Spraying vs. Brushing Exterior Paint

Our spraying and brushing recommendations are based on the needs of your home for the best exterior painting results, given the unique advantages they each provide. 

Spraying is often the most even finish and is best when applying dark paint colors over large areas. If you’re changing the color of your home exterior, spraying house paint also requires fewer coats. 

Hand-brushing can provide a more durable finish, especially on damaged surfaces or textured materials. However, painting with a brush can create more visible brush marks. When in question, we will select the method that will provide the best results and never recommend unnecessary techniques or services.

Choosing the Best Paint For Each Surface

The paint quality on your home’s exterior will directly affect its longevity. Our expert painters select a quality exterior paint that withstands the elements and can be applied to multiple surfaces under several conditions. 

Home exterior paint requirements vary, so we don’t limit our recommendations to one type. We thoroughly assess your home and consider the potential color to recommend a product that will provide beauty and long-lasting results. 

Our exterior paint recommendations for your Wake Forest home consider products that excel at color retention, moisture protection, and surface adhesion under the weather conditions at the time of application. Luckily, there are exterior paint solutions for each season!
