An exterior paint job is a great way to breathe some new life in any building’s exterior. It’s the perfect way to increase your homes appeal, increase its overall value and make it look new again. However, when painting any exterior surface, it’s important to always consider external factors such as the weather before painting.
When a fresh coat of paint gets wet right away it could open the door for a number of issues to occur. It could impact the durability and appearance of the paint, often resulting in you having to add another coat of paint.
When it’s hot and humid outside, paint “wetting” could happen. This means that lighter areas of paint film can appear, potentially causing permanent and blotchy paint jobs.
Blistering is also a possibility when the conditions are too damp or hot and humid. If this occurs you may need to sand the blistered areas a patch the areas impacted.
