How low can the temperature be to seal a fence? Contracotre putting up a white cedar fence this week, say 40 is okay. If I leave the fence til spring how gray will it be. Live in the Northeast. plan on using Behr, white cedar on cedar sealer/finisher. Thanks

Most exterior coatings require it to be 50 F, you will need to read the label of the sealer you are going to use, a couple of degrees will be ok but stay close to the recomendations. You can always call around to the paint stores and check on some cold weather applications, most good paint stores will carry a line for colder weather.


As far as the graying, that will depend on the weather and sun between now and when sealed.
