The Exterior Painting Process

If you are planning to paint the exterior of your home, it is helpful to understand the exterior painting process. There are several stages involved, and it’s important that they be administered in the correct order. To prepare the designated surfaces to be painted, workers will first pressure wash the area. A clean and dry surface necessary to the exterior painting process in order to help fight future mildew and bacteria problems.

If mold has dark, wet places that it can grow, homes loose their opportunity for even paint coloration and coating.  Coloring  becomes visually inconsistent.

Next, all holes and cracks will be filled with putty, so the paint will last over time. If there are open holes in the painted area, water will seep through and can cause damage to the home. If painting has been applied previously, any flaking or small pieces will be removed prior to the process.

Once it is time to paint, our painters will finish the job without any interruption, subject to weather conditions. Weather or personal issues can be a problem for the team occasionally. However, staff members are prepared for these sudden problems and will handle the situation professionally and in a timely manner.

If your home needs certain repairs and/or replacements in areas to be painted, it is advisable to choose a painting company that can provide these services “in-house”.  Otherwise, you will be paying extra for subbing this service out to a separate contractor(s).
