What services do Exterior House Painters offer?

When it comes to exterior painting, there are a ton of different services our painters offer that cover much more than the mere painting of exterior walls and surfaces. If you're looking for exterior house painting services but aren't sure what you can request or expect from our professional painters, stick with us to find out more below.

Here's a list of some of the main services that are typically covered by exterior house painters:

1. Painting exterior walls

Once you start to notice that the colour of your home's exterior has started to fade or you can see some peeling and chipping paint it's time to apply a fresh new coat of paint.

If you're looking for someone to paint the exterior of your home our tradesmen have got you covered. Our experienced painters can completely transform your home's look and handle any other exterior painting project that you might have.

When it comes to repainting your whole house, the job extends a lot further than just applying a fresh coat of paint. These sorts of projects require a lot of work and precision and can give your home that fresh new look that you've always dreamed of.

Here's what you can expect from a typical house painting job.

Inspecting the parameter

Once our exterior painters arrive at your property the first thing they'll do is walk around the parameter of your home and note down any areas that may need special attention. If your home hasn't been painted in a while odds are it will require some repairs beforehand. That's because the exterior surface of your home is constantly exposed to the sun, rain and all other elements which can degrade the structure and look of your exterior paint job. Once our painters determine which spots they'll need to pay closer attention to, they'll go over the details with you and consult you on the type and colour of paint you want to go with. While not all painting companies offer colour consultation services, our painters will always be open to any questions and concerns you may have regarding your choice of colour, design and so on. Once you've gone over all the details about the project with your painters, they'll be able to get down to work and start transforming your property bit by bit.

Power washing and prep work

The second and often times most important part of any painting project includes preparing the surface of the home for painting.

To properly prepare your home's exterior walls, our painters will start by scraping off any loose paint, before they continue onto washing the entire surface using a power washer. This is particularly the case if you have a lot of chipping and peeling paint that needs to be scraped off first so you won't have to do a lot of cleaning up once the pressure blows many of these pieces throughout your yard. Once they're done power washing and scraping off any loose paint, they'll move onto sanding the entire house, focusing on certain spots where the existing paint meets raw wood. This will help the new coat of primer and paint stick better to the surface, achieving a high-quality finish.

During this process, they'll not only clean the entire surface of your house, but they'll also tend to all the areas that require special attention, which might include minor holes, cracks, nail holes, rot and other similar issues. They'll use this time to address all of these issues by repairing, replacing or recaulking the affected areas, depending on the situation.

Another part of the process that's equally important as prepping the surface for painting includes protecting the surroundings from accidental spills and other similar accidents. This includes covering all nearby plants, outdoor furniture and other personal items as well as covering any windows, doors and other spots that won't be painted.

Priming and Painting

Once they're done preparing the surface, they'll start applying a coat of primer either on the entire surface of your home, or they'll do spot priming, which includes priming areas where you can see bare, exposed wood. This depends mainly on the state of your exterior walls as well as your particular requests.

Once the coat of primer has fully dried, they'll continue onto the painting. They'll apply two coats of paint on your siding, windows, trim, gutters, fascia, and so on, making sure you're satisfied with the results before they clean up and leave your property.

2. Painting and staining decks, patios and fences

Some of the other common exterior painting projects requested by homeowners include painting or staining decks, patios, fences, sheds, garages and so on. All of these can be requested as extra services for an additional cost. Here's what you can expect to receive if you request these services:

Power washing and prep work

As with any exterior paint job, the surface needs to be washed and prepped properly so the paint can adhere better and you can be happy with the end result. To protect the surface and prolong the lifespan of your paint or stain, our professional painters will clean the surface using a power washer, removing all the dirt, dust and debris build-up as well as any moss, mould and mildew that has formed over the course of time. Once the surface is cleaned properly they'll note down any areas that need addressing, such as holes, cracks and other surface imperfections so they can fix them before they head onto the next step.

Additionally, they'll make sure the surrounding area is protected and well covered, so that all your plants, furniture and surrounding items are protected from paint spills and splatter.

Priming and painting

Depending on whether you decide to paint or stain your fence, patio, deck or shed, your professional painters will be able to consult you on the proper painting materials and supplies needed to get the job done right and achieve the best results. They'll also be able to help you decide which colour or shade would work best in your particular situation so you can boost your curb appeal and improve the overall look of your home.

There are several different methods our painting contractors may use when it comes to painting or staining your home's deck, patio, fencing and so on. They can either choose to go with a roller and a brush or they can also spray paint the surface using an airless sprayer or a conventional spray gun. Ether way, you can rest assured that they'll achieve maximum results and provide you with impeccable service from start to finish.

These are some of the main services our exterior painters offer. If you need an additional service that's not included on the list make sure to talk to your painter and see if they can incorporate it in their painting package.

No matter which service you need, you can rest assured that our professional house painters will provide you with the best possible results, delivering a high-quality service and an amazing paint job.

Frequently asked questions

How many coats of paint does the exterior of a house need?

Same as with interior paint jobs, you will typically need to apply two coats of paint to get the job done right and provide the proper coverage. In some cases, paint contractors can recommend using one coat of primer and one coat of paint. However, this is only recommended when your home's exterior walls are in good condition and don’t require two coats of paint. If you're looking to achieve the best results and get your paint job to last longer and look better, you can go with one coat of primer and two coats of paint. This technique is also recommended if you're switching from a dark colour to a lighter one.

What temperature is best to paint your house outside?

The maximum and minimum temperature range can vary a lot, depending on the type of paint you're using. However, it's recommended that you use oil-based paint in temperatures of 4°C to 32°C and paint in temperatures of 10°C to 30°C when it comes to latex paint. The reason why you should stick to these recommended temperatures when painting the exterior of your home is so you can get the maximum results and allow the paint to dry properly and bind together well.

Is flat or satin better for exterior paint?

No matter if you use a roller or a brush, flat paints are easier to work with and do not leave any lap marks. They provide a modern look and can hide surface flaws very well. The only downside to flat paints is that they cannot be washed or scrubbed clean, which makes it impossible to maintain them. While satin paints require more care in order to avoid lap marks, both during painting and when retouching certain spots, professional painters typically recommend a satin finish for exterior walls as it's easier to maintain and looks great. However, the choice always comes down to your own personal preference and taste.

How long should an exterior house painting last?

If done properly, using quality paint and following all preparation steps to the point, an exterior paint job should last around 5-10 years. Other factors that play a role in how often you need to repaint your home include the type of surface you're painting, the quality of the previous paint job, the damage from outside elements, and the way you maintain your home’s exterior.
