When it comes to giving your curb appeal a little boost, perhaps nothing can make a bigger difference than exterior painting. However, before you head to your local, Frederick, Maryland Home Depot and buy several buckets of paint, there are a few things you should be aware of.
3 Tips to Ensure a Smooth Residential Painting Project
Getting Permission from Your Homeowners Association
When it comes to exterior home improvement projects, homeowners associations have a lot to say – a lot. HOAs often have a strict set of guidelines dictating the specifics of outdoor projects. These guidelines range from fence height and style to – you guessed it – home color. So before you begin any home improvement project, especially an exterior painting project, it is important to contact your HOA and get your project approved. This process can sometimes take weeks, so don’t delay.
Prepare Your Home
In order to ensure a smooth residential painting project, you must first ensure your home is smooth. This means cleaning your home (typically using a power washer) to remove any dirt and grime, tapping all nail heads below the surface and filling the holes with putty, and scraping and sanding any rough spots where the old paint has blistered or flaked off.
If these steps are not adhered to, the new paint will not adhere to your home.
If You Want Professional Quality, Hire a Professional Painter
