High Humidity Painting

Star Ostgard asked 10 years ago

We live in Minnesota, which has very high humidity in the summer. I’d like to start painting the house (two story and has about half shingle siding) so it’s done by winter – but I’m worried about the effect of the humidity. Am I doomed to wait until fall?

Go ahead and start painting. High humidity will slow down the drying of paint but shouldn't affect the overall quality of the job. Keep an eye out for impending rain and quite early to give the paint a chance to dry before getting wet.
