Our Exterior House Painting Process:
Power Washing the House
Whether you intend to have your home repainted or just want to have its exterior cleaned, power washing is always the first step. Before getting started, we protect and cover your plants, entrances, walkways and delicate woodwork from being damaged by pressure and dirt.
Scraping the Exterior
Once the exterior is clean and dry, our painting experts will scrape off the loose, old paint, repair small surface damages and treat mildew.
Caulking the Exterior
We always caulk place such as seams and corners, above door and window trim, and where trim meets siding - or where any material meets a different kind of material, such as trim over masonry. JB Painting Services, Inc. uses high-grade exterior caulk. Better caulks (such as silicone) actually bond to surfaces like glue and resist breaking down.
Sanding the Exterior
Then the surface gets sanded. It is important to feather or blend and minimize the hard edge visible at the seam of where paint was removed and where it remains. Feathering is especially important on wood siding since siding is smoother than say a painted brick surface and surface irregularities are more noticeable on smooth siding.
Priming the Exterior
We recommend to use a quality primer before prior to the actual paint. Your new paint will actually have a greater longevity.
Finishing Coat of Paint
Depending on the style of your house, either brushing & rolling (single level ranch style) or airless paint sprayer is preferred.
Remember, the exterior has to stand up to extremes – so thorough cleaning, choosing a quality primer and paint will be crucial to the longevity of the paint job. More about how a house paint project is estimated, you can read here.
