Repainting Your Property’s Exterior in the Summer: 5 Essential Tips

By July 8, 2024Uncategorized

Repainting your property’s exterior? Summer is the perfect time to refresh your property’s exterior with a new coat of paint. At re:fab, we ensure your project goes smoothly by considering all the critical factors. Here are five essential tips we follow to guarantee a successful summer repainting project for your property.

Monitoring the Weather

Summer weather can be unpredictable, but our experienced team knows how to navigate these challenges:

  • Detailed Weather Tracking: We carefully monitor the weather forecast to plan our painting days around dry, moderate temperatures.
  • Strategic Timing: We avoid painting in direct sunlight by working during early mornings or late afternoons to prevent paint from drying too quickly.
  • Contingency Planning: We stay prepared for sudden weather changes to minimize disruptions and ensure a consistent workflow.

Planning the Timeline

We understand that a well-planned timeline is crucial for a seamless project:

  • Flexible Scheduling: We schedule your project during your less busy periods to minimize disruption to your operations.
  • Built-In Flexibility: Our timeline includes extra days to account for unexpected delays, ensuring we stay on track.
  • Coordination with Maintenance: We align our painting schedule with other exterior maintenance tasks to avoid redundant disruptions.

Preparing the Building

Proper preparation is key to a lasting paint job, and our team excels at getting your property ready:

  • Thorough Cleaning: We use pressure washing to remove dirt, mold and mildew, ensuring a clean surface for painting.
  • Repair and Prime: We fix cracks, holes and other structural issues before painting and apply a high-quality primer for better adhesion and longevity.

Selecting the Right Materials

Choosing the right paint and materials is crucial, and we help you make the best choices:

  • High-Quality Paint: We recommend weather-resistant paint that can withstand summer heat and other conditions.
  • Appropriate Finishes: We’ll help you select the right finish—matte, satin or gloss—based on your exterior’s needs for the best results.
  • Professional Tools: Our team uses top-of-the-line brushes, rollers and sprayers to ensure a flawless application.

A skilled crew makes all the difference, and we pride ourselves on our expert team:

  • Customized Crew: We tailor our crew size and skills to match the specific requirements of your project, ensuring efficiency and quality.
  • Experienced Painters: Our licensed and ensured teams have extensive experience, ensuring that every aspect of your project is handled with expertise.
