As your exterior painter in Raleigh, NC, we emphasize at each initial appointment that your new exterior paint coating is never better than what you are painting over. Meaning, correct preparations play an important role in how long your exterior paint job will last. Of course, the more preparations it takes to achieve a paintable surface, the more costly the project. However, simply painting over damaged exterior surfaces without the necessary caulking, puttying, scrapping and other preparations will not last. So, don’t allow your home to go without quality exterior painting too long!
Proper maintenance will improve both curb appeal and the overall value of the home. If you wish to properly maintain a home, exterior painting must be done! Sadly, painting is something that is not typically well maintained and simply overlooked. Not properly maintaining exterior painting conditions will eventually result in costly repairs. The costs could potentially exceed the exterior painting project itself. It is especially important to maintain your exterior paint coating if you already have problematic siding or trim. On average, houses are only re-painted three to four times in their total life span. Most people feel that they are saving money while waiting the few extra years to paint the exterior. But In reality, long term it could potentially cost more!
Should I spray or brush?
There are many advantages and disadvantages to both spraying and brushing. Spraying allows a more uniform topcoat. Spraying also enables you to change colors easily. On the other hand, brushing in certain applications can be slightly more durable, but often shows unsightly lap marks while using satin finishes. When asked which one is better, there’s really no simple answer. Each exterior painting estimate is assessed according to your home's condition. Our Raleigh exterior painting professionals consider application options that are specific to your home. Our professional opinion is based on establishing the best possible results suitable to your home.

With a signed contract, our Raleigh exterior painting experts will schedule a free color consultation. We will help you find the color that best fits your home’s exterior. We suggest that you use our color visualizer tool located in the upper right hand corner of each page. The Color visualizer has exterior color samples from both Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams. As you are considering colors, it is important to understand that there is always a slight variation between an ink swatch and an actual paint color. It is always beneficial to get color samples and apply them to multiple areas during this process. Remember to look at all samples in natural sunlight. Unnatural light can give off the wrong undertone of the color.

All block, brick and stucco surfaces should be painted with products the will allow moisture to transfer.
Using better products, means less frequent repaints, resulting in saving you money over time.
Garage doors, gutters and down spouts should not be painted, unless they have been painted already, or are beginning to oxidize.
When you touch your home and get a chalky residue on your fingers, this is a huge indicator that it’s time to paint.
