The Importance of Exterior Painting
A good exterior paint job serves two purposes. First, it beautifies and adds personality and value to your house. Second, and most importantly, paint serves as one of your home’s primary lines of defense against weather, insects and other damage; making it an important aspect of home maintenance to keep up on.
At Hubley Painting and Carpentry, our goal is to provide a long lasting, durable, and beautiful finish on your home. With any type of project, the key to success is in the details. Using the right primers when warranted, meticulous prep work on the exterior of your home, and a spray brush finish. We wanted to share with you some information on the process so you can understand the value brought to the homeowner when you work with us.
Identify Carpentry Issues
When Steve Hubley comes to your home to provide a quote, he is not only looking at the scope of the project but also investigating any carpentry issues. His main goal is to uncover any underlying issues and provide a solution to any part of your home that is exposed or in danger of being compromised. We are proud of the product we produce and warranty our exterior paint job for 5 years.
It is important for any rotted wood on the home to be addressed. Replacing any compromised wood prevents water damage from happening inside your home. If there are carpentry issues, our skilled carpenter will address them as though they were never there.
Prep the Surface
After the carpentry work is completed, the painting crew takes over prepping the exterior. A good adhesive surface is important to increase the longevity of the paint job.
Spray and Brush on Paint
Once the home has been prepped, painting begins. The crew will spray the exterior with high-end paint and then take to scaffolding to brush the paint in. This step allows the seams to be filled with paint as another method of defense. Plenty of time will be given between coats to allow the paint to dry and bond so the surface is properly cured.
The price of painting the exterior of a home can be costly but when you work with Hubley Painting and Carpentry, you get the value back in a beautiful home that is protected from the elements.
