Full power wash to remove dirt, debris, and mildew. Power washing is the first step to a good paint job. Washing is done to remove dirt, debris, pollen and mildew, (If the mildew on your house is significant you will want to use an environmentally friendly detergent ) further it removes some of the chalking paint from previous paint jobs. After a thorough wash the new paint that is applied will adhere better, bonding to the old surface. Thus, the job will last longer, saving you money in the long run.
Full mask of unpainted surfaces including brick, windows, fixtures, and roof-line - Coverage of decorative landscaping. Masking the house, the right way, is hard and takes a lot of skill. The reason many homeowners choose not to paint their own home is the difficulty of this task. If this is not done professionally it can be the difference in a job that sparkles and a job that looks bad. When prepping the home this is the most time-consuming task and must be done right
Scrape and Sand
Scraping to remove old peeling paint, feather sanding of bare wood for better surface area and a smooth finish. Areas of peeling an flaking paint need to be scraped, and sanded. Some contractors will only scrape off the visibly peeling paint, this technique will not provide a lasting job. If the areas are not sanded the new paint will not stick as well. Those areas need to be feather sanded, in order to smooth the edges, and rough up the wood to provide more surface area for the primer to stick to.
"Spot" or "Full" prime
Primer coat on all bare wood and other areas where paint is failing, for better paint adhesion and to prevent rust spots. Bare wood areas that have been scraped and sanded will be spot primed using a high-quality primer. The areas that are badly chalking, meaning discolored light areas that you can touch and get pigment on your hand will be spot primed. Primer soaks into the wood better than latex paint, it creates a glue between the wood and the paint that will give you a long-lasting job.
Seal nail holes, fascia and siding cracks, gaps, nail heads and around windows using a premium elastomeric acrylic sealant with excellent flexibility and performance; is the best latex choice for exterior applications.
When the prep is complete we will spray the body of the house and hand brush and roll the trim for full coverage with crisp clean lines, using only acrylic painted for Colorado's tough ever changing climate and top rated by consumer reports.
Additionally, we recommend the body is gone back over, once it has had time to dry, vertically with a roller to provide additional coverage and a nice even finish. We offer this as an additional option, and it can really make all the difference.
