The surrounding area will be tented floor to ceiling with a plastic tent to reduce any airborne paint particles (overspray) from migrating to other areas of the house. The doors, draw front and cabinet box will be primed and sanded with an intermediate sandable primer to create a smooth clean surface to apply the topcoat. Once the primed surfaces are clean and ready for the finish coat the enamel will be applied in a uniform clean application. The area will be left to cure overnight. The following day the plastic, tape and protective paper will be removed. The cabinets doors and draw fronts will be left opened and undisturbed for another overnight cure phase to allow the paint additional time to harden. A walk through with the homeowner will then take place and after approval the kitchen will be turned over to the customer. Note: the finish should be allowed a full 30 days to completely cure.

Painting your exterior home is more than just changing the color of your home. Paint Suppliers have designed their paint coatings to protect exterior surfaces to withstand sun exposer and the freeze thaw effect that cause the paint to become brittle and breakdown. Given enough time, the brittle paint exposes your properties substrate to the elements and can cause greater damage then just paint replacement. Every successful paint application needs to consider that the wood siding and trim is inspected for rot and exposer. Every repaint should include the following steps.
Pressure Washing the Home
All surfaces should be CLEAN, DRY & DULL before for the repaint coat to adhere to the surface for a long duration of time. Pressure washing cleans away the dirt and pollution with a high level of water pressure and creates a foundation that is clean, dry and dull. The house should be allowed to dry before the paint is applied.
Wood, Composite and Cement Board
Siding and trim can and do rot or are worn out from the environment, rodent damage in some cases shorter life span then other surfaces.
Caulking and Sealing
Where two or more surfaces meet the gaps should be sealed with caulking sealant. A skilled painter will ensure that caulking covers the gaps enough that it shuts out moisture from the exterior elements. Not all sealant products are the same. Builder grade sealants are inexpensive for the builder and though these products seal trim and siding during the initial paint job they can cause erosion the wood trim and siding because they let water into the wood effecting warping and expansion of the wood pieces. If you spend the money to apply a superior paint to your home the caulking should match in quality and quantity of application.
