The Process of Exterior House Painting on Residential Home in Richmond

Picking A Colour Scheme

Initially we arranged for the client to meet with us in order to select the paint colours that we would use for the exterior paint job. We then took him through a quality inspection of these paints and other materials once they arrived, ensuring that everything was correct before we started.

Home Building Safety Inspection

Safety is our top priority at Mcintosh Painters, so before we started painting, our team conducted thorough safety checks of the home and the products that we were using. This primarily included lead and asbestos testing, of which we would have taken the necessary steps to ensure their removal if found. During this inspection, we would also highlight any areas of the home that may need extra attention; to ensure the longevity of the exterior paint job.

Preparation Of Exterior Surfaces

Next, our team began by preparing the surfaces of the house exterior. In this particular case, our carpenter Elliot was called in to replace rotten and damaged timber. Once repairs are complete, our team then used our specialised power sanders. This ensures the wood is smooth and ready for us to paint on.

Applying The Undercoat

Once the exterior was sanded down, our next step was to apply the undercoat layers. For this, we used the Taubmans 3 in 1 undercoat, the most important product in exterior painting. This high-performance product is multi-purpose and primarily ensures smooth, glossy surfaces. In addition to this, we added a couple of coats of high gloss oil to the door frames and windows, giving it an even more glossy and professional look.

Adding The Paint

Once the undercoat had been applied, it was time to start painting using the chosen colour scheme. We applied a few coats, sanding in between and ensuring that the entire exterior paint job was uniform.

Applying The Final Products

Lastly, we applied two coats of Solagard Low Sheen on to weatherboards and to the exterior timber. This fantastic product prevents UV rays from damaging the exterior and causing fading or cracking of the surfaces. An essential step to bring the final look of the paint job together.
