  • Power washing the house is is a process usually done in the beginning prep-stage when painting a house. I say it that way because if there is wood replacement, I would prefer to replace wood first before powerwashing. It is usually included in a paint estimate. Using a cleaner to bleach the dirty siding and trim on the extiror will help the washer to rinse and ready for primer and paint.

 

STEP 2

Caulking and rotten wood removal is very important after the cleaning phase. Primer where the new raw wood is located because it acts as a bonding agent for the paint. Caulking as needed around the windows and door jambs- You do this before painting and caulk has the best chance’s of having less shrinkage over time. -It should like like strips that are not too thick but just thick enough and the painter should of pushed in the caulking between joints with fingers to create a smooth finish. Caulking over nail holes as well. -I would only replace rotten wood areas with a simular looking concrete composite siding. It is always best to replace rotten wood with PVC or a hardi plank concrete siding.

 

STEP 3

At this point, the house is prepared for paint. I like to use a combination of a brush and sprayer depending on the size and scope of work. The paint should be applied in a nice uniform even coat. The coating should protect the house until the next time you need to paint. I always say that preperation is more important than the actual paint your coating with. Bad prepperation leads to a bad paint job.
