Thorough, quality preparatory work is most important part of any good painting job.  We power-wash with a mould-killing additive, scrape away all failing paint, lose caulking and debris that would interfere with a lasting and ecstatically pleasing coat of paint.
Sand rough areas with a random orbital sender and by hand. Feather rough areas to a smooth finish with appropriate grade of sandpaper.
 
 

 
 
The Exterior Painting process
Preparation work
  • Scraping and sanding of all loose and peeling paint down to a sound surface
  • Spot priming of all bare surfaces with sufficient primer
  • Wash or pressure wash chalky areas and mildew
  • Caulk windows and door frames with acrylic siliconized caulking
  • Glossy existing paint is sanded to help the new paint adhere better
  • Removal and masking of hardware to protect it from paint
  • Wood knots and "saps" are shellac primed to prevent them from coming through the finish coat
  • Rusted metal is spot-primed with rust primer
