Exterior Painting

It’s a fact - heat, cold, moisture, and dirt are primary causes for paint to fail. Therefore, prep work is especially important when painting in Greater Washington DC area, since the weather is really taking a tall on the exterior surfaces. So before painting any surface we make sure it’s clean, dry and dull.

Most of the time we will clean the siding, eves, trim and other exterior surfaces with power-washer to remove dirt, lose paint, mildew (mildew has to be treated with diluted bleach and special cleaner before power-washing), etc.

After a few days of drying we will tape, tarp, and protect all roofs, grounds and surrounding surfaces and start on the preparation of the surfaces. Usual preparation involves scraping, caulking, sanding, and priming – before the final coat of exterior house paint is applied.
