To achieve the best possible results when painting any room in your home or office the preparation of the walls is the key. Walls should all be clean prior to the start of any painting project. It is also important to make sure the flaws are all corrected, holes filled, cracks fixed and the uneven areas sanded down. Now you are ready to start painting.
There are many paint options which already have a primer added to the paint itself, however there are still certain situations which are best served by having a base coat of primer applied prior to painting to achieve the professional quality you are looking for.
Just as you would with the interior of your home, you will want to ensure the exterior of your home has been properly prepared prior to applying the new coat of paint.
Depending on the type of material you home is made of you may need to have it power washed or sand blasted.
This method of cleaning and paint removal differs from pressure washing only in the use of fine grit particles instead of water. Sandblasting is an excellent way to prep your homes exterior for a fresh smooth coat of exterior paint for a crisper and cleaner looking finished product.
