Hi, I'm new to this group!!
I have a few windows that need to be painted inside. It is pretty cold
out (around or below freezing temp), is it okay to paint them now or
should I wait until the spring/summer??
If you mean you are worried about freezing on the inside of the exterior
window then you have concerns. If aluminum they might get cold enough to
freeze, if wood with storms then if it is near 0-10 with oil or 20 with
latex I would worry, if you have any condensation on the glass your
humidity is to high it can ruin paint. If you really want to be sure get
a IR thermometer at Radioshck for 30$. You just dont want the paint to
freeze before it cures a few weeks , Latex may freeze at 20-28. But new
formulations of paint say from Sherwin Williams can freeze safely
depending on product in 4-8 hrs. Go to a real paint store if your window
temp is low. But 32 outside for a low nightime temp it not much to worry
unless it is cheap aluminum.
