Exterior Painter in Schaumburg Il
If you are wanting to make the presentation of the outside of your home or business look just as great as the inside, you may want to consider exterior painting. This service is where we paint the outside of your structure to either blend it in to the surroundings or give it a signature look with as much character as the inside. Here we explain about what this involves and how our team of professionals can help with the transformation of your space.
Surface preparation is an integral part of the integrity of your external paint works. If your surface is damaged or peeling, the paint we apply to the exterior will not be able to hold properly. This would likely cause cracking appearing quite quickly, as well as an uneven surface immediately after the paint work is done. To prepare the external surface that is due to be painted we may need to remove some paint and sand back the materials so that we have a flat surface to work with and create a workable foundation. This will help to ensure the long-lasting exterior paint works.
Design & Finish
The design of your exterior is something that is personal preference. Some prefer to have a matching color scheme, whilst others would like to have something creative and unique. Our team at Schaumburg Painters are passionate about paint and have experience in what looks great and what colors can clash, giving an unappealing look. If you are looking for guidance or paint ideas, our team will gladly assist. They are happy to provide you with swatches as well as attend site to advice on what color scheme would suit your property if you are looking for something completely new.
After the design and color scheme have been settled on, we complete the site preparation works of removing existing paints and ensuring the surface is flat and ready for new paint to be applied. An undercoat will be applied, as well as a few additional coats dependent on the selection of paint. The ability to be able to paint exteriors is impacted by the elements and is work that we are often unable to complete during the wetter seasons as the rain will damage the paint and affect the finish. Schaumburg Painters will be completely transparent with you on the estimated completion time, as well as any delays in works due to weather. The weather can also impact drying time, with the paint drying much faster in the sunny months.
Protection of your exterior paint is an element you must consider if you are looking for a long-lasting paint job. There are a number of options available for consideration when discussing protection, with the most basic being weatherproof paint. This is something we recommend for all external paint works as it is designed to withstand the elements both rain and direct sun light. We will discuss all protection measures with our clients before commencing works.
