Exterior Painting Services

When the paint on your home’s exterior starts to fade, or when the color starts chipping away, your home can go from a beautiful haven to an eyesore within a matter of months. Austin Painting and Cabinets provides quality exterior painting services designed to improve your home’s curb appeal and keep it looking fresh for years to come. 

Exterior Painting is For the Professionals

Plenty of comedy films have shone a light on the things that can go wrong when homeowners attempt to paint their homes’ exteriors on their own. From the potential for serious injuries to unforeseen damages to walls, roofs, and windows, it’s always a good idea to leave the exterior painting to the pros. Exterior painting requires a completely different set of skills than painting your kitchen’s focal wall, and it requires an entirely different set of tools, as well. Austin Painting and Cabinets can bring our experience, know-how, and tools to you to provide you with the high-quality, professional-looking home exterior you deserve. 

What Exterior Painting Services Include

Exterior painting involves more than just the application of high-quality exterior paint. We provide a bevy of services before we even open the first container of paint.

  • Cleaning - Paint won’t adhere to a dirty surface, so it’s important to start the exterior painting process with a thorough deep clean. This might involve scrub brushes and pails, or it might even involve the use of a power washer for durable exterior surfaces. 
  • Removing old paint and caulk - Before we can get started, we make sure that we have thoroughly cleaned up any leftover paint or caulk. Most of the paint and caulk removal is done manually with sanders, scrapers, and other tools. We are always mindful of our clients’ landscaping and health, so we will not use chemical cleaners in areas where wildlife, gardens, pets, or people could be adversely affected. 
  • Caulking - Applying new caulk to cracks around windows and doors (as well as other areas, where needed) prior to painting provides an important seal. We utilize the best, highest-quality caulk for the job and apply it meticulously. 
  • Priming - Paint adheres best to a clean surface that has been primed with a professional-grade exterior primer that suits the paint we will use on your home’s exterior. For example, if you have chosen a 100% acrylic latex paint, we will utilize a 100% acrylic resin primer to ensure the best possible adhesion for years to come. 
  • Painting - Finally, the painting process generally requires the careful application of an initial layer of paint followed by a second coat. In some situations, a third coat may be required, but two coats are the industry standard for a well-prepped and well-primed surface. 

As you can see, exterior painting involves much more than simply choosing a color and painting it onto the outside of your home. Austin Painting & Cabinets is one of Austin, TX’s most trusted providers of exterior painting services. Contact us today to learn more or to get a quote for your project.
