“Must-Knows” For Exterior Painting
If you are looking for a great home improvement project to give your home an updated look, feel and curb appeal consider an exterior painting project. Exterior painting is a cost effective way to make a world of difference, improving its look and increasing its value. When undergoing an exterior paint job consider these exterior painting tips:
- Consider Mother Nature: Planning is essential for any painting or home improvement project. Depending on the season of the year the paint process can vary, and the look of the colour can fluctuate. Having a good understanding of the pattern of your local weather, natural climate and the seasonal change will determine your homes exterior paint. When painting choose a dry season when you have little rain and reduced moisture to paint the exterior. Paint often requires time to dry and will often not stick to damp surfaces.
- Choose Quality Over Cost: If you use quality paint and painting materials you will require less paint and it will last substantially longer. Quality paints better cover the exterior of the home while using better technology. Home owners are often tempted to go with a lesser quality paint for the sake of cost but the less expensive brands often wear much quicker and require repair or reapplication.
- Scrape & Wash The Exterior: Paint often doesn’t stick to uneven, coarse or grimy/dirty surfaces. Before you begin exterior painting it is recommended to thoroughly clean the exterior before paint is applied. After the exterior is cleaned it is important to let the exterior dry before the new coat of paint is put on and any old paint should be scraped off to ensure the new paint sticks.
- Do Not Paint Old Or Worn Siding: Paint will often not stick to old wood or decaying siding if your siding is old or worn out it may need to be replaced. Paint will continue to weaken the rotting or decaying exterior system. If your exterior is rotting you can either replace the small area, replace the full exterior or use a wood filler.
- Use Primer: Even when buying a paint & primer mix (all-in-one solution) it is still recommended to apply an exterior primer to the home. Primer is needed if you are drastically changing or altering the colour of the exterior walls or siding. An exterior primer helps to cover up colors and stains that were left on the wall while also adding a layer that allows the top coat of paint to look evenly coated and stick to the wall.
- Combine Gallons Of Paint For Uniformity: Combining the paint that was purchased into a larger mixing pail is called “boxing”. Boxing will help a painter avoid colour inconsistencies and ensure a uniform and evenly applied for a paint job. Boxing involves mixing and pouring multiple gallons of paint into a larger bucket and stirring the paint thoroughly to evenly mix the paint. Boxing helps to ensure that any mistakes in mixing at the paint store won’t translate to the exterior of a home or business.
- Prepare & Protect The Landscape: Proper preparation and planning is essential, it is easy to forget and overlook just how messy things get while painting the exterior of the home. Before you begin painting ensure you protect the grass, driveway, flowers, bushes as well as any other plants beneath the area you will be painting. It is recommended to relocate or cover up any exterior furniture, grills, hoses, etc. When painting use drop cloths and coverings, arranging them in a corner or safely wrap them around the objects for protection.
- Paint from Top To Bottom: Beginning your painting from the very top and painting downwards helps to manage and minimize streaks and dripping, working with the natural gravity instead of against it. Drips are unavoidable; however, this technique will help you to feather out errors and have the best looking exterior paint job possible.
