Painting Exterior Wall
Now that we know the fastest way to increasing the curb appeal of our business or home is to apply a fresh coat of paint to its exterior walls, there are a few things we should keep in mind.
1. Remove any debris (i.e. dust, dirt, cobwebs etc) from the surfaces to be painted.
2. Repair any damages to the surfaces before applying the paint. If there are no damages to be repaired, simply use a scraper to scrape off any old paint. This will provide us with a smooth, flat surface to paint.
3. Now that we have a clean canvas to work with, apply 3 coats of exterior grade paint to lengthen its lifespan.
