Planning to do some repainting at your house? One of the first steps is figuring out how much paint you’ll need to get the job done. But it’s not just the amount of paint that needs consideration when repainting a room. Paint that isn’t allowed to dry before the application of a second coat is likely to peel, streak, clump, or flake when dry. Experts recommend leaving a minimum of two to four hours of drying time between each coat for best results.
Time to Dry and Time to Cure
Although exterior paint dries in a few hours, it can take up to 30 days to fully cure. That’s why it’s important to consider the weather when painting a home. We monitor the weather carefully, and will only start a painting job when we know we can work on the project consecutive days until it’s complete, and the paint will have the time to dry and cure.
