Sunstone Exterior House Painting

Jan 2014

Ever Wondered How to Paint Your House? It can be a bit overwhelming, especially when it comes to painting your home's exterior. This project showcases some of the fine details that can make the painting process easier from the start. In fact, the start of the house painting process is where most of the magic happens. If the first few steps are done right, most of the big stuff practically falls into place. First off, we always use top quality caulking. There is a huge difference between top shelf brands and bargain basement brands. Don't skimp on the caulking. This can be used to fill any areas that are not smooth or need to be built up but most importantly; caulking is used in potential problem areas where water infiltration may be a concern. We use caulking at every joint in siding, along edges, and at corners. The next step may be the most time intensive part. Its often neglected but perhaps the most important of these house painting tips. Proper masking is essential for any house painting job but what does masking entail? Masking is the taping and covering of all windows, doors, and other edge areas that you do not wish to cover in paint. Attention to detail is your friend when masking. Don't be afraid to redo it several times especially when first starting. It takes practice to get your lines right but the straighter and more accurate the masking, the better the painting is going to look. You can see in some of these photos what your masking lines around your windows and doors should look like. It takes time and patience to get it done right! A good ground cover begins with proper masking right up to the edge of the house. Don't forget to mask all around the edges of your deck and the entire base of your home! Now cover everything with tarps. This is includes your deck, shrubbery and gardens, concrete, fences, and anything else you don't want to get sprayed. Finally, use an airless sprayer. This is an absolute must. If you've never seen an airless at work, it is truly a wonder to behold. I really can't imagine exterior house painting without one. Practice in some test areas and again, take your time when applying. Try smooth even coatings from side to side. If your masking is done right, this is the easy part, though it can get tricky if you have to mask and cover your roof to paint the upper reaches of your home. Speaking of masking, don't forget to wear a mask yourself! You could rent an airless sprayer for the weekend. Just be sure you do all of your masking ahead of time. This will take much longer than the actual spraying. If it sounds like too much work, just leave it to the pros at SFW painting! Give us a call and we'll take care of it.
