Paint Prep is Essential to A Successful Oregon City Exterior Painting
Just like building a house, the exterior painting of your Oregon City home requires preparation that lays a foundation for a solid and remarkable outcome. That’s why we sink so much time and energy into prepping your home for that final magical coat of paint. Prep work for painting starts with pressure washing all exterior paint surfaces, removing the dust and dirt, grime, mildew, and mold. After this, we scrape the exterior to thoroughly remove any remaining detritus and to smooth the surface, so it is clean and ready to be painted.
More than cleaning, prep work is also about protecting your home from the elements. To do this, we seal it with NP-150 SONOLASTIC caulking, which increases the longevity of your new paint finish and keeps the moisture outside.
Steps Taken for Exterior Home Painting: First the Primer, then the Final Coat!
We can’t emphasize enough how important the first coat of paint is – also known as the primer. The primer adds a layer of protection and helps the final coat adhere better to your home, while also increasing the durability and longevity of the overall paint product. Rest assured, we use only first-rate paints from Miller, Rodda, and Sherwin Williams in the primer and final coats.
Once the primer is laid, you choose the color of paint you want to see every time you come home. We encourage you to choose colors that express your personality and taste, and work with you to arrive at the perfect color pairings.
