Exterior painting process
A paint job will not last if proper pre-paint preparation techniques are not used. Things like silicone, wax, polish, grease and dirt will prevent the paint from adhering properly. Things might look okay for a short while, but when bad weather arrives, it becomes apparent that pre-paint preparation was sloppy. Before new paint can be applied, its important that all dirt and grime, mold and mildew and chalking or peeling paint be removed. This is important whether the painting is in the interior or the exterior of a property. We don't compromise on preparation or quality products. In all our quotations we specify the products we will be using. This practice protects customers against the practice in the industry to quote on a high quality expensive product but using a different cheaper inferior product.
We utilize a 5-step that guarantees the best results each and every time we take on an exterior painting project. These steps includes:
Step 1 (Set up)
The first step in the process involves cleaning the dirt and mildew from your home’s exterior. This step may involve hand washing, power washing or a combination of both (depends on the condition of the wall). Damp proofing problems will be address at this stage. (view our damp proofing website here .....) Color consultation will be done
Step 4 (Painting)
Step 2 (Prep work)
After the dirt and mildew has been removed, we scrap away all of the loose paint and sand off glossy or peeling surfaces. We repair all cracks and imperfections. Dovetail cracks >1mm and we caulk all gaps to prevent water or air intrusion from occurring.
Step 5 (Clean up)
Since most exterior painting projects takes more that one day to complete, we make certain to cleanup the area at the end of each work day as well as once the project has been completed. This includes removing all paint chips and packing up and storing our materials neatly.
step 3 (Primer)
Next, we prime the complete house or only the areas that needs it.
This is a necessary step before applying the new coat of paint.
step 6 (inspection)
Finally, once the job is completed, we inspect our work and then invite you to inspect it as well. This way, we can be certain your completely satisfied with our work. At Wertan, our goal is to provide you with a high quality, reliable and professional paint service each and every time you call upon us for your exterior painting needs.
