Your siding, together with your residential roofing, virtually make up your entire exterior appeal. That’s why it’s essential to ensure that their colors, patterns, and textures match and go well together if you want to upgrade your home’s looks. The best way to get a good exterior painting job is to trust the work to the professionals. However, it still pays to learn a few common painting mistakes so you know the quality of the service you’re getting.
Let our skilled and experienced painters from Masters Roofing show you some important things to watch out for on your exterior painting service.
Just like how professional roofers will follow all steps in a roof repair job to the letter, a good painter will also take all the essential steps without skipping anything. Exterior painting almost always requires the use of a primer to help improve the bond between the paint and the surface. Rarely, painters will opt not to use primer but this only happens when there is already an existing non-glossy coat present on the surface. All in all, if your contractor skips the primer step or if they use paint-primer mixtures, ask them whether they have a good reason for it.
Insufficient Surface Preparation
You’ll get a better-looking and high-quality paint job if the surface is thoroughly cleaned and lightly abraded. Professional painters should always do a light sanding to make sure the paint adheres to your siding strongly. They should also wash and rinse the surface before application to make sure no dirt and debris are buried under layers of paint and primer.
