Finding a reliable company for your exterior painting in Towson can be difficult.

Exterior Painting in Towson: What Do We Do Differently?

exterior painting in Towson starts with power washing

#1. Proper Power Washing Techniques

When power washing or pressure washing the exterior of your, we let the chemicals do the work, not high pressure.  We leave the high-pressure to Time Share salespeople.

We use the least amount of chemicals that kill mildew and get rid of dirt and pollen collected on 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%.

Exterior painting in Towson needs to start with a dry surface or the paint will peel as shown here.
Using self priming paint, or the wrong primer can lead to adhesion problems in just a few years.

#3. Choosing the Right Primer

There is no “one size fits all” for exterior primers.  Whether you are painting Georgia Pine or pine from Canada, it’s not all the same primer.   

What happens if you choose the wrong primer?  The paint will peel.  


Because the wood, primer, and top coat of paint are not expanding and contracting at the same rate.   

With the sharp changing seasons in Towson, it is important for all 3 surfaces to expand and contract at the same rate.

When choosing Klappenberger & Son, we can advise you on which primer will work best with your surface. 

#4. Exterior Painting in Towson: 

                 One Coat Or Two?


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 5 years, it is a wise investment.

The difference between one coat and two

               #5. Proper Weather Conditions for Exterior Painting in Towson

We are often asked what season is best for exterior painting.  It depends on the temperature.  Most manufactures like the temperature to be lower than 90 degrees and above the mid-’30s for at least 24 hours.  If paint freezes before it fully dries, then it can lose its ability to cure fully.  

Also, if it rains shortly after the surface is painted, 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.
