Welcome, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you with your issue.Painters tend to push the envelope this time of year. I'd wait until Spring
We have some bare wood trim that was installed. If we wait until Spring, what should we do with the bare wood. I understand that paint should be applied to primer within a short amount of time otherwise there is a problem of the paint adhering to the primer.
Waiting 5 or 6 months won't hurt your bare wood. I wouldn't prime it either. Any painting this time of year is too risky where you are
We routinely wait until Spring to paint even if we install un-primed exterior wood trim. I'm in NH. It's been in the 20's a few nights lately
Should we caulk around the un-primed wood?
If you need to caulk then you can do that now. Many paintable caulks can cure at temps down to 20 some even lower
thanks for the information
