Exterior paint has to deal with a lot more then it's interior counterpart. That's why proper prep work is key to having a successful and long lasting exterior painting project. Any and all paint that is chipping, pealing or "alligatoring" should be properly scrapped and completely removed. Rough area's need to be sanded before a coat of primer is applied on all area's being painted.
When starting exterior painting, you don't necessarily have to paint your entire home. If you're just looking to change the look of your house, choose a new color for your trim. This is a great way to give your home a great new look while saving you money on a complete paint job.
It's usually better to hire professional painting contractors to complete your exterior painting projects. These licensed and insured experts are very experienced with working on tall ladders and getting to hard to reach spots. They can also evaluate your home's current paint to determine what shape it's in. These exterior painting contractors will also be able to quickly decide on whether or not your home has any asbestos materials which can be painted, certainly should not be sanded or removed without proper breathing apparatus.
