I have a cottage (new construction) with T-111 siding. The builders are telling me to prime it asap, so I can get my final inspection from the county. However, the local paint store is saying wait for spring. I am in northern California and we’ve had quite a bit of rain. And, in general, it gets foggy here every night. It looks like we will get about a week long break from the rain starting this weekend.
I guess my question is: How many days do I need to wait, after a rain, to apply my primer? And will it dry successfully if the daily temp is around 60, and the overnight temp around 40?
I will be doing this myself with a sprayer and a husband who will back-roll.
