Exterior Preparation

The Paint Doctors will do a comprehensive assessment of the specified project and determine what will be required to achieve results that will bless you as our customer. It is important to start with a good foundation. As we stand on the ROCK we would like our action decisions to be on firm ground also so you can enjoy the appearance and benefits of a job well done for many years to come. We will take into consideration the best choice for cleaning, repairing, priming, and painting (whatever necessary steps may be required) to successfully complete the job. The weather, position of the project (sun or shade) and both exterior and interior influences will all be considered.

 

What goes into good preparation and how would we accomplish this?

 

 

  • A through cleaning of the exterior surface is required to start:
  • Power washing with a compressed water spray (note: this service is also available for sided homes and buildings that may just need to be “spruced-up”.
  • Mildew removal with a controlled bleach rinse followed by a power wash.
  • What types of repairs to the outside structure are offered?
  • Re-pointing of outside corners that have come apart.
  • Deck boards and railing replacement/repairs.
  • Window cleaning and screen replacement

 

 

Miscellaneous:   just ask!

How do we make the old paint look new?

The Word of God tells us we cannot put new wine into old bottles so He makes the changes; we also have to make changes by getting rid of the old to put on the new. We will need to assess what method will be required to remove or repair the old paint surface; our decision will depend on the type of paint on the house and the condition of that paint.

 

Our options are:

 

 

  • Grinding the old paint to the original surface.
  • Hand sanding.
  • Mechanical sanding.
  • Total paint removal to the original surface by use of heat gun.
  • and then we start…….
  • Wash and clean the structure
  • Make necessary repairs
  • class="MsoNormal">Repair the old and worn paint as mentioned above; smooth sand the affected areas
  • Wipe clean.
  • Prime (alkyd or latex depending on the surface).
  • Re-paint by spraying, brushing, or rolling.
  • Touch-ups and finishing touches

 

and then…….see you smile!

Interior Preparation

Interior preparation differs from the exterior approach as they are 2 entirely different environments. We take into consideration what you would like to have done in each individual room as each room has its own distinct personality. Kitchens, bathrooms, basements, living rooms will all differ as will ceilings, walls, and floors. We can advise and help on colors, appearances, and what will flow if necessary but love it when you have an idea as to how you would like it to look when we are finished.

Our process starts once again with organizing, cleaning, and prepping the room for painting.

 

  • Clear the room or organize space to access all areas that will be worked on.
  • Clean and wipe down walls, ceilings, or areas that will be prepped.
  • Thoroughly cover floors, furniture, and all items that need to be protected from “accidental” painting.
  • Remove any grease or contaminants from the surfaces that are being primed and painted.
