Newly painted exterior home


I just painted my house( got done about 2 hrs ago) and it just recently showered for less than five minutes. The paint was dry to touch. It is water based latex paint. Schwerin williams superior paint. Will this ruin the paint, doesn't feel wet anywhere on it but you never know. the concrete wasn't even completely wet. Any responses will help.

It shouldn't be a problem. If the rain was hard enough to re wet the paint- it would run and you would know. Hopefully that wont happen for you for at least 4 hours.

Any idea about how long it's safe from a big shower? The last rain shower was not even showing up on the radar.

Lots of factors- humidity, temp etc. You just had it wetted, thats a lot like high humidity. Any place that water pooled is getting softened-
Like I said- 4 hours of good dryng will help tons.

Good advice given so far. If it was a light shower, you should be ok. If the humidity stays high and it stays damp overnight, you may see splotches on your paint finish from where the moisture stuck to the paint film and ruined the gloss of the paint.

some problems you might have is frosting of the paint. What is frosting you might ask? It is were water hit the paint before it is cured and the surfactant comes out it looks like a salt film on dark color paints. but you should be fine!

Most exterior house paints state on the labels that you should not paint if rain is expected in 48 hours. Many premium exterior products will be resistant to early moisture, but a heavy rainfall can rewet a latex paint. Dark colors, which cure slowly, will most likely be affected (blistering, bubbling).
