Did you know that paint can freeze? Once frozen, it is damaged and shouldn’t be used again. In the cold weather that we are experiencing, the paint kept in your garage is most likely garbage now. If you store the paint underneath your stairs on the concrete floor, it is most likely garbage as well. The paint cans can absorb the moisture from the concrete and rust and it can also absorb the cold and freeze.The best place to store your left over paint would be in a heated storage area on a shelf above the ground. Paint does not last forever even in the best storage areas. So, if you want to use the paint after several years, it would be a good idea to visit a paint store and ask them if the paint is still good before using it. It will save you from having to repaint or fix the area you have just painted if the paint has gone bad.
