WHAT ARE THE PROPER STEPS TO PAINT AN EXTERIOR
Ever wonder if you can paint your exterior yourself? Or Maybe you’ve had your home repainted and aren’t sure they did the job correctly. With my two decades of painting knowledge im going to walk you through the proper steps to paint your exterior so it lasts!
PRESSURE WASH – First thing your going to need to do is clean your home. The pros will apply a cleaning solution to your home like Simple Green, Krud Kutter, Bleach/ Water solution with a weed sprayer (Make sure to wet any plant life with water before applying any cleaners and follow instructions on back of preferred cleaner) . If your pressure washer has a siphon hose you can use your washer to apply the solution. once solution has been applied you can wash off your siding. (Carefull not to damage anything most good pressure washers are around 3000-4000 psi and can shred up wood siding if your not careful). If you dont have a pressure washer and your house is small you can scrub your home with bucket and brush. (Kind of like washing a car). Make sure to rinse of your house really well with your garden hose once scrubbed.
