Interior exterior painting – Your one stop solution - SPPI

You are absolutely correct if you think a fresh new coat of paint would enhance the overall exterior of your house. Not only the appearance and value of your house will improve but it several advantages to the long lasting quality of it.


Excellent quality paint can protect your home against all sorts of damages caused by natural factors like harmful sun-rays, moisture, pests and many more, however, just one or two coats of paint is not enough for long lasting quality and protection. The blend of right preparation, high quality materials and great workmanship are required for an “as expected” decent paint job.


Let us tip you some solutions to the most common problems faced by all of us when it comes to painting exteriors.


Peeling: The most common reason behind peeling of paint from your walls is the multiple layers of many coats of old paint. Many other factors that cause peeling are moisture and a poorly prepared surface of chalky, dirty, greasy or slick. Well prepared paint job can prevent peeling for several years to come. The already peeling exterior paint can be removed many methods such as by scraping, sanding, power washing, heat gun and using a torch which should only be performed by a painting professional as fire hazards are involved in the torching process.


After you have completely removed the peeling paint, a superior quality exterior grade vinyl spackling should be used to repair bare wood and voids. Because of shrinking you may have to add more than one coat. Most importantly, to prevent your next coat of paint from peeling in the future all spots & patches should be primed with a good oil-base primer-sealer.


Blistering: Blistering usually happens because of the moisture problem. It actually forms when water vapors attempting to escape in the atmosphere are trapped by the paint. To prevent it, you should always let new lumber fully dry before painting. Other causes of blistering are excessive heat if you are painting in hot weather, thinned paints and poor preparation of surfaces to be painted. You should always have a vapor barrier below the siding to help prevent moisture-related blistering. Also, interior moisture control and insulation at exterior walls can assist in blistering prevention.
