CertaPro Painters® of Silicon Valley, CA for Professional Vinyl and Aluminum Siding Painting
When you choose aluminum siding, it’s a commitment that should last a couple of decades. What happens if your color choice fades or you need an update? Paint it! Did you know aluminum and vinyl siding can be painted to update the color and prolong its life on your home? Extending the life of your siding can save you time and cost even if temporarily. While it’s not a complete replacement of the siding, it is not a task that most homeowners are comfortable taking on. Bringing in a professional like those at CertaPro Painters® of Silicon Valley, CA allows your home to look great while protecting it for years to come. Learn more about siding painting.
To create a beautiful finish on your siding, proper preparation and coatings are important. Learn more about painting siding. CertaPro Painters always follows the proper steps to applying a new coat of paint including:
1 Power Wash
To complete a successful siding painting, washing the vinyl or aluminum is the first step. This clears away dirt, mold or debris, leaving a pristine area to paint. When working with aluminum, residual chalkiness, is normal.
The CertaPro Painting team takes care covering your items and taping off areas for painting. This avoids overspray on the ground or surrounding areas.
After preparation is complete, our crew applies premium paint to the exterior for a uniform finish.
At the completion of daily work, the team will clean up the area and put away tools. Once the job is completed, a thorough cleaning ensures paint chips and materials are stored away for you.
Before our crew leaves, you will be invited to do a walk through of the area. This ensures you are happy with your completed work.
Handyman Services for Siding
Often times our painters find failures within the siding on homes in our area. While it might not warrant a full siding replacement, repairs are necessary. With our handyman services, you can have your siding restored to pristine condition prior to painting.
Tongue and Groove Horizontal Siding
This is the most common cause of failure and damage that we see in this area. This type of siding is designed to expand and contract with the heat and moisture. When these horizontal surfaces are caulked in, they give the appearance of a water tight home. The horizontal boards will swell with moisture and contract with heat and break the caulking. This movement will tear the paint away from the edges and the broken caulking creates a ‘dam’. Water then gets behind the old paint and siding. This is the cause of peeling paint and a continuous maintenance problem.
Unless the caulking is removed or the siding replaced this issue will be the source of failing and peeling paint. We will return to do maintenance work on these areas at a discounted time and materials rate during the warranty period of our contract.
