Power Washing for Exterior Painting
Exterior painting from CertaPro Painters of Andover usually follows a five-step process: washing, surface preparation, painting, cleaning, and inspection. The first step, washing, is the foundation of the entire project to remove mold, oil, and old paint so new paint absorbs into your surface better.
1 Power Wash
Necessary areas of your home’s exterior will be power washed or hand washed to remove dirt, debris and mildew.
Loose paint is scraped, glossy areas are scuff sanded and any gaps are caulked to prevent water intrusion.
Your repaired areas are primed before premium-quality paint is applied to your home’s exterior, for a uniform finish.
At the end of each day, the painting crew cleans up around your home, ensuring any paint chips are removed and all materials are stored away.
After our own inspection, your job site supervisor will walk you through the space, giving you the opportunity to review our work and to provide any initial feedback.
Common Questions About Power Washing Services
How often should you power wash your house?
A regular maintenance schedule can avoid expensive and unexpected repairs down the line. Power washing should be a part of that plan. It is recommended that homeowners power wash their exterior every 6 to 12 months, or when there is visible dirt.
Can CertaPro Painters® help with power washing of other surfaces like driveways or decks?
Our painters will provide power washing as part of an exterior painting project. If you would like to include areas like the driveway, fence, deck, bricks or others, talk to your estimator about add on services.
Can power washing cause damage?
We always recommend power washing be completed by a professional. If too much force is used, surfaces on your home and property can be irreversibly damaged. It’s best to allow our team to pressure wash surfaces for your project.
