Our Exterior Painting Process
Protect: An ounce of prevention goes a long way, and our painting crew will cover everything – landscaping, fixtures, vehicles, etc. – with protective dropcloths. If boom lift equipment must be driven onto any grassy areas, we prevent ruts by laying down plywood first. We use ample amounts of barriers, caution tape, and wet paint signage to direct people safely around the work area. Our personnel are also highly trained in the collection and disposal of lead paint chips, should there be any.
Prepare: All exterior surfaces will be scraped, sanded, and/or stripped with chemical solutions as necessary to remove loose paint and rust and make a smooth surface for best adhesion. In most cases, the exterior surface will be pressure-washed to remove visible dirt and mildew and create the best scenario for long-lasting results. And, as needed, our experienced professionals will perform light carpentry repairs.
Apply: All joints will be silicone-caulked to keep out moisture. To make sure the paint will adhere optimally, we’ll apply rust-resistant primers and industrial finishes to any metal areas to be painted, and oil primer to any bare wood before we apply the top coat. As skilled commercial painters, we use a variety of techniques – using brushes, rollers, and sprayers – to guarantee the flawless results that you expect from seasoned professionals.
