Why Supply & Apply?
Surface preparation, Priming, Painting, Clean-up, and Inspection.
1. Surface Preparation
The first step to doing a good job is to ensure a clean surface. Should any mildew be present, we will hand wash the area with TSP or a cleaning solution. Power Washing removes all loose dirt, mildew, and chalking paint to provide a firm base for the finish coat to grab onto. Power washing can also brighten up your sidewalks, driveways, and rock walls by removing grease, dirt, and moss. However, due to the power of the machines, only a person with specific training on this equipment will be performing this step in the process.
3. Drop Cloths
We will supply our own heavy-duty canvas drop cloths. We will place them all around the home where we will be performing any scraping. This will cover up your plants, cement or dirt and allows us to have an easier clean up at the end of the day. This will be beneficial to you as we can pick up all the scrapings, and, when the job is complete, it looks as if we are not even there.
Only paintable latex caulking will be used on your home. Silicone caulking is not paintable and must replaced prior to a paint job, as it is primarily designed for bathrooms.
This process is used on older, wood framed windows, often in heritage homes to preserve the authenticity. Many modern windows do not need this step, and we can provide you with advice on the windows.
Sanding is an option level of preparation that rounds the edges of a scraped area. This can be done with a belt sander, disk sander, or by hand, as appropriate. Sanding only helps with the look of the finished product and has no effect on the life of the paint job. If sanding is done, it is suggested to only do so in highly visible areas, such as the front door. Edges will be rounded and smoother, but not removed completely. Completely removing the paint is an uncommon, costly and time intensive procedure.
Priming is done to seal any porous surfaces or stains, and provide a flat finish for the topcoat to adhere. In most cases, this is done on the bare wood spots after scraping, sanding, or paint removal is done. Priming exposed areas, prior to the finish coat, is essential for a paint job to last. Above all, we will make sure to choose high quality primers to best adhere to the surface type and conditions, such as metal primers or stain blockers.
9. Painting Coat
When painting the exterior, its important to note that using a cheaper paint wont fetch you a great return on your painting investment or do a very good job protecting the exterior surfaces from the elements. On all exterior surfaces we recommend the use of Dulux Weathershield typically in a low-sheen. Furthermore, if you have the presence of masonry render, we would highly recommend the use of a high build elastomastic coating which delivers a paint like appearance with the film builds twice that of standard decorative paint for enhanced crack bridging performance.
10. Finish Coat
The finish coat will provide you, the homeowner, with the color and gloss level you wish for your home. Apart from this, the finish coat we use provides the protection from the elements and ultra violet rays that weather your home.
11. Clean Up
Clean Up is done daily, as well as at the completion of our work. Paint chips will be removed and all our materials are neatly stored.
