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.

Oldemar and Rolando made everything perfect and would like them both again! You were our first painter and will always be our only.

Spectrum Painting was recommended to us by our fence company when we recently installed a picket fence.. They did a great job. They arrived punctually, were highly professional and made sure that the job was done properly. I would definitely recommend them and use them again.

They were knowledgable in the products and techniques needed to complete the job. They were responsive to questions and issues immediately. Products were superior. Friendly, arrived on time and completed the job in a timely manner. Spectrum's presence in the community, also were the only ones who could handle all our special requests.

One of the very best you will find in this area. Highly competent, punctual and with an aim to please. Spectrum has painted most of the interior of my home and most recently, my large outdoor deck. When they are here, I can relax knowing they will treat my home like it's their own. There's an added comfort knowing that there's a responsive team leader present on each job to whom I can address any questions or concerns. Don't go for the low-end companies. Price is what you pay, but lasting value is what you get.

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.

I have used Spectrum for almost 20 years, most recently for a carpentry project. The outcomes of all my jobs have been nothing other than excellent. The staff is the best part of Spectrum. Regardless of the job or who shows up, they are all friendly, courteous, listen to your needs and answer all questions willingly. They always confirm the job requirements and expectations before they start to make sure their expectations are in synch with ours. I have and will continue to recommend Spectrum to my friends.
