Exterior Painting

Regularly painting the exterior of you house will not only boost the curb appeal of your property, but it will also protect it from the wet and soggy West Coast weather.

 

Preparation

  • First, we will power-wash your entire house to remove dirt and grime. Mildew will be eliminated with TSP and bleach.
  • Patio furniture and other items around the house will be moved and covered.
  • We will take the utmost care to protect the landscaping surrounding your property.

Surface Preparation

  • We will scrape off and sand all loose and peeling paint.
  • Bare wood and rusted areas will be primed to seal in stains and ensure adhesion of the finish coat.

Maintenance

  • Any unsightly damage will be caulked and patched as necessary.
  • We can repair minor damage on your house, such as replaced deteriorated trim or deck boards.

Painting

  • We use latex paints and water-based stains, or oil paints and stains, depending on the job requirements.
  • The best way to protect badly-weathered wooden siding and shingles with a lot of exposed bare wood is by using a solid colour exterior oil stain. Because it is alkyd-based, oil stain is water-repellent, and it will never peal (as long as there no water trapped in the wood underneath).
  • One problem with oil-based paints is that their colour tends to fade over time. If your house is in good shape and you want your new colour to last for more than ten years then ask us about a water-based exterior solid-colour stain which is guaranteed by the manufacturer for 15 years.
  • We apply the paint with a brush and a roller or we spray it depending on what is the best option.

Clean up

  • We will clean up the job site at the end of every day. All equipment will be neatly kept in an area specified by the home owner.
  • At the end of the job will take away all our garbage.
  • We will clearly label any left-over paint and leave it for future touch-ups.
