Planning to get your property painted by a reliable budget painter?
If you’re planning to get a paint job done during the summer season, the experience can be quite excruciating. (Not for you) but for the painter and paint job respectively.
If the outside temperature is going somewhere above 80 degrees Fahrenheit, you might not even be tempted to get a house paint job done let alone come out of your air-conditioned abodes.
Yet, you do want to get your property repainted and it’s already summer.
You may wonder, How hot is too hot for getting a paint job done at your residence?
Well here’s the answer to your query.
Is It Really Hot Outside?
If it’s really hot outside, then no painter can do the job. After all, you don’t want your painter to fall off the roof or the painting ladder just because of dehydration…
First things first, make sure the outside temperature is not exceeding a bearable limit. If the temperature outside is too hot, we recommend not opting in for a paint job.
What Type of Paint You’re Using?
Next up is deciding what type of paint you’re using.
While getting a paint job, it is highly important that you pay close attention to the type of paint which you’re using. There are two kinds of paints; latex paints & oil-based paints.
Latex paints have a temperature range somewhere between 50 degrees to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Whereas, oil-based paint has a temperature range somewhere from 40 degrees to 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
Looks like oil-based paints have a fairly broader temperature range compared to latex paints.
Oil-based paints also create a much stronger and durable finish which makes them perfect for outdoor paint jobs.
Adverse Effects of High Temperature on House Paints
Another reason why painting outdoor surfaces during the summer season is not advised is that paints quickly dry up when exposed to scorching sunlight. Paint jobs that quickly dry up during the summer season create cracks on the painted surface which eventually withers away over time.
Besides temperature gradient, there are several other conditions such as precipitation, humidity & wind speed which you may have to keep in mind in order to get the best paint job results.
As far as the humidity is concerned, the relative humidity levels for getting the perfect exterior paint job fall somewhere in between 40% to 70%. So make sure the humidity outside falls in this category.
Also, if there’s rain or too much precipitation in the air, we recommend that you do not opt-in for getting the paint job done on that specific day. The paint needs to dry up and create the perfect adhesion with the surface. When the weather outside gets rainy or has a lot of precipitation in the air, the paint doesn’t easily settle with the surface and remains wet. As a result, you may never end up with an adhesion whatsoever.
Get Your Homes Painted on a Pleasant Day
Besides, too high or too low of a temperature may fail to create perfect adhesion between the paint coat & the surface on which it has been applied upon. Therefore, it is necessary that you find a decent day to get your property painted. Choose a day that has the perfect weather to get the most out of your paints.
One way to do this is to consult the weather forecast. You can track the weather conditions by visiting any weather forecast website or your mobile phone’s in-built weather tracking feature.
