Professional Painting in Wood Village – Trusted Experts
Below are five important things to consider before painting the exterior of your home yourself.
(1) Proper preparation of all surfaces to be painted is paramount. Improper preparation is the main cause of paint failure and/or reduced life of the finish. Surface preparation can take as little as a few hours, while some require days to complete properly. All this time and work and you have yet to open your first can of paint! For some, the time required and the knowledge needed for this step was all they had to hear before calling us in, but not for everyone. Others who completed projects on their own were happy with the outcome for the first few years or so after painting. It wasn't until the eventual premature failure coupled with the thought of how much time & money they had spent to repaint on their own that they eventually decided to leave it to the professionals the second time around.
(2) It's not that high... or is it. The height of your home can be a bit deceiving from the ground, and let's not forget about trying to safely place a ladder on a garage roof to paint the side of the second story. Proper equipment such as the correct ladders and ladder leveling tools required to safely perform the preparation and painting of high reach areas can be very costly. Aside from these costs, if you have a fear of heights, painting a two story home may not be the best choice you make.

House Painter Job Description
in this video by ABN Painting we are working on exterior a two-story stucco house and this is the look of the house before we started preparation work.
There's quite a bit of paint that is peeling especially around the trim a few holes in stucco.
On a back patio ceiling joint tape is missing, on the front patio ceiling there is a lot of peeling paint, metal side gate has a little bit of rust on the bottom.
We scraped any loose paint by hand and applied elastomeric patch to scraped areas to fix any hairline cracks.
To fix any larger cracks and in trim fascia we used latex caulk and after we squeezed it out of the tube using caulking gun we used the brush to spread it evenly throughout the trim.
We musked all windows using plastic and green tape.
Green tape gives approximately three days of clean removal.
If the tape is removed within three days from the windows it will not leave any residual glue.
Using green tape and 12-inch masking paper we masked off staircase and the wooden patio that will not be painted.
We masked off the unpainted block wall.
To protect the floor on the back patio we used paper around the perimeter and covered the middle witrh tarps.
After scraping loose paint near the foundation of the house we applied elastomeric patch.
The side of the house that belongs to the neighbor we covered with paper.
On the front of the house we covered with tarps all concrete surfaces.
To protect roof shingles from all spray we run a 12-inch masking paper next to the stucco and when we're ready to spray paint the second level we'll cover the rest of the shingles with tarps.
We fixed all holes in stucco using stucco mix.
On the front patio ceiling we scraped all loose paint.
Re-textured the ceiling using drywall mud and using latex caulk filled any gaps between the stucco and the drywall.
On the back patio ceiling after we applied joint tape we textured the ceiling as well.
We're sending both ceilings on the front as well as on the back before applying the primer.
To prime repaired areas on the ceilings we're using general-purpose primer ultra grip by Dunn Edwards.
It is of dark color for no specific purpose it is just leftovers from one of our previous jobs.
After we are done with priming we apply the first coat of paint of the body color.
Before spray-painting metal gate we're using an oil-based primer to cover the areas that are rusty.
After we are finished spray painting the body of the house we're using a mini roller and a brush to paint the trim fascia.
After were done with cleanup and touch-ups this is the look of the house.
