As you know, prep is one of the most important steps involved for receiving a quality painting job. The first step requires pressure washing with a mildewcide, such as Jomax mildew remover and bleach when mixed creates a chloride release to remove all the mildew from the surface area with very minimum pressure is the key to a clean start. Sanding the surface is the next step along with priming bare or chalking surfaces. Most contractors leave these steps out entirely on their quote. In regards to the siding swelling issues we see with older lap type siding, this type of siding requires an application method called “back brushing“ which allows for filling the bottom lips of the siding up with paint where the siding overlaps, creating a solid finish. This application method adds an additional day of labor and usually several additional gallons of paint due to filling up the cracks under the siding lips to obtain a solid finish. As with most re-painting jobs, the difference in price relates to the quality of prep, application method, and fine details, as determined or scoped by the contractor. The more details usually is a good indication of a quality job.
We suggest using a semi-gloss or low-gloss on the siding to help shed the water and mildew from collecting on the surface. The sheen will give additional years of protection from fading and chalking while allowing the finish to last up to the 5-7 year period. Finally let’s don’t forget the detail work, cleaning of the windows, screen replacements, and addressing the problem areas such as fascia boards, window sills and water related issues.. These are just a few examples which makes for money well spent when looking to hire a painting contractor.
