How to Store Leftover Paint to Withstand the Harsh New Jersey Winter

At Spectrum Painting, we are always trying to add value to your painting project by properly labeling your paint cans after your interior or exterior painting project has been completed. In addition to properly labeling your paint cans, there are other simple steps you can take to extend the life of your leftover paint.

Here are a few things we recommend:
1. Store paint cans in a dry location where temperatures are above freezing.
2. Keep paint cans away from direct sunlight or extreme heat from a furnace or boiler.
3. Place a piece of plastic wrap over the top of the can before sealing it.
4. Close cans using a mallet to insure a tight seal.
5. Store cans on plastic or wood shelving to prevent cans from rusting.

If stored properly, leftover paint can last up to ten years.

People happy with our services

Your professional workers just left and like the last time I am refreshingly amazingly Happy!! I wish I could afford to tip them! I told them in a world where everyone is out for themselves it is heartwarming to meet people of honest quality who do a perfect job with smiles on their faces. They go beyond my expectations. This time I asked them to caulk a hole in a wall that they did not paint. They not only caulked it for me - they found the paint and painted the spot for me! I am so proud of your company and thank you very much.

Entire staff, from sales rep to team were professional. They were very responsive and the colorist had immediate availability. The crew was polite, knew what they were doing, worked constantly, they liked my dogs and my dogs liked them!

They were knowledgable in the products and techniques needed to complete the job. They were responsive to questions and issues immediately. Products were superior.

Very professional, prompt and reliable. Liked the estimating and contracting process. Contract was well prepared. The crew showed up timely, worked efficiently. Pam from Seela's (color consult) was a fabulous perk of Spectrum and she is awesome!
