How long should cedar dry after a rain before painting?
depending on the climate where you live, you may want to wait till spring rather than chance damp wood and cold temperature it's a good idea to wait days following a day of rain check the wood in a number of places with a moisture meter should be around 15 or so in order to paint safely.

Read the can is the best thing to do, alkyd paint takes longer, some latex are very short, 20 minutes to recoat, most are 2 - 4 hours.
There is no specific time, yet wait until the surface is completely dry.
In a dry climate 24 hours is usually enough time to allow the substrate to dry before application. Allow a longer drying time in humid areas.
About two days depending on the depth of the base coat and finish coat. Also is the this going on brick or masonry that is exposed to the outside? or lath with an air path b…ehind it? It may take longer to dry if it's going on masonry that is an outside wall and if the outside wall is wet. Also depends on the air circulation in the home.
Checking with my paint supplier, I was told you have to wait at least 48 hours for oil base paint to dry before covering with latex. Probably, the longer the better.
Generally, if painting on the outside wait a least 48 hours for the surface to be free of any moisture.
at least 21 days, but if you live in a wet or cold climate, you should allow 30. this time is nessecary of the motar to fully cure so that moisture problems dont result later
One full week to avoid chips and peels
No. In fact, it may even wash away if the rain is strong enough. Best to recoat once the rain stops.
Minimum of 2 mins. And maximum of 5-6 mins.
Putty should not be allowed to dry completely. If it does, then it will become brittle and may shrink and crack. The main purpose of putty is to form a seal between the glass …and the wooden window frame. The putty should be painted to seal in the linseed oil which keeps it pliable. A film of hard putty on the surface forms after 2 to 3 weeks (weather dependent) and then the painting should be carried out to stop any further drying of the putty.
Wait until the surface is fully dry and the humidity level is less than 85%. The dew point should not be within 5 degrees of the temperature. A good rule of thumb is don't pai…nt oil based paints if it might rain within four hours after you've finished applying the paint.

You should not apply stain after paint . They are two different things and there is no point doing this. Stain is for bare prepared wood, not for going over paint.
In Home Improvement
If you stain with a breathable stain such as from SANSIN Corporation, you may coat anytime. If you're sealing it, you should wait until the moisture content is at least 12%. I… can't tell you how long to wait because that depends on the humidity, temperature, how long it has already been cut etc.

Imediatly after trowling
First of all, concrete does not "dry" to become hard. It cures,which is a chemical interaction between its water and its portlandcement. Usually, a couple of hours is plenty …of time for concrete to 'set'enough to not be damaged by rain. The best and strongest concrete never dries out for the first 28days from pouring it.
