Poor Preparation

The most important thing besides getting the right exterior paint is preparing the home for painting. You can’t be lazy! Ask anyone and they will tell you that preparation contributes to atleast 80% towards the total result.

You have to take the effort to get rid of all the paint chips and flakes by going over every area meticulously. Once all the loose paint is removed, it is important to smooth the edges of the remaining paint by sanding it. The new paint will flow evenly across the surface if sanding is done well.

Ensure that dirt, dust and debris are removed before you begin painting. Remember never to paint over wet wood.

Prime the Wood

Any bare wood that is found must be sealed and primed for painting. If the wood has never been painted before, or is weathered wood or is wood that has been stripped of paint, you will need to apply a primer unless you want the paint being soaked up like a sponge by the wood.

Painting at the Right Time

You want your paint to last for years to come, isn’t it? You will need to choose the time of painting carefully. Don’t start your painting work if the weather is cloudy with the possibility of rains. Don’t even start painting immediately after rains when the surface is still damp. Avoid painting when it is too hot or too cold.

Be Sure to Use the Right Paint
