Would you like to know how they do it?
Getting the House Ready
Before a house can be painted, it needs to be cleaned. This is done by pressure washing with an environmentally-friendly cleaning solution. They use a Honda 6X200, 3200 PSI pressure washer for this. Two or three days later, the house will be good and dry enough for the old paint to be scraped off. During this waiting period, the painters take the opportunity to check and fix the caulking and mask off anything they don’t want paint to get on. Once the house is dry enough, the old paint gets scraped off, the wood gets sanded evenly and a primer is put down. This primer coat will add some adhesion so the paint sticks to the walls and looks great for years to come.
The Painting Itself
When the actual painting itself starts, the Valley Painting Pros make sure to back brush every bit of the vertical siding. Sherwin-Williams and Rodda are their preferred paint brands. They take care to lay down a clean, even coat. They will put down as many coats as you like. Good communication with the customer is the key to good business, after all. Once that’s done and the masking is removed, it’s time to paint the trim and accent colors. The Valley Painting Pros are meticulous enough to stick around and do some needed touch up work. And of course you can count on them to clean up after themselves! When the job is done, you’ll think the house always looked that nice. And it will for quite some time! Valley Painting Pros offers a two-year warranty on all their jobs and their product come with a twenty-five-year warranty.
Is a professional house painter really necessary?
It’s a case of you get what you pay for. Learning how to paint a house and do it correctly is not something that can be done in a day. A professional knows just the right way to do this and will have all the proper tools. For best results, it is best to hire a professional to paint your house.
How should I prepare my house to be painted?
Get everything clean and dry. Get rid of as much mold and dirt as you can. If you have any plants, put something over them to protect them or better yet, move them away entirely if possible. Please keep all pets and children out of the painters’ way.
How much is this going to cost?
This is something that varies from one job to another. Fortunately, Valley Painting Pros does free estimates. It all depends on the measurements and individual requirements. Interior and exterior jobs will have different pricing as well.
How long will this take?
Again, this varies. For the average house, using a team of three painters, the job can take up to four days to be completed. Of course, larger buildings are going to take a little longer.
How do I match my present paint color?
You can scrape a bit of the old paint off and take it to the paint store to be analyzed. Many paint stores have swatches to choose from. You can bring a handful home and make your decision, or you can take a photo using your cell phone and take it to the store to get a matching color.
Getting a house painted can be quite the ordeal! If you get one of the trained professionals from Valley Painting Pros, you are sure to love the results!
