While a challenging project requires more time and effort than an easy one, it can also be much more rewarding. When we painted the exterior of this condo in Katonah, we definitely had this experience. The painting process required many steps of surface repair and preparation, but the transformation was worth the effort!
Exterior Painting Process
When we paint the exterior of a home for our clients in New York and Connecticut, we always start by making sure the surfaces are clean. In this case, the paint on the wood siding and deck was failing significantly, so we needed to make sure all peeling, cracking and chipping paint was removed.
Before we begin applying any new products, we carefully inspect for wood rot. Here in New York, the changing seasons are hard on exterior wood, and we most often find rot affecting window frames and decks. This condo had experienced damage to window frames and siding, so we replaced all of the rotted wood.
Once the surfaces are all clean and sound, we apply primer to any bare wood, providing a good bond for the top coat to cling to. Primer is a key step for weatherproofing wood, and it extends the life of an exterior paint job. On this condo, we primed all of the areas where we replaced wood, as well as the areas where the previous paint had peeled off.
The last step is always the most fun: applying the top coat! With all of the preparation complete, we applied premium exterior house paint, and the results were worth the effort! This Katonah has restored beauty and protection from the weather for years to come.
