It's All About the Prep Work
Exterior Painting Tips
Do you know the key to a beautiful and lasting exterior paint job? Most people (and too many painting contractors) think it all depends on the quality of the materials that are used. Don't get us wrong, quality paint and equipment are absolutely vital to a good paint finish, and at San Jose Painting we only use the best. But the real key to lasting results is the work done before a single drop of paint is applied; the prep work.
All the best materials in the world will not deliver an enduring, beautiful result without a skilled and thorough surface preparation. This work involves pressure washing, scraping, stripping, sanding and more and is the "hard part" of providing quality exterior painting services. In fact, we've found that this prep work can represent up to 50%+ of a project's time.
And because this work is so time consuming it's also where most painting companies look to cut corners. Remember, this is pure time spent on labor, which provides further incentive for a company to reduce it's time investment; raising their bottom line and, perhaps, passing along some "savings" to you.
Well, actually, you're not saving at all. In fact, you'll probably end up spending more money when you have to hire an exterior painting company again in 3 or 4 years. A paint job that's done on a surface that's been thoroughly prepared can last you 10 years or more, and that's when you truly save money.
At San Jose Painting, that's the approach we take and the commitment that we have to lasting results. We want you to enjoy the peace of mind and satisfaction of knowing that your home is protected and will look great for many years after we've left.
