Here at Radcliffe Painting, our goal is to give you the best finished product by taking the proper steps and only using the best materials. Although you may think painting a space is as easy as just getting the paint on the walls, there is a whole list of things that should be done before the paint is even applied. Here is some step-by-step information about the process:
- For example, the proper steps to painting the exterior of a home is to first power wash the house. Make sure to remove all the dirt and loose paint so it’s a clean surface for the best application of fresh paint.
- Next is to scrape the remaining loose paint chips and sand any and all non-smooth wood.
- Then we caulk and seal all split or cracked areas of the home, and any bare wood will be spot primed with a special primer sealer.
- Lastly, before the paint is applied, we mask and protect all the surroundings of the house – Including concrete rocks, decks, windows, etc.
Although it may seem like an easy or simple process, the steps we as painters make before even applying paint is what creates a lasting and beautiful end result. We hope that in reading these simple steps, that you will be more comfortable with the process.
