Few home-maintenance projects are as important as exterior painting because paint and caulking form the first line of defense against rain, snow, and ice. And a nice paint job will enhance the curb appeal and resale value of your home, too. You want to repair and repaint as soon as you notice paint starting to crack, blister, and peel. Ignoring these problems will lead to a much more extensive—and expensive— job. Whether you’re planning to paint the house yourself or hire FRESHLOOK to do the job.
FRESHLOOK Exterior Painting
For the new paint to adhere to the surface, Fresh look will clean the house’s exterior of all dirt, grime, mildew, and chalky residue. A power Washer provides the easiest way for us to accomplish this, but hand scrubbing with a stiff-bristle brush is just as effective and often doesn’t take much longer because it requires little preparation and setup time. Any nail holes we fill with exterior-grade putty. Once the putty is fully cured it gets sanded flush. We apply new caulking around windows, doors, and trim, Fresh look can paint directly over the old painted surface as long as it’s in good condition if it is not a coat of primer is recommended. We scrape and sand any spots where the old paint has blistered or flaked off. And we prime any bare wood before we paint it.
