With any paint job, the right preparation is more that half the work. The prep-aration techniques vary according to the surface to be painted. First replace or repair anything that is damaged. This applies to all surfaces, including wood, metal, masonry and stucco. Thoroughly clean and wash the surface to be painted. A garden hose can be used, but a pressure washer makes a cleaner surface. Al-low the surface to dry completely. Remove chipped, cracked or blistered paint with sandpaper or a scraper. Use a drop cloth to catch any loose pieces of paint. Patch nail, screw holes, cracks or gouges. Use caulking at seams, corners, on door and window trim and any-where the trim and siding meet. A good rule is to caulk anyplace one material meets a different kind of material. Use an epoxy filler to repair any major problems with wood. Use a stain blocking primer on dark stains. Areas with mildew can also be covered with a stain blocking primer. When using primer on mildew, there are primers with ad-ditives to treat mildew problems. Sand all glossy or smooth sur-faces so that the paint adheres properly. Remove any dust after the sanding has been completed. Cover light fixtures, electri-cal covers, and plumbing outlets. Remove window screens, as paint stains screens. Use a drop cloth to protect anything that you do not plan to paint. Apply a quality primer to un-painted surfaces. Be aware that there are different types of primers for different surfaces such as wood, metal, etc. Let the primer coat dry, then apply at least 2 coats of quality ex-terior paint Be sure that you fol-low all recommendations from the manufacturer. A brush should be used to paint all wood and a spray-er or roller for the rest. Kick back and enjoy the re-sults of your labor. By using qual-ity products, such as those found in the paint department in Big R, your exterior painting project will be a joy for all to see.Fort Lupton Trapper Days theme: Tips & Tricks For Exterior PaintingHometown Heroes
