That affects how the paint holds up over time, including how well it resists cracking. Colder temperatures and moisture on the surface can also result in staining or mildew.

Frequently Asked Questions
At what temperature does paint ruin?
While today's paints are versatile enough to handle a wide range of temperatures for a short time, storing them for long periods should be done at temperature ranges between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
What happens to the paint when you paint over mold?
The shade of the paint starts changing. It generally turns yellowish. The walls do not seem perfectly leveled because of the bubbles and cracks. So basically, you will be volunteering to cause further damage to the surface by painting over mold instead of improving the problem.
How does temperature and humidity affect paint application?
In order for paint to properly apply to the substrate (the surface that the paint is being applied to), it must be allowed to dry under suitable temperature and humidity levels. Too cold and the paint may not adhere, leaving you with paint work that is patchy and unsightly. Bumps and wrinkles occur when paint is allowed to dry too rapidly.
