At , we like to view your home before we provide an estimate. Why? Well, paints and costs can vary based on what kind of materials you have on the exterior of your property. Stucco, wood siding, aluminum siding, cement, and brick will all be treated differently.
We also need to know how the climate and day-to-day weather affects your home as these can have a huge impact as well. Another detail that is important is when the last paint job occurred and what type of paint was used. All these details help us determine the final budget.
How We Prep for the Paint Job
When we agree to paint your exterior, we look for any signs of damage that will need to be fixed. The painters we work with will remove mold and rotting wood. They will also fill in holes, cracks, and pits with putty. In addition, they will sand the surface to take care of any old paint or bubbling paint.
It is important the surfaces have been fixed and smoothed before new paint layers are applied. Exterior painting is a detailed job, so it is essential you call professionals if you want the job done well.

Frequently Asked Exterior Painting Questions
Why should I repaint my exterior?
Exterior painting is more than just making your house look amazing. While that’s certainly part of it, exterior painting also protects your home and exterior siding from rain and other harsh elements from the weather.
Consequently, keeping your exteriors routinely painted will help prolong the lifespan of your siding. To that end, your exterior should be repainted every 7 to 10 years.
