Drop cloths are used throughout the job to protect the landscape from debris and to collect all paint chips
Protect roof and non-painted areas from paint drops and paint chips.
Preparation of the surface – This is a critical element of any painting project. Surface preparation consists of :
1) inspecting the property in detail,
2) identifying signs of chalking, peeling, or blistering on the paint, as well as noting any water damage, and
3) proceeding with repairs
Pressure Washing – A power wash eliminates algae, mildew, dirt, mould, and chalking that accumulates over the years and restores a clean surface for the paint to adhere to the home.
Scraping – The next step, which is typically completed in a period ranging from a few hours to a couple of days, involves scraping loose paint and/or stain that is peeling off the surface.
Sanding – Amazing Painting then prepares for the siding’s priming by smoothing out the paint’s borders. Scraped areas can be hand sanded, and/or power sanded upon request when contracted.
Light carpentry such as, clapboard, fascia, and sill replacement can be performed when contracted.
Chemical stripping of wood as needed to remove excess paint buildup, or failing paint (we are also experienced in dealing with lead paint)
Priming – Prior to applying the top coat, Amazing Painting sprays, rolls or brushes a high-end primer to the wood, metal, steel, aluminium or other surface. Priming ensures that the paint will adhere to the areas in need of being re-touched. Priming is done to all bare wood areas to increase adhesion
Special priming is also done to certain problematic areas with cedar bleed or rust.
Caulking is then applied to potential areas of water leaks, around windows, between joints, among other places. Amazing Painting also proceed to mask any nooks and crannies that they wish to protect from paint. All joints receive siliconised caulking to prevent moisture from penetrating behind wood.
Paint is applied with brush and/or roller or sprayed and then back-brushed after all prep work is completed; we use sprayers on shutters, lattice and some hard-to-reach areas.
