EXTERIOR PAINTING SERVICES FOR SAN DIEGO HOMEOWNERS
If you’ve been thinking about updating the look of your home, adding a fresh coat of paint to the exterior can be an excellent choice. Not only will a new paint job update the appearance of your home, but it can also help you attract buyers if you’re interested in selling. While you may be tempted to handle the project on your own, working with us is a lot easier and more effective.
1. POWER WASHING
The first step in prepping your home or commercial building for new paint is cleaning the exterior. Our crew will power wash the exterior to remove dirt, mildew and debris. A clean surface is crucial to ensure your new paint adheres and lasts for many years to come. Power washing can take as little as an hour, but may take several hours for larger buildings.
All surfaces that need to be protected from paint will be masked off, such as hardware, windows and gutters.
Any leftover loose paint that is still on the exterior surface after pressure washing will be scraped off to finish cleaning the surface for best paint adhesion.
We caulk around any areas that need protection, such as windows, doors and wood fascia. We will inspect all trim to ensure any loose boards are secured.
Before painting with your chosen color, we will apply primer to all bare areas which helps improve the adhesion of your paint to your exterior surface, extending the lifespan of your paint.
6. TRIM PAINT
Trim is usually painted by hand, and a lot of times we have to apply two quotes for coverage.
7. DOOR PAINT
Any exterior doors (entry and garage) are painted with a smooth spray for a finished look.
ACCENTS AND FIXTURES
8. ACCENTS AND FIXTURES
If any accents or fixtures are to be painted, this will be the last step.
9. CLEAN UP
Once the painting is finished, we will remove all the prepping equipment, from the masking to the tarps. You will not need to worry about a mess when we leave; our crew will remove everything we used to complete the project.
The final, and most important, step is your inspection. First the crew foreman will inspect the job and fix any issues. Once he has approved the work, he will accompany you with a thorough final inspection to ensure your satisfaction.
