Commercial Painting Projects ~ Frequently Asked Questions

For optimal results, it’s advisable to utilize an oil-based paint in conjunction with a premium primer. This strategic combination not only enhances adhesion but also promotes uniformity and durability of the paint application.

When it comes to application, employing two coats of paint is recommended to achieve an even and robust coverage. However, it’s imperative to exercise patience between coats. Waiting until the first coat is entirely dry to the touch before proceeding with the second coat ensures proper adhesion and prevents undesirable blending or smudging of the paint layers.

This methodical approach not only maximizes the longevity and aesthetic appeal of the paint job but also upholds professional standards of craftsmanship.

Begin by thoroughly pressure washing the entire brick area you wish to seal, ensuring it’s completely dry before proceeding. Then, consider the type of sealant you prefer, with options ranging from paint to surface sealers and penetrating sealers.

Paint, being the most economical option, provides full coverage but obscures the natural brick texture. While it requires regular maintenance like typical exterior house paint, it doesn’t last as long as surface or penetrating sealants.

Surface sealants, though pricier than paint, offer a clear, long-lasting finish with minimal upkeep as they don’t penetrate the porous brick surface.

On the other hand, penetrating sealants, the costliest choice, deeply penetrate the brick’s pores, offering exceptional durability and longevity—up to 30 years. However, it’s crucial to choose a brand that allows the brick to “breathe” to prevent moisture-related damage.

Consider your preferences and needs carefully before selecting the most suitable sealant for your brick surfaces.

Several factors can influence a painting estimate. Keep these considerations in mind when discussing your project with your painting contractor:

  1. Surfaces and desired finishes
  2. Necessary prep work, repairs, or patching
  3. Paint quality
  4. Number of coats required for full coverage
  5. Use of specialty equipment or processes
  6. Project timeline
  7. Size of the project area

The most time-intensive aspect of revitalizing an old, severely weathered deck is identifying and replacing damaged or rotted wood. After repairs, thoroughly power wash the deck and ensure it dries completely before proceeding.

Next, focus on stripping areas with peeling paint or finish. Full deck stripping is unnecessary unless you’re changing the color. Sand the deck until it’s smooth to the touch, then apply two coats of high-quality premium stain or sealant, allowing each coat to dry thoroughly before applying the next.
