3 Tips To make Your Exterior Painting Project Go Smoother
Here are three important tips every homeowner should be aware of before they consider painting their home exterior or hiring a professional to do so.
#1. Clear Away Any Brush or Tree Growth Near Your Home
This is actually fairly important because trees, shrubs and other bushes close to your home help contribute to the spread of micro-organisms onto the exterior of your home. Might not seem like a big deal right? Wrong, these micro-organisms can take hold (more readily on some siding materials than others) and contribute to problems like mold and mildew which can make paint adhesion very difficult.
Pollens and tree sap particiles that become airborne and stuck to the exterior of your home don’t help matters any. By clearing away any excess or overgrown brush that is close to or touching your home you’ll greatly reduce the amount of contaniments on the surface you’d like to paint. You’ll also have better access and a better view of any areas that might have been covered up or hard too see in the past.
Getting a good look at your project will be important for an accurate estimate and if the project is easily accessible for the painter it will be reflected on the estimate in the reduced amount of time they have to spend doing this exact same thing.
#2. Give Your Home Exterior A Thorough Cleaning and Pressure Wash
After you’ve cleared away any sources of contaminants from your home it’s time to give the exterior of your home a thorough cleaning. This is best handled by a professional with access to a mobile pressure washing unit and special commercial grade cleaners that can quickly strip away the surface contaminants on your home. Tree saps, pollens, airborne dust, soot from chimneys, cleaning agents you’ve used in the past, these things all build up on and bond to the surface of your home. It’s these areas (if not properly cleaned) that usually cause the paint to bubble, peel or chip long before it ever should have.
#3. Replace or Repair Any Damaged Siding or Trim
Another benefit to clearing away all the brush and cleaning the exterior of your home is you’ll be able to spot any areas that might need to have minor repairs. Such as rotting or warped fascia boards, any loose or broken window trim or pieces of siding that might have been damaged (if you pressure washed your home yourself!). These repairs can be (and should be) completed long before your home is due to be painted, so there are no surprises for the painter who’s taken on your project.
