In that post we mention weighing a company’s experience, the attention to detail of their estimates as well as their online reviews in determining the best house painting company.
Now that you’ve done your homework and found the right paint company for your house painting project, there’s one important thing they need to do before doing ANY painting:
Surface preparation is the secret to any flawlessly painted house you’ve ever encountered. Surface preparation includes any of the following items to ensure that your paint project not only looks fantastic and is long-lasting, but also saves time throughout the project:
This list isn’t meant to be all-inclusive, but as you can tell, there’s a lot of work that goes into surface preparation.
The importance of surface preparation, we feel, can’t be overstated. Paint won’t stick to dusty, dirty surfaces and will eventually fall off if applied to old, peeling paint. If the time isn’t put into surface preparation, odds are you’ll be repainting more than you would normally need to if the surface was properly prepped.
Also, holes and rough areas will definitely stand out with a fresh coat of paint so taking the time to patch in these bits are important as well.
As with anything we do here at Texas Painting & Gutters, we take surface preparation to the next level. We stand by our work, 100% and we know and understand the value of a properly prepared surface for any house painting project.
That’s why our clients love us and you will too!
