Problem Solving

Preparation is key

  • When decorating exteriors it is important to plan the project to ensure that you achieve the best results.
  • It is important to understand that paint will only perform well with the correct surface preparation.
  • Using the correct preparation products and application tools can make the job easier and result in a longer lasting, more aesthetic finish.
  • Understand why do we paint exterior masonry. Two key motivations are protection and decoration.
  • Protection is achieved by the paint creating a barrier against not only moisture and wind but also the adverse effects of UV rays from the sun that damage exterior surfaces.
