Richmond Exterior Painting
The exterior of your property says a lot about it. From colour schemes to dirt buildup and aging paint, there are a ton of factors that play in to your home looking worse for the wear. Your outer walls are the first and best line of defence against the elements, so it is no wonder that surfaces begin to look grimy. Professional Richmond exterior painting services can help to update the look of your space and keep it in great condition.
When it comes to home improvement, a fresh paint job is the most affordable way to boost your curb appeal, getting the most bang for your buck. Whether inside or outdoors, there is a difference between fresh paint and a good paint job. From start to finish, our team of Pickle Painters are committed to getting the best results and that means preparation, application and providing tips and tricks on aftercare.
What to Know When Painting Your House
While the principles might be the same, there are some major differences between an indoor and outdoor paint job. Unlike interior walls that have smooth surfaces, exterior areas are made up of multiple materials that are tricky to treat. Stucco, for example, collects dirt, dust and debris that dig deep into textures. These textures can make painting difficult, leaving blank spaces behind.
After years of experience, our team of experts know how to treat all sorts of materials and which type of paint works best. From stucco itself to vinyl siding and wood planks, painting the exterior of a space means creating a catered treatment plan according to the unique needs of your space and that is exactly what we provide.
Prepping surfaces is key to getting a great result, but there is a right way and a wrong way to get the job done. Many property owners are quick to pressure wash outdoor spaces in order to eliminate buildup and blow off loose paint. While this sounds like a no-brainer before getting started on your exterior house painting project, the wrong technique can leave bald patches on stucco or cracks in vinyl.
It is always important to consider not only the needs of your space but the weather as well. It is no secret that it takes longer for oil based paint to dry. Choosing to use an oil based paint right before a stretch of humid weather or rain storm can lead to streaky finishes and uneven results. Monitoring the weather is key to getting great results for your painting projects.
