Painting late in the day?


Just wondering how safe it is to prime from 6pm -10pm...I'm in MD and the temps have been 75 or so but I notice lots of moisture on my fascia in the morning. Also is it ok to keep the same tape with caulk, primer and paint over it? I don't want the tape to peel off any paint. Tips are welcome.

Here in MD, you really should not be painting exteriors after about, say 4:30 or so. Run a razor knife around the tape before removal

You are 100% correct my friend. I was painting yesterday from 3-10 and everything I put on around 7pm did not dry within an hour (which ia why i asked the question). I woke up this morning and the paint that was on my drip cap parts of the fascia were runny and dripping. So now I have some sanding, more priming and power washing to do . Ah well, we live and learn.

Painting late in the day?


Hey, we've all been there. Sometimes the evenings are the only time you have to do your painting. Is there anyway to tarp over your work to keep the moisture off the surface? I have tucked tarps into the spouting and put some 4 x 4's in the spouting to hold down the tarp. Do the same for the bottom of the tarp to keep it from blowing around. As long as it's not windy, your tarps will stay in place and give you a barrier from the moisture. You can also run a fan under the tarps to enhance drying. I know this is an extreme and labor intensive solution, but, if you want it to dry.........

We deal with that every fall here. Once the temperate drops below the dew point each night you will get condensation on everything and paint that has not had a few good drying hours does not like any condensation on it.

Thanks for the info and one more question. Is it okay to paint while it's raining in areas that are not exposed directky to moisture?

Really no because if it's raining the humidity level is so high it can effect your paint.. Depending on the circumstances you might get away it, but seems chancy.
You know on second thought most paint is water based so as long as the rain can't blow in on it you should be OK

Again, thanks for everyone's help. I will give it a go and see what happens. The weather outlook for the next two weeks is not so good so I have to what I can when I can. I'm using Zinsser 123 and that Behr Marquee stuff .

Have really not heard very many reviews on the Marquee so let us know how it works for you.

Just an update...the primer doesn't like the cold night temps and doesn't dry but the marquee dries with no problem. I'm actually impressed with how quick it dries. During the day it dries in about 15 minutes and at night about one to hours (temps fell from 65-55).

My solution to getting the primer to dry is a heat gun.

It goes on easy and covers well but you still need two coats. I am using satin and semi-gloss and it almost feels like it has rubber in the paint when dry. Very easy to clean but what I like the most is that it dries in the cold and at night.

I used it in one section without a primer and it did cover well. Only time will tell how it holds up but as far as looks it does look and feel high-end. Is it worth 45/gallon? Don't know if any paint is worth that again to be able to apply in cold temps and at night is more than I can ask for.

Also their ultra pure white is by far the whitest paint I have seen. Almost too white. Will post some progress pics.

Before and after. Used a heat gun to get most of the paint off the fascia and soffit boards. It was alligatored and peeling. Filled imperfections with mh ready patch, replaced rotted boards, hit the corners with pc-11, recaulked, fixed the leaky roof edges with 209, sanded with 80 followed by 120, one coat of 123 and two coats of paint. Added some soffit vents too. Looks decent...hope it lasts. Too bad I'm only 1/2 finished.

Just a follow up. I finished painting yesterday and it's not likely that I'll be picking up another paint brush for many many years.

I switched to peel stop and found that it does a good job at bridging and helping to conceal imperfections. The Behr Marquee looks nice but what's more impressive is that it can be applied at cold temperatures, at night and even when it's humid all possible because of how well it dries. The drying time is about 1-2 hours when the temps are in the low 30s-40s (at night). Also it cleans well.
