The Exterior House Painting Process
First we prep the home with a eco friendly wash if needed, then we proceed to scraping. once the scraping is complete we power sand all the bare areas to help get rid of the ridges. once this is complete we use a heavy duty oil based primed to seal the surfaces and then proceed with either one or two coats (if needed or wanted) of diamond exterior paint. your options for exterior sheens are flat, satin, and semi gloss. the higher the sheen the longer the life of the paint. its always best to start at the top of the house and work your way down. we remove and replace all storm windows, caulk any seems with flex 9000 to ensure a sealed surface. we also have an on site carpenter who is capable of doing any wood rot repairs.

The first thing we do to prep the paint surface with a eco-friendly wash if needed, then we proceed to scraping. Once the scraping is complete we power sand all the bare areas to help get rid of the ridges. We remove and replace all storm windows, and caulk any seams with flex 9000 to ensure a sealed surface. After scraping, sanding and caulking, we use a heavy duty oil based primer to seal the surfaces and then proceed with either one or two coats of paint working from the top down to the bottom.
Before it starts to peel! Usually before your exterior paint begins to peel, you will start to notice small cracks, and this is when you should begin your exterior painting project. You will save thousands in prep by simply painting when needed.
