Exterior Painting

As always, preparation is the difference of a good paint job and a great paint job.  The following is what we do on each and every house:

Power washing is one of the most important steps in preparing your home for painting.  All homes have a layer of dirt, mildew, and dust which can only be removed by spraying with 2000 to 3000 psi of water to the surfaces to be painted.  We offer TSP-treated water power washing to help kill mold or mildew.  It is crucial to begin with a clean and properly prepared surface because paint quality simple will not adhere to a dirty surface.

Scraping and minor wood repair is also necessary in surface preparation.  We scrape by hand with putty knives and wire brushes to completely remove all peeling, bubbled, or loose paint.  This will ensure a smooth, tight surface for the application of primer.  All loose boards are nailed down and we have skilled professionals to handle most minor repairs.

After the preparation is complete, we prime all repairs or any bare wood.  The primer seals the wood surface and provides a bonding effect for the finish coat to be applied. Caulking is applied in all seams, joints, cracks, nail holes and all major wood joints. All windows and door jambs are carefully caulked to seal out insects and weather as much as possible.

The finish coat is applied after all the above mentioned steps have been completed.  We always use top of the line paint such as Glidden Professional, Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore, Pittsburgh Paints, Kelly Moore, Jones Blair, or any other premium brand of your choosing.
