Throughout the year, we discuss what makes paint work. But when temperatures climb above ninety degrees Fahrenheit, most paint manufacturers say it is too hot to paint ... So put down that brush and light up the grill!!!
Yes, we have paints that go on down to thirty-five degrees Fahrenheit ... Behr Ultra Exterior.
And, many deck stains are self-priming and can be applied down to forty degrees ... Behr Solid Color Stain.
In between, you've got every paint imaginable ... applied between fifty and ninety degrees Fahrenheit.
But then, there are those days where the temp climbs above ninety ... above that temp most paints and stains "flash dry" which prevents these coatings from curing properly.
So, right now (July and August) when the temp climbs above ninety ... put down that brush and light up the grill.
I recently prepared burgers and corn on the grill ... add a bowl of fresh-cut watermelon and you've got one of my favorite summer meals. Yum!!!
