Exterior painting is something every home owner will have to do at some point during their time owning a home, but doing it correctly is the real challenge. Unlike interior painting, the job can’t just be completed over the weekend between you, your friends and $50 worth of supplies. There are several key considerations that need to be made before you embark on your exterior painting project.

Firstly, you definitely cannot just start applying paint to your siding and expect it to take properly.  The surface needs to be prepared and this involves scraping away any old paint and pressure washing the surface, then letting it dry. This can be a time consuming process, and one of the main reasons we recommend hiring a professional who can accomplish this labour intensive process well beforehand.

Secondly, you should plan out your exterior painting process extensively as something as simple as heavy precipitation or rainfall can delay your painting project and even cause further damage to your home’s exterior. Professional painting contractors have done these jobs tons of times and will be able to make the correct judgement call to avoid any weather issues.

Finally, the equipment, ladders and even safety equipment is quite expensive especially for a one time use. While the cost may be higher to hire a company, the cost is certainly higher in the long run if you waste time and money trying to do it yourself and fixing any possible errors. Not to mention the possibility of injury which is also minimized when a professional is hired.

In conclusion, however you decide to approach your exterior painting project, we recommend hiring a professional Edmonton painter that has positive reviews and can handle the job with the proper equipment. There are several professional organizations that you should verify they are a part of, and you will certainly have a positive experience.
