Most latex paints are dry to the touch in an hour or so, however, it takes much longer for the paint to fully cure. Specialty products like porch and deck paints, or oil-based products may take even longer. While it might be OK to walk on a porch a day or 2 after painting, be aware that it can be a month or so before the paint is fully cured. We recommend waiting at least 3-4 weeks before putting heavy or moveable furniture on a freshly-painted surface. We also suggest opening and closing doors and windows for a few weeks after painting, to help prevent sticking.
