Exterior Painting Contractor
It is amazing how a fresh coat of paint can transform the look of your house. When applied by professional Exterior Painting Contractor, paint can give your house a fresh new look for less cash and in less time than any other home renovation project. Not to mention that exterior paint does also protect your biggest investment from from sun, wind, and rain. But when it begins to peel or crack, it comes time to paint it again. When properly applied by a professional painter, new paint should last for a good 15 years. Let’s talk about Amazing Painting Company’s painting process.
Pressure washing the exterior of the house is crucial. A good scrubbing is a must before painting any exterior surface in order to remove the dirt and broken-down paint residues that keep fresh coats from adhering and gets rid of mildew. Amazing Painting Company cleans all house exteriors with a pressure washers. Walls are wet down before getting scrubbed, then washed with water mixed with chlorine bleach and a concentrated, phosphate-free cleaner, such as TSP, or Jomax. Amazing Painting Painters work in sections, from the bottom to the top to avoid any streaks. Wood siding and trim will be ready to paint after a day or two of dry weather.
Paint that has peeled, bubbled, or blistered are scraped off by
hand and power sanders. Amazing Painting house painters always use respirators when scraping and sanding paint and always make sure to protect the surrounding work area, including plants and bushes.
After all the loose paint is removed, Amazing Painting house painters proceed to sand all scraped areas using 50- or 80-grit sandpaper.
Small random-orbit sanders make this job go a lot faster and easier. We make sure that there is a feathered, smooth transition from exposed wood to old paint. For areas that might get close scrutiny, we follow up with a 100- or 120-grit rubdown to erase any scratches.
After the sanding is done, it’s time to fill minor cracks and dents, repair any rot, and replace any pieces that are too far gone. Amazing Painting then proceeds to prime all bare wooded areas, using an oil based primer. Primers are formulated to penetrate, seal, and provide a good surface for the top coats to stick to. We use them over bare wood and over paint with a chalky, deteriorated surface. We only use the best exterior primers available.
When the primer is dry, we caulk all small joints in the siding and trim. Amazing Painting uses siliconized acrylics since paint won’t stick to straight silicones.
Two final coats of Paint is then applied with brush and/or roller or sprayed and then back-brushed after all prep work is completed; we use sprayers on shutters, lattice and some hard-to-reach areas
