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.

We hired Spectrum to paint, wallpaper, remove wallpaper, build a closet, remove popcorn ceilings, and other related jobs that came up. Each day I was greeted with a smile and handshake from the crew leader and his team. At the end of the day, their enthusiasm was as strong as it was in the morning. Just an amazing group of dedicated, hardworking people. They finished our condo in record time, covered our floors and furniture, what little we had. I am sorry that we have to stop at 5 stars. They deserve at least double that number! We moved into a condo and they were careful also about the common areas, putting down tarps and board to keep the dust off the rugs and not track onto the carpet. The building staff was so appreciative!

Had spectrum paint our new addition inside and out and the rest of our first floor. They really did a great job. They were very professional and all of the painters took pride in their work. They showed up pleasant and left at the end of each day with a smile. They cleaned up like they weren't even there. I would highly recommend them.

Not enough superlatives to describe the quality of work and the professionalism of the tea m. No detail, however small, was overlooked. Highly recommend with no reservations.
