Few home-maintenance projects are as important as Exterior painting is an extremely important home maintenance project as good quality paint is the first line of defence against the elements. In addition a good paint job will enhance the aesthetic appeal and resale value of your home.

As soon as you notice paint starting to crack, blister or peel it is imperative to have this remedied. Firstly the exterior must be cleaned of all dirt, grime and residue with a power washer or stiff-bristle brush and then any holes and cracks must be filled with exterior-grade filler which is sanded off once fully dried. You can paint directly over an exterior surface provided it is in good condition butl all wood must be primed before being painted.

The most effective method of applying exterior paint is with a paintbrush for narrow surfaces and edges and a roller on the larger surfaces. Don’t forget to paint in the shade if possible as paint that dries too quickly will not always stick as well and can flake and also begin your painting near the top of the house and work your way down.
