Why You Should Pressure Wash Your Home Before Painting It
One of your biggest concerns is keeping your home healthy and attractive. Painting your home's exterior is a great way to do both of those things, and it can also increase your home's resale value. However, when you have your home's exterior painted, you need to know that you're getting the highest quality paint job possible—otherwise, you may see its appearance quickly decline, and you'll have to repaint repaint much sooner than should.
At GSG Painting Contractors, our New Jersey painters can always guarantee the highest quality products and workmanship possible, so when you hire us for exterior painting, you can rest assured that we'll perform the job well. We can also provide pressure washing services, which we always recommend you have performed prior to an exterior painting project.
Here are a few reasons you should always pressure wash your home before you have it painted:
Pressure Washing Guarantees the Longest Lasting Paint Job Possible
Your home's exterior is constantly exposed to weather and the elements, so over time, it accumulates a lot of dirt, grime, and other other substances on its surface. Even if you can't see these things, they're probably all over your home's exterior walls. When you pain your home without pressure washing it, the paint is applied to these build-ups instead of directly to your home's siding. Whether it's dirt, grime, or mold or mildew growths, this can be a serious problem for your New Jersey home.
If you paint over these build-ups, the paint will not be able to properly adhere to your home's walls. In a short period of time, the paint will begin to crack and peel since it's only adhered to an outer layer of grime. Pressure washing will ensure the proper adhesion of paint and guarantee a long-lasting paint job.
Professionals Know Exactly What to Do—And What Not to Do
Why hire a professional for this job instead of just renting a pressure washer? The short answer: it's worth it.
No one likes to spend more money than they need to, but hiring a professional pressure washing contractor could save you money in the long run. Professional-grade pressure washing equipment can be difficult and dangerous to handle. Our professionals can guarantee that no part of your home will be damaged during the pressure washing process.
