How To Prepare for Your Professional Exterior Paint Service

May 15, 2019

So, you’ve made the big decision to give your exterior a little refresh. This can be exciting and aspirational, but don’t be surprised if you’re caught by a little anxiety. But don’t worry, there are a few ways you can make the process easy and stress-free. It’s all in the preparation. First, make the detail decisions, and second, get ready for your team to start the process.

Choosing the right paint and colors for your home’s exterior

First of all, you should know you’re not alone. Exterior painting is not a regular task, so we know you may have some questions. That’s why we offer a free color consult, where we can help you decide on what you truly want that will last.

Once you’ve set up your scheduled painting service, contact our office to schedule your free color consult. In preparation, you can do some research on the brands of paint that you’re interested in. We will always have recommendations for you, but you may find some inspiration when checking out your options. Having trouble deciding on a color? We can help with that, too. You can check out our other blogs for current trends and fun ideas, or, of course, we can discuss at the consultation.

Prepping the house for your exterior painting service

There are three things you can do to make the process smooth for everyone:

  1. Remove all plants from the house. If you have any pots standing up against the house, move those to a safe space where they can still get all the sun they need. You can trust a painter to paint well. You can’t trust them to find good light for your plants!
  2. Clear any landscaping and/or decorations. Similar to plants, if you have any decorations or moveable landscaping, it’s advisable to move those things as well. This will help the process to move more quickly, as the painters can get their supplies in and out without disturbing your items.
  3. Take a lap around the house. You’ll want to make sure you keep an eye out for wood rot. Some rot is more obvious, but if you see something you’re not really sure about, just make a note and let us know. We’ll take the right steps to ensure a happy, healthy exterior before painting.

Sit Back and Relax
