Winter Exterior House Painting

Atlanta has a temperate climate.  All four seasons represent themselves with green springs, hot summers, colorful falls and cold winters.  One of the best parts of being a painting company in Atlanta is that we can perform exterior painting all year long.

Obviously, we can’t paint outside during rain or freezing temperatures but those conditions usually don’t last more than a few days at a time.

The reason that we can paint outside during the winter is because paint manufacturers have formulated their exterior coatings for low temperature application.  For instance, Sherwin Williams Emerald, Duration, SuperPaint and A-100 all can be applied in temperatures as low as 35 degrees Fahrenheit.   35 degrees is the surface temperature, not the air temperature.

Because GreenWave Solutions focuses on quality instead of production, we don’t push the low temperature limits of the paints.  Even though the paint says it can be applied at 35 degrees, you must determine many factors when painting in winter.  An important factor other than temperature is daylight.  If the paint doesn’t have time to set before sunset, surfactants leaching becomes a real problem.

These obscure, but important, details are why you should hire a professional to perform your exterior house painting.
