Exterior Painting in Sunny Isles: What Do We Do Differently?
4 Keys To A Successful Painting Job
#1 Proper Powerwashing
Few things can cause more damage than improper pressure washing.
When power washing or pressure washing the exterior of your home, we let the chemicals do the work, not high pressure.
We use the least amount of chemicals that kill mildew and eliminate dirt and pollen collected in the home.
Our cleaning products will not harm your plants or flowers!
FYI – We insist that the chemical stay on for 15 minutes. That’s the amount of time necessary to kill the mold spores.
If not, the mildew will grow back much faster.

#2. The Moisture Meter
It is impossible to feel the wood and know if the moisture content is low enough to paint. And believe it or not, most painters do not own a moisture meter.
Why this isn’t as important as a paint can opener is beyond me.
FYI – The most likely cause of paint peeling is water.
Almost all paint requires the moisture content to be below 16%.

#3. Exterior Painting in Sunny Isles:
One or Two Coats?
Besides applying two coats satisfies the warranty, it also extends the paint job’s life for years.
For example, the picture on the right clearly shows where someone brushed the edges and seams and then painted the exterior wall with a roller.
The areas that received two coats have significantly more paint left.
Applying a second coat of paint usually adds about 30-35% to the total cost of the job. Considering it can extend the paint job’s life by five years, it is a wise investment.
#4. Proper Weather Conditions
Late Fall through mid-Spring is certainly the best time for exterior painting. Regardless, we are always keeping track of the weather in Sunny Isles.
Also, if it rains shortly after painting, the rain can seep through the paint, causing bubbles.
Therefore it is best not to paint when the chance of rain is above 30-40% for the next 24 hours. Check out Sunny Isles 10 Day Weather Forecast
