Dave Rowe Painter & Decorator’s Exterior Painting Process

A lot more goes into an exterior painting job than just opening a can and slapping paint on the wall. In fact, a great paint job is all about preparation; the actual painting is generally the simple part.

Here’s a basic outline of the steps we take to make sure that your paint job is one we can both be proud of.

This is a general outline; your actual procedure may differ slightly depending on the situation or conditions.

Exterior Wash

The Team at Dave Rowe Painter & Decorator will begin by water blasting all the surfaces to be painted.  This removes any dirt, mildew, algae, and so on from the surfaces. We use a water / bleach solution that’s mild enough to prevent hurting your shrubs, plants or trees, but strong enough to kill any mould or mildew. For small areas, we hand wash the surfaces.

Prepare exterior surfaces

We will prepare the surfaces to be painted by priming any bare wood with a suitable exterior primer.

All holes and cracks will be filled prior to painting to prevent water getting in behind the paint causing it to flake or on wooden homes, causing the wood to rot.

We scrape and sand window sashes, and remove any loose putty. We will re-putty any areas where necessary.

If we identify any wood rot that wasn’t apparent during the initial inspection, we’ll show it to you and get your approval on a change order before performing any additional repairs. Minor repairs we’ll do ourselves; for major repairs, we may recommend bringing in a builder.

Exterior Painting

We then paint using your choice of exterior paint using the manufacturers approved exterior painting method. Upon completion of the project, we will clean the property; and make sure no scrapings or debris is left lying around the grounds.

Inspection

We consider this one of the most important parts of the job, we will inspect the job and make sure it is to the highest standard.
