Prep For Exterior House Painting

Before you paint the exterior of your house, there are a few steps you will need to take before you get started.

First of all, you will want to test out the paint you are going to use before getting started. Prepare, prime, and paint an inconspicuous spot. After waiting for the paint to dry, look for any adhesion or compatibility problems that may have happened before proceeding with the rest of the application.

Second, you will want to make sure that you have a good paint scraper, wire brush, sandpaper or power washer to remove all surface contamination such as oil, grease, loose paint, rust, mold, or mildew.

Finally, you are ready to get started painting. Make sure that you don’t paint immediately after rain, in the fog, or in temperatures below 50 degrees (unless the paint says it is okay).
