Although the cold season is finally here, there is no harm than to prepare your home for exterior painting. There are a couple of things you need to do to get your home ready for exterior house painting Sumner. You have the choice of just hiring a professional or you can do it on your own. If you plan to do the exterior painting yourself, here are some things that you have to do first:
Clean it. One of the most difficult but most important aspects of any painting job is cleaning before painting. The exterior walls mostly collect a lot of dust, grime and even mould. If you do not clean the surface walls, you will just be wasting your time in painting after.
Hose the walls and use a sponge and soapy water. Scrub and remove the dirt and grime. If you have a high-pressure cleaner, you can use it to easily remove the dirt. Many painting service providers will use a high-pressure cleaner to get the results you really want so if you get their services, you will be able to get that clean wall.
Sanding and filling. This is also another important part of preparing your walls before you finally paint the exterior. You will have to get rid of cracked paint and sand it until the area is smooth. Make sure to fill and sand properly since you do not want an uneven surface to paint.
Priming. Don’t forget to prime the exterior as this will cause an unsightly, patchy finish.
Once the preparation is all done and then you can finally paint your home to make it look as fresh as the day you bought it.
