Professional Painting in Damascus – Trusted Experts

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.

The Basics of House Painting

need house painted How to: Estimating Painting Jobs is the most asked question and the most often viewed articles that I write.Painters have been around for a long time, so paint estimating is not "rocket surgery". I can give you a starting point based on my job costs; ultimately you need to create a job cost history of your own.To estimate painting an interior room, I measure this room, say 12Lx16Wx8H, and unless I have a lot of open space, I don't deduct for doors or windows, normally. I take two widths (24) PLUS 2 lengths (32) TIMES the height (8), or 448. 4.48 (because in construction we count in "hundreds" so 448 = 4.48 hundreds, right?) x.667 x $25 = $74.70 to roll one coat of latex paint on a smooth wall. Not counting paint. So, let's say I estimate painting one hundred square feet of smooth wall surface at the rate of.667 hours. In other words if I charge $25/hour (I would probably say to go to work at the post office instead), because you are not making $25 after expenses, but let's pursue this. One hundred square feet of wall in a re-paint, not new construction, because painting new construction is a much lower rate per square foot because a painter can go much faster. Why? Setting up, protection, preparation and cleanup are almost zero. So when you painters talk to each other, make sure that you are talking apples to apples.Anyway, so my rate is $16.67 to paint 100 square feet of wall in a lived in home not new construction. So point one, is that our estimate?Where do we estimate prep, cleanup, replacing plate covers, traveling to buy paint, break time (nobody works 8 hours in an 8 hour day unless you are superman), cleanup, dealing with the customer.Point two in paint estimating.Why this is only a starting point is that:1) You may go faster or slower than me so you have to time yourself and /or your crew. And then use your job times not mine. Each house may have different rates. Your crew is faster or slower. 2) What if it takes you 3 hours to drive to the job? This list could go on forever, but we need guide lines.Keep track of how long it takes your crew to do a room.Start your painting estimate with YOUR historical time to paint a room or door or window. And then look at it individually, for example, do you have to stop working and leave the house when the mother takes the kids to school? Do you have to clean up each night?How much spackle? How much prep? Clean up?Your competition is not other painters your competition is yourself.
