Cold weather painting


How cold can it be outside and still do exterior painting? What are the challenges as it gets colder?

Thanks

Cold weather painting


most paint is water based and can freeze. I believe if paint freezes it is ruined. I dont believe you are supposed to paint below 50 degrees

Your profile says New Jersey. Sorry, but you are all done till the end of March. It's not just the drying to be concerned about, it's the proper curing.
