When it comes to the exterior surfaces of your home, it seems like there isn’t much you can do to update them. However, a new coat of paint can completely transform the look of your house. Whether you decide to repaint a small area such as doors or handrails or a larger area such as the entire exterior surface, a fresh coat of paint makes your home look clean and updated.
Why Hire a Professional To Painter?
Exterior painting poses a unique challenge to homeowners. It requires the use of special equipment, preparation, and know-how. ABL Construction is experienced in exterior painting and can relieve you of the headaches involved with this process:
The preparation needed to prepare your home to paint can be just as time-consuming and even more tedious than the painting process itself. Preparation for exterior painting includes:
- Washing: The entire surface needs to be cleaned so that paint will adhere correctly and smoothly.
- Scraping and Sanding: Any old or loose paint needs to be scraped and sanded before repainting.
- Caulking: Caulking is a waterproofing method that serves to prevent water from penetrating cracks between facets of your home. This process is typically repeated during the repainting process.
- Product Selection: Finally, it’s vital to ensure that the products that you select for your exterior painting projects are formulated to be able to withstand the elements. This is not only for cosmetic reasons, but to protect your home as well.
Ladders and/or Scaffolds
Exterior painting is especially challenging because it requires an additional element of safety to consider. Ladders and scaffolds are needed
