Miscellaneous Summary. Best Time to Paint Houses.

The Scientific American 15, 9.4.1864

- Experiments have indicated that paint on surfaces exposed to the sun will be much more durable if applied in autumn or spring, that if put on during hot weather. In cold weather it dries slowly, forms a hard, glossy coat, tough like glass; while if applied in warm weather, the oil strikes into the wood, leaving the paint so dry that it is rapidly beaten off by rains.
