Storing Paint in Cold New Jersey Weather

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. With New Jersey temperatures now dipping into the single digits, here are some 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 hope you found these painting tips helpful. If you have any interior painting, exterior painting, wall paper, carpentry, power washing, deck refinishing or epoxy floor coating questions, we would be happy to answer them. Call us today at 973-706-6033 to schedule your FREE estimate!

Our master bedroom and bath have never looked so beautiful- thanks to Spectrum Painting. Throughout the entire job the staff was professional, courteous, knowledgeable, honest and most caring of my concerns as a homeowner.

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.

Have used Spectrum Painting for interior painting of our kitchen/nook, dining and living rooms as well as power washing of our deck. Spectrum is a very professional, efficient and thorough contractor and the results are excellent. From initial booking through site survey, cost estimate, contracting, scheduling, on time arrival, schedule adherence, friendliness of crew, clean up and follow up, they excel. Will not hesitate to use Spectrum again soon.

I never thought getting my garage floor painted would make so many of my friends jealous! You did such a meticulous job, especially on the details. I especially appreciated the time you took to explain all the necessary steps to complete a quality job. We are so glad we hired you. I am already thinking about some additional work for this spring.
