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: Top-Tier Professional Painting will then wait for the house to dry.  We do all scraping and sanding of flaking, chipping, or peeling paint then prime all bare wood surfaces.   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.

Top-Tier Professional Painting then inspects for areas that will need to be caulked.  We use a 45-55 year caulk and seals soffit vents, vinyl windows, re-caulk 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.  Top-Tier Professional Painting 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 paint in a one-coat or two-coat process to thickness specifications.  Number of coats depends on coverage and primarily on the color scheme of the project. If the same colors are being used as the previous paint job, one coat is included in the pricing. If color change is indicated, two coats are included. 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.  Gutters are primed and painted – gutters are not included in the scope of work unless specified otherwise.  The body of your structure is painted using an airless sprayer or brush and roll depending on the project. Top-Tier applies 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 painting giving them 3 layers of paint.

Clean: Top-Tier Professional Painting will try to clean the job site cleaner then when we arrived.  This includes picking up all trash, cleaning all walkways, driveways, porches, etc.

Touch up Kit:  At the end of the project, the remaining paint will be labeled and left behind for your convenience.

 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, The Top-Tier Professional Painting jobsite manager will give you the invoice along with a touch up request, customer suggestion form, and invoice, for your convenience and satisfaction.  We encourage all customers to send the suggestion form in whether positive or negative to help improve customer service.  All reviews will be used on our website and social media to help promote our business.
