I want to make maximum use of the next 3 days of 70 degree weather before it turns cold again on Monday. Several people I talked to here in Connecticut said absolutely do not paint exteriors before 10 AM and not after 2 PM. (They have also said the fast-dry mixture will not work with my kind of paint.) Is there anyone out there from the Northeast who has had experience with this? Thanks so much.

Benjamin Moore makes a low temp. paint, I believe it's good down to 34 degrees. Devoe and Sherwin Williams may make a similiar product as well. Ask around in your local quality paint stores. Don't let your friends make you nervous.

Thanks for your response, but it's the quality paint stores, not my friends, who are telling me don't bother with the low temp paint! One store is discontinuing; another told me it wouldn't work for the job I wanted to do...so I'm back to my original question; I really would like to get it in writing for the young man who is painting my house for me! Thanks again.
