Weather Restrictions for Exterior Latex Coating


When it comes to applying latex coatings, the weather must have the right conditions. That way, it can dry completely. Without the right weather conditions, exterior painters in Toronto will not be able to successfully complete the paint job.

Preventing Damage

Another method of preventing damage to the tank is to ensure that you have the inside coated as well. An interior coating can insulate the tank against water damage and condensation to prevent corrosion. When you choose exterior painting services in Toronto, the painters will use components that can resist many different types of chemicals to ensure that they perform properly, no matter what you are storing. This is why you want to work with a professional that specializes in offering coatings. They can ensure that you get the best results from the project.

The Temperature

If there is a low temperature, then film might form on the latex coating. That can prevent it from properly adhering, and it might negatively affect the longevity and the toughness of the coating. In some cases, like with a gloss coating, you might notice cracks or odd colours.

Make sure that the air is not too cold. Check the weather forecast to ensure that the temperature will not become too cold for the next 24 hours while the coating dries and sets. Check the surface temperature as well. Just because the air is warm does not mean that the surface will be the right temperature.

Don’t try to get the coating to dry too quickly. If this happens on a windy day, for example, it might dry before the film forms. That can compromise how long it will last in the long run. When you apply exterior paint, these conditions might speed up the drying time too much:

● Very hot temperatures
● Painting in low humidity, such as less than 20 percent
● Painting on a windy day
● Painting if the surface is too hot
● Very porous surfaces
● Painting in direct sunlight, particularly if you have a dark coloured paint

Avoiding Moisture

If there is too much moisture in the air, the paint might start to run and sag, and it can dry too slowly. You should ensure that the temperature is not much different than the dew point, which can determine how humid it is out. Make sure that you avoid applying paint if there is moisture forming on the surface you are painting or on the nearby surfaces.
