With exterior painting, we obviously want to make sure that we are able to get to all of the necessary and make the paint job look and feel perfectly even. At the same time, we want to make sure that the paint job is able to last. Again, as with virtually all of the other painting services that we provide picking the right paint is key to the overall success of the project. We get a lot of questions about how we paint, and other instances that we want to make sure we address on this page.
Combining Different Painting Techniques For Top Results
These days a lot of people are going out and buying paint sprayers thinking that they are the future of paint and people like us are going to run out of business. This is not to throw shade at paint sprayers. What we will say is that we combine different techniques to be able to achieve the best results. Mainly because from time to time you do need to get to those hard to reach places with a fine brush to be able to achieve the effect that you’re looking for.
Helping You Pick The Right Type of Paint
This is something that we talk about quite a bit on the site, we need to be able to pick the right type of paint. There are a couple of things to consider when picking paint. Where you are painting is obviously one of them. We are typically going to be looking for thicker paint for outdoor paint jobs. Also, what you are going to be painting is going to play a huge role in the whole ordeal. Trying to use the same paint on all surfaces is going to give you mixed results. Mainly not an even paint job that you can trust.
How Long Should The Paint Job Last?
It’s important to point out that not only the type of paint that you use is going to play a role in how long you can expect the “effect” to be able to last. Also, the surface that you are painting has a say in this. That’s why when you ask people how often you should paint your home facade they’ll say something like every 5 or 10 years. Give us a call and we’ll be able to give you an estimate that is more realistic considering your situation.
Washing or Painting What’s The Best Choice
You have to take into account the age of the paint job and if you even like it in the first place. What we can do is come in and wash the surface. Once we’re done you’ll be able to see the results first hand. From there, you can decide if you want to keep the surface as is or if you think that it’s time for an upgrade. We won’t be pushing you one way or the other. Just know that we can help you every step of the way.
