before a professional painter even gets started. Here are some of the things that can go wrong in cold Colorado weather when painting.
Poor Touch Up
Inadequate stain resistance
Color Uniformity Issues
Painting in cold weather here in the Greeley, Loveland and Fort Collins area might bring additional problems such as:
Poor color uniformity
Heavy film might slow down drying period
Paint will require more mixing time
Water spotting problems, especially Latex paints
Improper film formation causing a powdery film
Touch up coat might look lighter than the base coat
Excessive film building up might reduce your paint coverage
Oil based paint should not be applied when temperature is below 40 degrees
If the room temperature is raised to create better environmental conditions, premature skinning of the surface might occur
A latex paint film that goes under freeze-thaw cycles during the first two weeks of cure may shorten the long-term life of the paint system.
If you have no other choice, than painting in cold weather make sure you do the following:
Verify that the paint manufacturer recommends the paint for your specific temperatures
Check the wall’s temperature with a non-contact infrared thermometer, too, not just the air temperature
Paint between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Set up scaffolding, wrap everything and heat the area
