Also asked, is it OK to leave paint in the cold?

Paint. Water-based and latex paints should never be left in freezing temperatures because the ingredients in the paint can freeze, expand, separate, and clump, rendering the paint virtually unusable for your next redecorating project.

Furthermore, how do you store paint for the winter? Storing Paint Cans During the Winter

  1. Unless your garage is temperature-controlled, avoid it at all costs.
  2. Choose a storage place that is dark, dry, and cool (not cold).
  3. To properly seal your paint cans, place a sheet of plastic wrap across the can opening, then gently pound the lid into place.
  4. Store the can upside down.

Also question is, can paint be stored in hot garage?

Paint. Extreme heat and extreme cold can alter paint formulas. So if the temperature in your garage is a rollercoaster throughout the year, it's not an ideal place for storing your leftover paint. Check the paint can label for recommended storage temperatures.

Can paint be left outside?

Paint Storage Best PracticesThe space you choose should be cool (but not cold), dark and dry. Outdoor structures like sheds are problematic because they become too cold in winter, and may have moisture problems as well. To further protect your paint, store it in an air-tight container.
