Steps for Successful Exterior Painting


  • All flowerbeds, shrubs, walkways, and driveways are covered while home is prepared and painted.

  • All loose paint is scraped from surfaces. All bare areas will be sanded to promote adhesion of primer and to ensure uniform appearance of the topcoat. (Note: Ridges caused by peeling paint will not be completely sanded smooth unless specifically outlined in proposal.)

  • All bare wood is primed with Alkyd (oil) based exterior primer/sealer.

  • All exposed metal is primed with appropriate primer to ensure adhesion of topcoat.

  • All areas are caulked to minimize moisture transfer into surfaces.

  • All surfaces receive two coats top quality acrylic paint (unless otherwise specified in proposal).

  • All surfaces to be painted are cleaned by pressure washer or hand cleaning to remove mildew, dirt, and chalk from paint and other debris from surfaces.

  • All paint chips are removed from customer’s yard, flowerbeds, etc.

  • Customer will review the “Foreman Walk-Through Checklist.”

  • Customer will receive an evaluation survey so that we can continue to develop and improve our services.
