No exterior paint job will give you a long-lasting coating if the prepping is not done properly. The exterior of the house required thorough power washing to remove and mildew, dirt, dust, etc. that may be on the surface. Any loose paint needs to be scraped and sanded prior to painting. After your have scraped and sanded, be sure to apply primer to any areas of bare wood for best results, patch holes, fill cracks around windows, doors, trim and remove old caulking and apply new as necessary. At this point you are ready to begin painting. You will need to pick a good week to start painting and let the fun begin.
