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 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.

Very impressed with the professionalism of Charlie. He convinced me that Spectrum was the company I had to hire for my work. I know I made the right decision.

We recently had the exterior of our house soft washed and painted. I cannot say enough about Rich with my initial questions with the estimate to then project follow-up after completion. Spectrum was not the least expensive estimate I had but I was impressed right away with Rich circling back to me to see if I had any questions after he did the estimate. Right away I had a feeling that this company believed in customer service and customer satisfaction. So I went with my gut and I couldn’t be happier! Brian was fabulous with all the power washing and then Hector and his crew were top-notch. They were on time, friendly and helpful with questions and concerns I had and the job site was kept meticulously clean for the whole week. The sense of pride in the job was evident from each of the painters in my crew. I will never use another painting company again for my indoor or outdoor needs. Simply the best!
