Our Exterior Painting Process
Step 1. Preparation
Before we can paint your home’s exterior, we start by thoroughly preparing its surface. Without this process, your paint can peel and fade long before it should. We get started by power washing every inch of your exterior. From there, we scrape away all loose paint, sand away anything that may remain, clean the corners of your exterior, and then sand down to the bare wood siding if needed. Once this is completed, we go back over the exterior and add caulk wherever needed, provide carpentry repairs to ensure your home is protected, and even replace rotten wood.
Step 2. Primer Application
After we’ve completed prepared the surface of your home’s exterior, we apply a full coat of heavy-duty oil-based primer. To ensure this is fully absorbed into the walls, we let the house slowly dry for at least 48 hours, if not more depending on the weather.
Step 3. Sanding & Painting
Once your walls are thoroughly dry, we lightly sand your siding by hand to provide a smoother finish to your surfaces. Next, we apply two complete coats of paint, using only the most premium exterior paints from brands like Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams.
