Exterior Paint Directly After Rain Okay?
We are getting the exterior of our house painted and we live in Seattle. It's been raining for the last week.
There is supposed to be one clear weather day tomorrow and our exterior painters want to get started on the priming (it's still raining this evening). I'm panicked about them painting so closely after the rain. Everything I have read says that you have to wait 3 days or so for the wood to dry before painting? What happens if they don't wait?
I should note that we had massive paint failure and so removed all of the paint from the lapboards on the bottom of our house. So the wood is completely exposed. On the top, we installed new Hardy shingles.
Thanks so much for any advice you can provide.
