Home Improvement Tips: Painting the Exterior
As your local roof cleaning professionals, there’s nothing we enjoy more than restoring your roof and exterior surfaces to like-new condition. While our soft wash roof cleaning system seemingly works miracles, it does not replace a coat of paint. Facing an exterior painting project can seem daunting, so we’ve shared a few simple steps with you here to help get your project going smoothly.
When the paint on the exterior of your home becomes faded, don’t be discouraged. Like all other things in life, painting the exterior of your home comes down to the preparation. After you’ve calculated how much paint you need, what type of paint you need, and what colors you like, you can start cleaning the exterior of your home. Be sure to give enough time between washing it and painting, so the surface has time to dry properly. Choosing a day where the temperature is between 75 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit will lead to best results. Sanding and priming areas that look rough will ensure a smooth finished coat. Depending on the types of paint you choose, you’ll need to select the appropriate brushes. You’ll also need some painter’s tape to paint off different areas, such as your trim.
We hope that you’ve found these tips helpful in planning for your exterior paint project. Once you paint your home and decide the roof needs a good cleaning to compete with the exterior, contact your local roof cleaning professionals for a sparkling finish.
