Exterior Residential Painting

Your Exterior Is Important

Pulling into your driveway and seeing a freshly painted exterior gives you an exultant feeling every time you come home. If you are considering selling your house, the exterior is the first part potential buyers will see. A positive impression will generate enthusiasm, and a negative impression may lose the sale. While many people think of painting their home's interior, the exterior is sometimes neglected. Bring your exterior up to par with a fresh paint job.

We Paint Most Exterior Structures

Your house isn't the only thing people see when they pull into your driveway. The next time you come home, look around with fresh eyes and view your property as a visitor would.

  • Detached garages
  • Guest houses
  • Saunas
  • Workshops
  • Garden sheds
  • Porches and decks
  • Railings, shutters ad trim

  • Barns and stables

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the best time of year to paint the exterior of a house?

When all conditions are met—the temperature falls between 50-90 degrees Fahrenheit—and you have properly prepared your home with pressure washing (or another cleaning method), then you are ready for some exterior house painting! Generally speaking, we would agree that fall is one of the best times of year for exterior house painting because temperatures tend to stay within optimal parameters and there isn't too much humidity in the air. Spring is also an acceptable time since temperatures are usually milder compared with summer months; however spring may bring more rain showers than fall which could potentially delay your project if conditions become too wet.

When Should You Not Paint Outside of House?

The biggest factor in knowing when you should paint outside is understanding when you shouldn’t. Specifically, you should avoid painting outside if there are forecasted temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit or higher than 90 degrees Fahrenheit within the next 48 hours. Additionally, you should avoid painting during high winds or periods of excessive humidity, as these can reduce the effectiveness of your paint job and lead to cracks, chips, or peeling in your paint over time.

Is Pressure Washing My House Before Painting Worth It?

In addition to avoiding certain times of year for exterior house painting, it’s also important to make sure that you properly prepare your surface before applying fresh coats of paint. One way to do this is by pressure washing your home before painting. Pressure washing removes dirt and debris on the surface while also helping to remove any old layers of chipped or cracked paint from previous jobs. It takes a lot of labor and expertise; however, it pays off in the end by giving you a smooth canvas with which to work on for a great looking finish.
