To Paint or Not to Paint: A Question of Weather

An exterior paint job comes with many considerations, one of which is the weather. Since the climate differs according to the region in which you reside, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to the question of when to paint. There are, however, basic factors that can and should be taken into consideration no matter the location of the job. Temperature For the process of applying paint, how hot or cold it should be can differ to some extent, based on the type of paint you are using. It is important to check the paint label for specifics but in the event those aren't available, a good rule of thumb is to paint while the temperature is between 40-90 degrees Fahrenheit (4-32 degrees Celsius).

The Importance of PPE and Respirators

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and respirators are important to use when working on any construction or painting project . If you're working with water-based paint in a properly ventilated area, it hardly seems worth the trouble to use a respirator. However, determining the air quality of a worksite without professional testing is difficult and you may be exposing yourself or others to contaminants without even realizing it. Respirators should always be worn by painters in environments with reduced air quality, especially if sanding or the use of solvent-based paints are involved. There are two types of PPE respirators: atmosphere-supplying for providing clean air and air-purifying which removes harmful chemicals from the air. The type of mask you will need depends on the nature of the job. What Do Respirators Protect?
