Exterior painting

How we work

Before we even start painting the exterior of your home or building we prepare and plan for the very best outcome. We consider weather conditions and make sure it is perfect for painting which equals the best results. We sand to remove dirt and debris or any loose bits of paint. We often pressure wash the exterior surfaces if necessary. We will also use exterior caulking to fill in any gaps for a perfect finish.

Once we are prepped and ready we use two coats of exterior acrylic paint for aluminum and vinyl surfaces and alkyd for wooden surfaces.

Exterior painting is a cost-effective way to change the look and increase the value of your home. In addition to a fresh coat of paint or stain it also offers protection to the exterior surfaces. The elements are hard on our exteriors here In Canada and protecting these surfaces will add longevity to them. Belcam Painting offers the painting of vinyl siding, aluminum siding eavestrough, soffit and fascia, window frames, fences decks and exterior wooden structures.

Surface preparation like interior painting is as important as the paint itself. Exterior products range from water based acrylics to alkyd solid-based stains. These products have different properties and steps that are necessary to achieve maximum adhesion and longevity.

When it comes to exterior painting consider the following:

  • Short seasons in Canada mean painting can only be done at temperatures above 10 degrees Celsius. Many painters think because most paints are water based they will dry as long as it remains above freezing. This is not true because paint significantly loses its ability to dry and cure at these temperatures and takes longer.
  • Removal of common debris such as dirt, pollen, mildew, and mold.
  • Sunlight
  • Humidity also affects the dry time of paint. Dew also needs to completely evaporate off exterior surfaces before paint can be applied.
  • Determining whether the exterior paint is water based or oil based. Leave it to the professionals at Belcam Painting to determine what product you have on your home.
