Excellent Exterior Home Painting Starts with Effective Prep Work
You can think of the exterior painted surface of your home as one huge canvas. In this case, the canvas has been sitting outside in the rain and snow, the wind and the weather, and exposed to the natural elements for many years. If a painter chose such a canvas to paint on, the options would be very limited due to all the wear and tear and build-up of foreign materials on the canvas. That’s why our Salem exterior home painting process beings with prep work.
First, we pressure wash the exterior of your home to remove all the grime, mildew and moss, the dust, dirt, and detritus that have accumulated over the years. Then we scrape the entire surface to remove all the wear and tear, the peeling paint and any other remaining materials that are extraneous to our objectives. Once we’ve arrived at a scoured and polished exterior home surface, then we’re ready to paint!
Did we mention that we also thoroughly seal the cracks and crevices in your home with NP-150 SONOLASTIC caulking? This procedure ensures that the painted surfaces of your Salem home will be weatherproof and waterproof.
A Perfect Primer For Your Exterior Home Painting
The first coat of paint is the primer. The primer is just as important as the final coat because the primer further seals your home and serves as an especially effective surface upon which to lay the final coat of paint. And we use only the finest paints – Sherwin Williams, Miller, and Rodda – for both primer and final coats. We can also use specialty bonding primers if you need them.
Express Your Personality
The final coat is where you get to be creative and chose color pairings that give your Salem home its unique color scheme. SFW Painting has extensive experience with helping clients choose multiple colors of house paint, from body and trim to different colored fascia and walls.
