At Wall Works Painting, we often say that a successful painting project is 90% preparation and 10% application. The secret to a flawless, enduring finish isn’t just in the paint or the brush strokes; it lies in the meticulous preparation work that sets the stage for the transformation. In this blog post, we take you behind the scenes of our exterior paint preparation process, including an exclusive video of our professional painters prepping a house for a paint refresh.
Our team of dedicated painters goes above and beyond to ensure that your home is perfectly primed for a new coat of exterior paint.
Our preparation process
Begins with a thorough inspection of your home’s walls. We look for any signs of damage, such as cracks, holes, or peeling paint. These imperfections are carefully repaired to ensure a smooth, even surface. This step is crucial as it helps the new paint adhere correctly and prevents future problems.
Next, we move and cover furniture and flooring to protect them from paint drips or splatter. We also tape off trim, windows, and doors with painter’s tape to ensure clean lines and to prevent paint from getting on areas it shouldn’t. Our team takes the utmost care in safeguarding your belongings, as shown in the video.
Following the protective measures
We proceed with the cleaning process. Walls can accumulate dirt, dust, and grime over time, which can interfere with the paint’s adhesion. Our team meticulously cleans your walls, ensuring they’re as pristine as possible before the painting begins.
Once the walls are clean, we apply a primer. The primer serves several essential functions: it provides a uniform base for the paint, increases paint durability, and ensures the true color of the paint shines through. The video showcases our team’s methodical approach to priming, ensuring every inch of the wall is covered.
Our preparation process is detailed and exhaustive. At Wall Works Painting, we believe that the time and effort spent on preparation directly impact the quality and longevity of the final result.
We hope this peek into our process and the accompanying video has given you a deeper understanding of the importance of proper preparation in a painting project. Remember, a beautiful paint job is more than just a fresh coat of paint – it’s a lot of hard work and meticulous detail that begins long before the first stroke of color touches your walls.
