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.
There are different types of paint, which have different drying and curing times. PaintRite Pros only uses premium water based paints in California. These water based paints dry faster than oil based paints, meaning you don’t have to worry about rubbing paint against your clothing.
