Investing in a quality exterior paint job can mean the difference between painting every few years or a paint job that will far out last an inferior one.
The following points separate Carnival Custom Painting from our competitors and should be expected from a quality painting job:
Step 1 – Power Wash
All surfaces to be painted will be thoroughly pressure-washed and cleaned. This step helps new paint to adhere to the existing surface, and removes pollutants and dirt. Mildew will be treated and killed.
Step 2 – Protect Property
All areas around the home, including shrubs, landscaping, etc. will be protected from start to finish by drop cloths or poly plastic. Windows, brick and light fixtures will be masked off to prevent paint from damaging these areas.
Step 3 – Scraping & Priming
Loose paint will be scraped. Smoothing may be necessary for maintenance or cosmetic consideration. Primer will be applied to all bare wood and metal to assure proper adhesion of new paint. This step helps further peeling.
Step 4 – Caulking
Loose caulking will be removed and replaced. Open gaps will be filled with new caulking to prevent rain water from penetrating below the surface. Loose nail holes will be re-set and putty applied as necessary. Loose and/or missing window glazing will be replaced.
Step 5 – Application
Only quality materials will be used. Application will consist of either; (1) spraying, (2) brushing, (3) rolling, or (4) a combination, as agreed upon before starting the job.
Step 6 – Protocol
Work area will be kept neat and the job conducted in a professional manner by skilled crafts people who are polite, friendly and work efficiently. Excess paint will be removed from windows. Touch-up paint will be labeled and left for your future convenience.
