House Painting Tips

Periodically, the exterior surfaces of your home need to be repainted by an Orlando house painter in order to keep the home properly maintained and looking great. We understand that an exterior repainting project can seem time-consuming, and you may even think that it would disrupt your regular life. There are multiple steps that can be taken to reduce the time required while still producing the impressive results that you want to see on your home.

Choose a Similar or Darker Paint Color

DARKER PAINT COLOR

Some homeowners want to brighten their home's exterior by choosing a lighter color, but you may save a considerable amount of time when you choose a similar or darker shade of paint. When you choose a lighter shade of paint, the entire surface area will need to be primed. In some cases, multiple layers of paint will also need to be applied over the primer. However, when you choose a paint color that is similar to or darker than the existing color, only select areas will need to be primed. This may include areas where bare wood is showing. After all, while primer can be used to prepare the surface for a different shade of paint, it also is necessary to prepare raw wood to accept paint.

Power Wash the Surface

Power Washing

Before spot-priming the surface, however, the exterior of the home needs to be power washed. Over time, loose dirt and other debris can accumulate on the surface. This debris can cause paint to be applied unevenly, and it can even cause paint to peel off soon after it is applied. While there are other ways to wash your home’s exterior before applying a fresh coat of paint, power washing is one of the fastest and easiest methods available. Be aware that you should not attempt to power wash the surface on your own. The intensity of the stream and the distance between the nozzle and the home must be carefully adjusted to avoid unnecessary damage to your siding, fascia and other surfaces.

Prepare the Material

Material Preparation

Another important step to take before painting the home is to prepare the material. Scraping away peeling paint and even replacing areas that have wood rot or other types of damage are important steps to take. In addition, caulk may need to be applied between separations or gaps between the siding slats and other components. This step ensures that the paint can be applied smoothly and evenly to give you the professional results that you desire. It also protects the home from potential damage, such as from wood and pests.

Spray Large Surface Areas

Because your goal is to complete the exterior painting project as soon as possible without sacrificing the quality of results that we generate, the efficient application of paint is necessary. While some companies apply paint by hand with a roller, spray application is a more efficient method what we use to cover large surfaces of the exterior. While this saves time, it also applies paint smoothly and evenly. Rollers and brushes may be used to apply paint to smaller areas and around windows and other features.

As you can see, there are many steps that can affect how efficiently paint is applied to your home. While you want the painting project to be completed quickly, you also want impressive results that you can be proud of. We are dedicated to providing you with the process and results that you desire, and we employ exceptional techniques throughout the project to ensure exceptional results with an efficient process. Regardless of the size of your home, rest assured that you can enjoy the fast, quality results that you desire.

"Thorough surface prep, combined with high quality paint, applied at manufacturers specified thickness is key to a high quality paint job that will keep your home protected & looking good for many years longer than the average paint job." -William Paisley/Painting Contractor
