As a general rule, the ideal temperatures for painting in the fall and winter is between 50 and 85 degrees. This means that late spring, summer, fall and even into the California winter can suit the needs of your paint just fine. Here’s another bit of good news: thanks to the continued development of quality formulas, there are some exterior paint options that are designed for application in even colder weather. As an example Benjamin Moore's Regal Select makes painting possible even when the outdoor temperature dips as low as 35 or 40 degrees. But we wont do that!
As we said above, moisture is never the friend of exterior painting. The key to a healthy, sturdy paint application is providing a clean, dry surface. With that said, after a substantial rainstorm it’s best to wait a couple of days to paint. Metal surfaces such as gutters and overhead garage doors are most at risk when it comes to moisture. These surfaces have to be painted early in the day assuring proper dry time before any possible night moisture. Stucco has never been a problem. It also is important to be aware of temperature fluctuations. These are especially common in the early spring and fall, when the days get very warm but then become drastically cooler as soon as the sun goes down. Your paint will need a couple of hours before and after the dew point in order to be ready for action.
