We have dedicated staff for all our services. Trade-specific teams, leaders, and project managers are essential to providing expert and reliable service; in part, these added values are what separates us from other companies.

Exterior Paint Preparations For Your Raleigh Home

Our painters give your home a clean exterior finish that promises lasting protection. First, we don’t shortcut the preparation process. We wash the entire house with cleaning solutions to kill all organic growth. 

After waiting a few days, we return to start prepping. First, we make sure all loose paint gets scraped and primed. We cut out all old caulk that has split, then fill all cracks and expansion joints with heavy-bodied exterior acrylic caulk, like Sherwin-Williams Maxflex. 

If you have old masonite siding on your home, we check all siding for nail holes and fill them with caulking or putty. If the siding is damaged, our siding replacement staff are in-house. Our exterior painters make sure each painting step is done with integrity and performed in a sensible manner that maintains compliance with manufacturer specs.

Paint Application: Spray vs. Brush

Spraying and brushing house paint both provide unique advantages. Spraying provides a highly uniform finish, which is recommended when applying dark colors to large surfaces. It also minimizes the number of coats needed when changing paint colors.

Hand-brushing paint in specific applications provides added durability on textured and damaged surfaces. Hand brushing is also best at preserving delaminating siding. But there are some drawbacks. Hand brushing often shows unsightly brush marks on glossy finishes.

We provide both applications and can also combine spraying and backbrushing. We recommend establishing the best possible results for your home and budget. One of the most critical factors in delivering a high level of service is removing baseless and subjective preferences. Our service will never push things that you don’t need.
