The exterior of your home or business is often the first impression a customer and guests will get about your company or home. It is not only important visually, but also very important structurally. A building is only as strong as its foundation. The same goes for the protection of the materials on the exterior of your building. We take great care in providing accurate estimates and identifying any concerns we have that may need to be addressed. We want our job to be done right the first time and last for many years to come. We will make sure you are aware of any repairs or board replacement and that may need to be done before painting.
A large majority of an exterior paint job is in the preparation. We take great care in making sure our detailed caulking, taping and cleaning is done correctly and thoroughly. Our crew also has the skills to make any necessary repairs or replacement of siding and boards around the building. Not only will your building look perfect and beautiful, but it will be structurally sound. From large businesses to homes, our crew will get the job done, and get it done right!
The Seba Exterior Painting Process
Wash: We begin by power washing your house or structure with a high pressure power washer. We also use a power washer if paint stripping is necessary.
Prep: Seba Painting and Construction will then wait one to two days for the house to dry depending on weather. We do all scraping and sanding of flaking, chipping, or peeling paint (on small areas) then prime all bare wood surfaces. Scraping and sanding an entire house will be an extra charge. Blistering siding will be brushed and back rolled at this time to help seal and hide for final coat appearance. Back rolling is not done at time of spray application to ensure proper texture of applied paint. Not all blistering will be completely concealed upon completion.
Seba Painting and Construction then caulks the entire house at this time. We use a 45-55 year caulk and seal all soffit vents, vinyl windows, re-caulk bronze windows if necessary, caulk the backs of highly visible lower fascia and soffit, and caulk all corner boards, door jambs, cracks and any other places to make the final paint job look clean and neat.
Paint: After the house has had the proper time to dry, we will begin painting your home. Seba Painting and Construction applies all paints according to manufacture specifications to insure proper warranty. Proper warranty includes applying the paint at a proper mil thickness wet or dry. Two coats will not add to or take away from the warranty. We apply all paint in a two coat process to thickness specifications. If necessary we add more coats for coverage or hiding at our discretion.
All trim, window trim, corner boards, side batting, fascia, and door jambs are brushed and rolled with two coats of paint. Gutters are primed and painted using an airless sprayer and fine finish tip. The body of your structure is painted using an airless sprayer and applying the paint at the proper thickness and overlapping by 50% one time to insure coverage and warranty. All primed and blistered areas are back rolled prior to spraying giving them 3 layers of paint.
Clean: Seba Painting and Construction will try to leave the job site cleaner then when we arrived. This includes picking up all trash, cleaning all walk ways, drive ways, porches, etc.
Touch up Kit: A touch up kit that includes a pint of each paint or product used is left in a labeled box for your convenience (when available). Each sample is labeled with the color name or number, type of product, sheen, and where it is located on the job.
Invoice: Upon completion, Seba Painting and Construction mails or emails an invoice the day the job is complete along with a customer suggestion form for your convenience and satisfaction. We encourage all customers to send the suggestion form in whether positive or negative to help improve customer service.
