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. The key factors in painting a house are high-quality paints, proper application, correct drying time. By using top-tier paints, we ensure that only the highest standard of materials are utilized, resulting in a beautiful paint job. In addition, our crew is experienced, meticulous, and trained to lay paint evenly and smoothly. Finally, we only paint in optimum conditions so that the paint has the proper time to dry. All of this hard work leads to a gorgeous new paint job on the outside of your house!
