At Aldo Roof Cleaning And Painting we feel exterior paint is the most important home maintenance project that can be done. Often the paint and caulking is all that is shielding weather and water damage to your home.
What if your exterior paint job could last longer? We have found after 40 years in business that prep work is the most important part of any paint job. Exterior house paint must stand up to the most extreme conditions. Plus all buildings, including your home, are constantly moving around and breathing.
This happens as the temperatures rises (expansion) and falls (contraction). Adding to the fact that wood is constantly moving, splitting and warping. Don’t forget about wind, dust, rain, and Florida’s hot temperatures. The best results will need a good method encompassing all aspects of exterior painting.
We top quality painting products, knowledge and practical experience resulting in lower maintenance and less repairs in the future. Increasing the value of your home is a win win situation. Taking the time now and doing things right will add years to the life of your homes exterior paint job.
After the preparation is done, you will need to choose the best exterior paint and application methods for your particular project.
Each house is different to some degree and requires its own decisions. The most common exterior painting methods are brushing and rolling or spraying. Both work extremely well and are suitable for most surfaces. For low homes, like single level ranch style, brushing and rolling can often be the best choice. Using an airless paint sprayer can speed up the finish painting, but will require more skill and experience. The method you choose will depend on the type of paint chosen and the construction of your home.
Often every home requires a combination of both methods in order to achieve the best results. No matter which method is chosen our professional grade tools will give you the best results. Every different type of surface on your home can require a different exterior painting technique. Depending on the weather conditions and the amount of moisture your house gets, you may notice cracked or damaged stucco. In that case we may recommend waterproofing your stucco as part of your exterior paint job.
