North Vancouver Exterior Painting
The outer areas of a property are what make its first impression, both on the real estate market and to those guests, visitors and clients who come knocking. Many property owners are quick to scrub surfaces indoors but when it comes to the outside, even basic maintenance is often overlooked. If your house or other structures are in need of a sprucing up, trust a Pickle Painter with your North Vancouver exterior painting services.
Painting the exterior of a structure is much different than treating an interior space. Inside, surfaces are often smooth and pre-treated or finished, making it possible to achieve an even finish. More often than not, outdoor spaces are made up of many different materials, from wood siding to vinyl siding, stucco and brick, it is a lot to contend with. In addition to treating materials, a fresh paint job should always involve proper preparation, which is a complex process. It is always best to trust a pro for the best results, start to finish.
What Goes Into An Outdoor Paint Job?
When you want the exterior of your home painted, getting the best result means using a multi-step approach to prep your canvas and apply a fresh coat of paint. If you are hoping to improve the look of an aged space, chances are that it has been painted before. Over time, the elements can mean havoc for your outdoor spaces, which can mean flakes of loose paint. Simply painting over these areas means bald spots are sure to come about as paint falls away.
Simply taking a wire brush or putty knife to these areas can cause damage to materials, which means costly repairs and replacements. In the same way that textures can be difficult to clean, they can be difficult to paint. Using a brush or rollers on heavily textured areas can leave bald specks or untreated areas behind, which looks awful. Hiring a professional means access to specialized equipment designed to eliminate these areas.
Professional painters should not only be equipped with specialized tools for the job but the right technical logic to treat any space and material. Bare wood, for example, will absorb paint different than siding will, so it is important to understand exactly how to navigate the make-up of each space. By creating a treatment plan according to the materials, age, and condition of your structures, it is possible to create a customized treatment plan, designed for success.
