Exterior Painting Process
There are many reasons to repaint a house: The color of the paint is faded; the paint is cracked or peeling; or you just want to change the color. Our external painting service follows a seven-step process to ensure your complete satisfaction.
The prep work is 70% of the job. Unless handled properly, the final coat of paint will inevitably fail sooner than expected and cost the home owner additional dollars.
The Seven steps to a properly painted exterior are as follows:
We begin with a pressure wash to remove and prevent the growth of moss, mildew, also to remove dirt and grime.
We then scrape, sand, apply TSP (Tri-sodium Phosphate) and use of 45 year caulk on all surfaces where needed. Loose paint is removed and all bare wood is spot primed.
The next step is to mask and cover all surfaces not to be primed and painted.
Loose siding, trim and downspouts are re-nailed or re-strapped.
The first coat of paint is applied guarantees even paint coverage.
A second coat of paint is applied to all painted surfaces. This ensures a higher degree of color retention (5 year guarantee).
Inspection is the final step. Each job is inspection to make all areas are covered to the customer’s satisfaction.
