Tips and Hints Exterior Prep

Taylor Painting & Capentry is a full service, licensed interior painting contractor and exterior painting contractor that provides individual and commercial painting, drywall repair, roof coatings, and more to people in Wayne, West Chester, Radnor, Bryn Mawr, and Wynnewood PA.

Quality exterior painting preparation
can add 50% to the life of your project.



Here’s what to do:

  • All surfaces should be thoroughly power washed or hand scrubbed after being treated for mildew.
  • Loose paint should be scrapped or totally removed by burning or chemicals.
  • Bare wood should be sanded to a sound surface and spot primed.
  • Glossy surfaces should be dulled by sanding or use of bonding primers for a good adhesion.
  • Gaps and cracks in between joints and other surfaces should be caulked to keep out moisture and provide a cleaner finished appearance.
  • Only the best materials should be used for both preparation and finishing to provide the longest lasting exterior paint job.
  • Work should be done thoroughly by a skilled professional if you are unsure of how to do the work yourself.
  • All areas not to be painted like shrubs, landscaping and sidewalks should be protected at all times.
