Exterior Painting in Oklahoma City: What Do We Do Differently?

Allowing the cleaning solution to sit for 15 minutes is necessary to kill mold spores.

If not killed, mold spores will eventually grow through painted surfaces.

 Proper Power Washing 

When power washing or pressure washing your exterior, 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 fifteen minutes. 


Fifteen minutes is the amount of time necessary to kill the mold spores, or they will grow through the paint.

exterior painters in Katy TX should test the moisture content of wood before painting

A Key Difference:

The Moisture Meter

It is impossible to feel the wood and know if the moisture content is low enough to paint.  Believe it or not, most painters do not own a moisture meter. 

Before a single can of paint is open, we check the moisture content of the wood and mark areas that are not ready for painting.

FYI – The most likely cause of paint peeling is water.

Almost all paint requires the moisture content to be below 16%.

Proper Prep Work Makes All The Difference

A Key Difference:

Choosing the Right Primer

There is a reason why Sherwin Williams and other paint manufacturers have a wide variety of primers.  Different surfaces call for different primers.   

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 of Oklahoma City, it is important to have all three surfaces expanding and contracting at the same rate.

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

Are Two Coats Necessary?


Exterior painting in Oklahoma is more than a nice-looking finish.  It’s protection for your most valuable possession.  

Applying two coats satisfies the warranty and improves the surface appearance and extends the paint job’s life for several years.

To demonstrate the difference, consider a scenario on the right.  One coat is applied to the exterior walls using a roller, but the edges and seams have been brushed.

Noticeably, the areas that received two coats have significantly more paint remaining. While adding a second coat may increase the overall job cost by roughly 30-35%, it can prove a wise investment, yielding lasting results for up to five years.

Protect your property’s appearance and value with quality exterior painting services today.
