exterior house painting wacolSeeing a house with a new paint is very refreshing to the eye. If you are even selling your house, doing exterior house painting Wacol can even add value to your property. When properly applied, the paint can last for a very long time.

Whether you are going to hire a painter or do it on your own, here are some of the things you are required to do:

Cover your landscape with fabric drop cloths. Make sure your landscape is protected so that they don’t end up with paint drops.

Wash the surface. Wash the exterior first and get rid of the dirt and mildew that was built up over time. You need to do a thorough scrubbing and can even use a pressure washer to remove the dirt easily and more accurately.

Scrap and sand. Once you know that the surface is clean, you will have to remove old paint that has already bubbled, and peeled. After scrapping, you will need to sand the area to make it even. You will also need to do a couple of patching for holes and sand these areas too.

Priming and painting. Place a primer and then end this by painting the surface. Make sure that you have all the materials you need when you start painting such your rollers, brush and even a ladder. Since it is the exterior you are painting you may have to go up and down the ladder many times.

Painting your house exterior is not as easy as it looks since this will require a lot of time especially when you are in the first stages. Getting the help of an exterior painter is actually practical more so if you hire someone from a reputable company. Once the painting is done, your home will look fresh and new and you will be able to appreciate your home all over again.
