Painting / June 18, 2021
From the weather, sun, wind, and rain, your home will need a fresh new look every so often. Exterior painting is a great update to any home, and it’s a great way to change your home’s overall look if you are going for a makeover.
Painting your home isn’t as simple as buying your favorite color and starting right away. There are a few steps you will need to take first. For example, your home will need to be pressure washed first to make sure it is clean and ready to go.
All loose or flaking paint on your home will need to be scraped and removed to make sure you have an even surface to paint on and that your final look will not be influenced by anything underneath. Primer is the next step to prepare your house’s exterior for the coming paint. This will give long-lasting results.
Painting your home can be challenging depending on the type of home you have. If you live in a one-story ranch, a simple A-frame ladder should be all you need to reach all exterior points of your home. But, if your house is a multi-story building, multi-leveled, and more, you will need some help to complete the project safely and with quality.
Professional craftspeople are a great local resource to help your home improvement projects go smoothly. If you do not have the time or ability to complete a DIY for exterior painting, hiring professionals might be the way to go. A professional painter will be able to prep your home for the painting and complete the project in a convenient window of time, according to your personal schedule, needs, and budget. Call your local craftspeople to schedule an estimate with different companies to meet and discuss what will help you the best.
