A siding repair is essential if you have any damage to the exterior of your home. Rotten siding and ineffective weatherization are the number one reason for failed paint and correcting these issues could save you thousands of dollars by extending the lifetime of your paint.

Are siding repairs necessary before painting begins?

At heart, SFW Painting is not only a painting contractor, but we’re a full-service exterior contractor. Currently, we have eight construction crews and over 30 journeyman and master level carpenters on call, ready to address any issues from flashing to dry rot in the Portland, Vancouver, and metro areas. The process of house painting may seem simple, but a great paint job takes attention to detail. Each step during the process is essential, including preparation, which we believe is key to an exceptional paint job.

Occasionally, our paint supervisors will notice a minor siding, flashing, or structural detail repair that should be addressed before moving forward. The painting project is only as good as the building it is applied to. Suppose there is any damage to the siding, windows, doors, or any other exterior issues, they must be addressed before painting. Otherwise, the painting will not turn out as well as you would like.
