Cool weather painting cedar shingles.

Anonymous asked 10 years ago

Is it okay to paint cedar shingles in 50 degree weather? We live in the Pacific Northwest. We are selling our house.

Most acrylic paints can be applied to about 40 degrees. As long as the weather is dry and you work in the sun this is OK. You can begin painting a little later to help the surface warm up. This is very helpful if you have morning dew. Also try to stop painting a little early so the paint has a chance to dry and cure before before nightfall.
