How Long Does It Take for Exterior Paint to Dry?

Answer

The length of time it will take exterior paint to dry can depend on several things. The type of exterior paint and the temperature outside are the two most important factors that determine how long it will take to dry. In general, it takes a few hours for exterior paint to dry and 24 hours for it to cure enough to be safe from rain. Objects that have been painted with exterior paint should not be washed for 20 to 30 days after painting. If the weather outside is hot, it will take much longer for the exterior paint to dry, just as if the weather is too cold, it will also take a long time.
