A reputable St. Louis Exterior Painting contractor WILL have a similar process to the one detailed below to ensure a good quality finish!
Our Exterior Painting Process
The first step of the exterior painting process is the power washing of any areas that are to be painted. Power washing allows for the removal of any dirt, debris or mold from the substrates that will be painted and allows for a more uniform finish and better paint adhesion. Once the house has been thoroughly power washed, a sufficient amount of time must be allowed for the services to dry (usually 12-24 hours).
When BRS Custom Painting technicians arrive to begin painting, the crew leader and the homeowner will review the scope of work to ensure the right exterior surfaces are being painted with the correct colors. It is also at this time that the crew leader will discuss a suitable area for our technicians to clean out brushes, spray rigs and rollers. When using high quality tools making sure they are thoroughly clean in a proper manner after completion of work is extremely important. Next the technicians will begin to scrape any loose paint, feather sand, caulk where needed and patch as necessary. It is also at this time that any wood replacement that is required for the scope of work will be replaced and properly primed to ensure a uniform finish.
If the painting is completed using a spray application, all windows and other necessary areas will be protected with paper tape and plastic. These areas also include gutters, downspouts, water spigots, concrete decks and landscaping. All paints used for exterior painting must be of the highest quality due to the fact that exterior surfaces are constantly exposed to harsh elements and must be durable enough to withstand the constant attack of mother nature.
In order to protect any surrounding services from paint overspray BRS Custom Painting technicians use a paint shield and the proper spray tip to ensure minimal overspray. Once all siding has been sprayed, Any trim that is to be painted will be brushed and rolled. Once all of the paint has been applied, BRS Custom Painting technicians will complete a thorough walk-through to ensure the paint coverage is uniform and all necessary areas have been painted. If any areas need touch ups, they will be completed at this time.
