Power washing is a VERY important part of the exterior painting process. If you skip this step it will cause you to lose a lot of time and money on your project. The reason this step is important is mechanical adhesion. The paint will stick to any surface it is sprayed on. If you have a layer of dust on your wall, then the paint will stick to the dirt instead of your wall. This can cause issues with peeling, air bubbles, and overall lower quality of the paint job.
Masking is a very essential aspect of painting. This will need to be the second step to prevent a lot of wasted time and effort, but also save you from a big headache later on. Masking should be performed after power washing as well. This will prevent the masking from being removed from the power wash and also provide a clean surface for the tape to stick to.
We will pull back the rocks to apply a protective coating to the foundation of your house. This will create a barrier to help protect your house from the elements. This very important for protection against termites. Compare Cost To Paint Interior House In Phoenix wisely to avoid unexpected costs.
The foundation gets a lot of beating from the elements. It’s also the first place to start peeling on your paint job. The reason is because it’s exposed to so much water and moisture. To prevent this, we want to make sure there is good chemical and mechanical adhesion to the surface. This is where we will apply a water-proof primer called DRY-LOCK.
It’s very important NOT to paint over paint that is already peeling. It will create air bubbles, continue the peeling, and many other problems that will reduce the quality of your paint job. This will need to be addressed immediately. We will scrape any areas where the paint is peeling in order to improve the adhesion of the new paint, as well as improve the over aesthetic and quality of your paint job.
Repairs will be done on any imperfections on the exterior surfaces of your home. There are many stucco homes in Arizona and will need to be repaired accordingly using a custom stucco patches. If your house is made of stucco, then it needs to be repaired with stucco.
If you or any other painter uses a different material to fill in the cracks and repair the walls, then there will be inconsistencies in the final look of your exterior. It’s very important to use a consistent material across the entire surface of your home. If not, then you will have light or dark spots in your final paint job.
