There are some rumors going around that say you’re not supposed to paint when the temperature is above 80 degrees and those statements are simply NOT true (if they were, we’d never be able to work!). Here in the Southwest, our paint manufacturers formulate their products to work in the extreme heat of the Arizona summer. The only restrictions they specify are on the cold end of the scale. When working during hot summer days, we take all proper precautions and work the cool side of the house as much as possible (common sense). We have also found that starting earlier and ending before the day is at its hottest works best for both the materials applied, and for our crews. In addition, we will not apply paint when the sustained temperature of the surface will be over 110 degrees for many hours to ensure that the paint is adhering properly and for the wellbeing of our painters. Safety is always a high priority for MTS Painting, especially during the dog days of summer.
