This was preparing some brick for paint a few days ago on a townhouse in Hoover, AL. I think most people don’t realize how filthy and blackened and weathered their house is – brick, siding, and even driveway concrete. Pressure washing, or power washing as some may refer to it, is an absolutely necessary first step to a long lasting paint job. Generally takes between 4-8 hours per house. A paint-prep pressure wash is very different from a pressure wash you would get from a pressure wash-only service – we are not just cleaning the house, we are prepping for paint, so we get a lot closer to the surface to try and remove anything loose – loose paint, loose dirt – so that the paint adheres directly to what matters. Painting is easy – it’s the preparation that’s most important. And yes, we can paint if it’s over 35 degrees – no need to wait till summer! We’d much rather do your exterior work in winter/spring.

Most people don’t know you can still have exterior paint work done even in cold weather – all the way down to 35 F, actually, for most latex paints, or around 60 F for oil-based varnishes. I had to work around the weather somewhat, but Rome wasn’t built in a day. Master works take time – case in point, this freshly stained and varnished door in Crestline. On the left – well, life happens, sometimes things get neglected. On the right – meticulously detailed gorgeousness. A good sanding, a bit of ebony stain and 3 coats of Old Masters’ spar marine varnish and this front door is good for years to come. We only use the best. We recommend a fresh coat of varnish every 2-3 years to maintain UV protection. Painters in Birmingham. Loving care. Attention to detail. 13 years of experience. Small owner-operated company.
