We talk quite a bit about the challenges that painting on exterior surfaces has. The type of paint that we are going to want to use is usually denser than the type of paint that we use for interiors. We may want to add more layers of paint. All of these things depend on the type of surface that we are painting and particularly what this surface is made out of. You can be sure though, that we are going to be able to find an effective way to provide a premium finish to virtually any surface that we paint that is located outdoors!
What Type of Exterior Surfaces Can We Paint
Most of the exterior surfaces that we are tasked with painting are homes or buildings. There is no real need to lie about that. We’ve also been called to paint monuments or certain types of decorations that sit outdoors. Things like fountains or other fixtures that you can have adorning a house or a building. As you can probably imagine painting each particular fixture comes with its own unique set of “rules”. One of the things that we’ve mentioned in other parts of the site is that we’ve painted virtually everything. So you can rest assured that you are not going to catch us off guard and we are going to find a way to help you out.
What Type of Paint Do We Need To Use
Yes, the paint that we use on exteriors is different than the one that we use on interiors. Many people want to be very specific about the amount of paint that is being used on each particular project. We would be more than happy to fill you on the type of paint and the amount of paint that we are going to be using. While showing you how that reflects on the budget for the project!
The Best Time Of The Year To Paint
We are usually going to want to paint when it’s not raining. So that rules out some of the days during the spring, but we don’t get too much rain around here anyway. If you want to know whether or not painting in the scorching heat is challenging the short answer is that it is! That is not going to be something though that is going to prompt us to cancel a service. It just comes with the territory of working in Northern Nevada high desert.
Brush, Paint Roller, Paint Sprayer Which Technique Works Best?
The particular painting technique that we are going to be using depends on the area that we are going to be painting. Say we are doing some fascia painting. Some people want to use the paint sprayer in those areas which are usually considered hard to reach. That is not usually our go to technique though. We may want to use a brush there. We do this because of the level of detail that you are going to be obtaining with a brush. We are not artists, but we do know how to get a better finish!
