Peeling Paint

The key to a  long lasting exterior paint job is careful examination of all the surfaces. We carefully assess whether the paint failure is caused by moisture infiltration, poor building materials or the surface having been painted numerous times causing an excessive buildup of paint.

Preparation in most cases includes washing and mildew removal, scraping and sanding all loose and flaking paint.

In the case of severely degraded paint complete removal of the existing paint is the only way to insure a long lasting job. We use a variety of methods including chemical strippers and vacuum  sanders in that process.

All prepared surfaces are primed with an oil based primer, sanded and caulked where necessary and than either one or two coats of an acrylic based finish paint are applied.

The protection of your property is also an integral part of the preparation process.
