Hall's Quality Painting - Fernandina Beach, FL 10 Ways To Prepare Your Home For Exterior Painting This Fall

10 Ways to Prepare Your Home for Exterior Painting This Fall

If you would like to start an exterior painting project this fall, taking the proper steps to prepare is vital. This guide shows you everything you need to know to get started in the right direction.

1. Decide on a Color

Some people decide to paint their home but don’t know what color they should choose, and you don’t want to fall into that trap. Consider the colors that make sense for your tastes and style if you wish to move forward without stress.

2. Craft a Plan

Having a plan allows you to paint your home and achieve the best possible results. Consider how much time you will devote to the project each day and the side of the house on which you will start, and you will be on the right track.

3. Clean Your Siding

Using your garden hose, wash your siding down to remove dirt and other things that can impact the quality of your paint job. Once you have washed everything down, apply a cleaning solution to prevent mold from growing on your walls.

4. Remove Existing Paint

You can use a scraping tool or rent a machine to power wash the old paint from your walls. If you use a sander to do the job, ensure you wear a mask to prevent yourself from inhaling paint particles that could damage your health.

5. Caulk Your Doors and Windows

With your painting project right around the corner, now is a good time to caulk your doors and windows, but you must first remove the old caulk to get a proper seal on which you can depend.

6. Cover Your Bushes and Shrubs

If you have bushes or shrubs near where you will be painting, cover them with plastic to avoid getting them dirty. You can buy sheets of plastic at most hardware stores, or you can order some online if needed. Make sure you cover the top and sides of the bushes you wish to safeguard.

7. Protect Your Garden

Allowing paint to get onto your garden can kill your plants and taint your food. Avoid that threat by covering your garden before you start painting, and you will be glad you did.

8. Place a Tarp on the Ground

It’s critical you protect the grass around your home if you don’t want to encounter unneeded problems while painting your Fernandina Beach, FL, home. Standard tarps will do the trick and offer security to put your worries to rest.

9. Warn Your Friends and Family

To stop your friends and family from touching the wet paint, let them know about your project in advance.

10. Put Signs in Your Yard

If mail carriers or other service personnel might come onto your property, place signs around your yard warning them about the wet paint.

Hall's Painting completed the inside of our home last week. We could not be happier with the results. The work was professional. The company was very committed to customer service. Heather could not have been more willing to assure our satisfaction. Hadley was an exceptionally talented painter! Mindy was a very efficient office coordinator. Any issues/concerns that we had were resolved courteously, immediately and efficiently.It was a leap of faith, and one that we were thrilled to have taken, to have our home painted while we were not even living here yet! This business exemplifies integrity, honesty and trust. Therefore, we highly recommend them to anyone in need of quality painting. Our thanks to all of the staff at Hall's Quality Painting!read more

Knowing what I know now, HQP will be my only call. I tried other painting contractors and half didn't even bother to call back. Since HQP maintains an office, Heather will probably answer the phone and set something up. During the walk-through, Ben pointed out things other contractors had missed. When the crew arrived, they were very professional and courteous, plus being excellent painters. We're very pleased with the whole experience. Highly recommend.read more

We recently used Halls to do an entire interior repaint of our beach place. They were very professional, reliable and the quality of workmanship was excellent. As a family run business, Hall's offers a wonderful balance of personal, caring service along with an exceptional level of workmanship that one might expect from a larger contractor. Although we were out of town while the work was being done, we could count on the crew to be respectful of our property and belongings. Their communication was excellent and they stand behind their work.read more
