To ensure there is no over-spray, we will cover all areas of your house that you do not want painted (driveway, foundation, etc.) including your yard and plants. Plus, we will tape off the proper areas to protect the parts of your house that you do not want painted (windows, vents, etc.).

3: Washing Your House

For your exterior house paint to last the maximum amount of years possible while looking its best, it needs to be applied to a clean surface. We will power-wash your home to eliminate any dirt, oil or mildew that has built up on your house exterior over time.

4: Surface Preparation

To ensure your new exterior house paint strongly adheres to your home so it does not chip or flake off, we will properly prepare the surface before we paint your house. This includes:

  • Scraping and sanding to get down to a solid surface
  • Sanding for a better appearance
  • Replacing any damaged or rotten wood
  • Removing any non-adhering old caulk
  • Applying new caulk
  • and finally… PRIMING.

This attention to detail during your exterior wall’s surface preparation ensures that your paint will look beautiful and last the maximum amount of years possible.

5: Exterior Paint Application

Now that your home painting job has been prepared by washing, taping, preparing the surface properly, now it’s time for your house to get a beautiful new exterior paint-job that will make you proud of your home.

Our experienced home painters will apply your new paint with a brush, roller and by spraying. To ensure no moisture penetrates into your siding or the wood of your home, we will also paint under where the siding overhangs, any “nooks and crannies” of the exterior walls, and all around your windows, doors, vents and other critical areas.

This will ensure your paint looks great, lasts long and protects your house from water-damage for many years (or decades) to come.

6: Final Inspection
