A quality exterior paint job will last for many years. The key to achieving this level of quality lies in the surface prep and product selection.

When it comes to painting the exterior of your home and buildings, the prepping of the surface is a critical step. Any mold or mildew must be killed. The surface must then be throughly washed and rinsed so that the product adhears as intended to the surface. Your home is then inspected to identify any rotted or damaged wood. Cracks are repaired and unnecessary gaps are filled. Any rusty nails are treated with a rust destroyer product to prevent further breakdown.
Different types of products are recommended based on your particular exterior surface. For example, a light color super paint is typically best for vinyl siding, as it disguises any natural warping in the siding. With hardy board, it is important that it is primed with a product capable of bonding to the specific surface. New wood siding is best primed with an oil based primer, prior to applying 2 paint coats on both sides of the wood for extra protection from moisture and the elements. It is important to prime unpainted brick with a masonary primer that is breathable. Regardless of if your home has wood siding, hardy board, vinyl siding or a brick surface, we will recommend the appropriate paint type and best colors for the job.
As with the the interior painting process, we work from the highest to lowest surface when applying stain and paint. Two coats of paint are applied. For previously unpainted surfaces, an appropriate primer is applied prior to the coats of paint. Since coastal Alabama has a high humidity level and receives a lot of rainfall, we typically add a special mildicide to the exterior paint. We’ve found that it helps control and slow the growth of the mildew. We take all the necessary steps needed to extend the life of your paint job.
