Our Exterior House Painting Process
Upon accepting a quote from our painting company you will have the option of using one of our designers for a free color consultation. Picking the right color to fit other features of your home can be a tricky process. Our designer brings a full catalog of colors for you to pick from along with their experience of what color combinations work the best. After a color has been chosen, we place you in our scheduling system which allows you to log-in and view the expected start date of your exterior painting project.
- Typically, we start by pressure washing the exterior of your home. We then wait a couple days for it to dry before doing additional preparation like caulking, scraping, sanding, etc. After all the prep work has been completed we protect your windows, doors, light fixtures, etc. with plastic and tape. Decks and ground level surfaces get covered with drop clothes.
- Paint application is now ready! Our Minneapolis exterior painters start applying the paint with a sprayer to completely saturate the surface. For especially porous substrates such as cedar, surfaces get back rolled and brushed so the paint gets pushed into the wood fibers. Windows, trim and sometimes doors are painted by hand after the siding is completed. If you so choose, we can apply the paint without the use of spraying equipment.
- After each day, we pick up after ourselves and clean up. Upon completion of the project we walk around the outside to check for touch-ups and ensure you are satisfied.
