There’s a lot more than slapping paint on a wall that goes into painting your exterior. Depending on the painter, you’ll have varying final results depending on what kind of preparations they make for your project.

Procoat crews take a very detailed and conscientious approach to prep, as it sets the foundation for the quality of the paint job.


A clean surface is best when applying a fresh coat of paint. Pressure washing before painting is a must if you want your paint job to last as long as possible. Dirt, mold, or chipping paint makes it difficult for new paint to adhere properly.


Scraping paint that is peeling or flaking is really important. Similar to pressure washing, scraping assures that your paint will adhere properly and not start peeling too soon.


Sanding is yet another way to fully prepare the surface for painting. Once flakes of paint are scraped off, sanding gives your walls a surface that is as smooth as can be so that there will be no bumps or wrinkles in the finished product.


In order to avoid splatters on windows, gutters, and any other surface you’re not painting, use plastic or paper to cover these. It can be tedious, but so worth it when you don’t have to do unnecessary clean up.


When necessary, especially during color changes, using primer is a good way to make sure the surface is totally ready for your fresh coat of paint. When it’s a color change, using primer helps neutralize the color so that the old color doesn’t show through as an undertone.
