There is more to a quality paint job than just applying some paint to a surface. Properly preparing the surfaces to be painted is one of the first and most important steps in a quality paint job. As with most home improvement projects, proper planning and preparation are the keys to successful interior painting. Paint manufacturers are now producing new generations of latex paints, and these paints are as durable as oil paints. The result is a quick drying paint that cleans with water and most importantly, these new paints do not emit harmful and irritating fumes.
One benefit of these new latex paints is that the painter can work in an area until the end of the working day, and that area will still be accessible and usable to the homeowner within a few hours of cleanup. The greatly reduced odors means that painters do not need to totally disrupt a family's lifestyle while a project is being completed.

For any exterior paint job the most important step is proper surface preparation. Taking the necessary time for proper surface preparation and using the highest quality paint are crucial for achieving a long lasting paint job. No paint job will last forever. However, the life of paint can be extended with the proper care, maintenance and surface preparation. Exterior paint requires considerably more maintenance. Regularly removing dirt and mildew will not only keep the paint looking fresh, but will also prevent mildew growth from destroying the paint film.
Exterior Painting Includes:
Thorough cleaning to remove dirt and mildew
All loose paint and defective caulking is removed
Replace window putty where needed
Rotted boards are replaced and all new wood is primed
