Exterior House Painting

Critical Factors that Make Exterior Paint Last

Although it’s important to use the highest quality products in exterior house painting, as well as to possess the expertise to apply paint, by far the most important factor in an exterior paint job that will endure is thorough surface preparation.

Surface Preparation Is Essential

Surface preparation takes time, and it is the foundation upon which a high quality and durable paint job are built. Our process includes:

  • A thorough Pressure Cleaning to remove dirt and debris
  • Scraping, stripping and sanding as necessary for proper paint adhesion
  • Repairing and/or replacing damaged or rotted wood
  • Applying the appropriate primer
  • Caulking and filling all open joints
  • Applying the appropriate top quality exterior finish product for sound protection

You may wonder why painting prices vary. Eliminating steps in the preparation process may result in a less expensive paint job. However, it will also result in a less durable one. Spending a little more the first time, will mean having to repaint less often, which means greater savings in the long run.

  • Pressure cleaning of exterior surfaces, decks, and walkways
