-- Fall is an excellent time to give your home a new coat of paint. Atlanta painting company
The Painting Penguin says that whether you are doing the painting yourself or hiring Atlanta painting contractors like theirs to do it, it is important to give your home a good pressure washing first.
Why Pressure Wash Before you Paint?
Whether you do it yourself or hire a professional, you are putting time and money into a new paint job. You do not want to paint over dirt. Often, people do not think their siding looks dirty, or they believe that a good cleaning with the garden hose will do the trick. However, if you have ever had your driveway or patio pressure washed, you have seen how much ground-in dirt and debris is removed, compared with what a traditional hose can get. Think about what has built up on your house's exterior over the seasons.
The main advantage of a thorough pressure washing is that your new coat of paint will last longer. If you don't pressure wash your house before you paint, the new coat of paint may look fine at first, but it won't last as long. You will end up having to spend money to repaint years earlier than you would have otherwise.
Why Hire a Professional?
You can rent or purchase a pressure washer and cleaning solution at major home improvement stores. However, it is better and safer to let a professional do it. A pressure washer is not just a high-powered hose. There are actually four elements to pressure washing: chemicals, appropriate temperature, water flow, and pressure. Most homeowners can achieve the correct water flow pressure, but using the right chemicals and temperature is another matter. If you don't get them right, you risk not just doing a poor job of washing, but actually causing damage to the exterior of your home.
The Painting Penguin provides pressure washing. Their professionals can give your home a thorough washing before they paint it. Even if you choose to paint your home yourself, you can still hire them to pressure wash your house and other outdoor surfaces.
Stephen Popov, Managing Partner of The Painting Penguin, says, "We Atlantans spend a lot of time outdoors, so it is important to keep all of our outdoor areas, including decks, fences, patios, and walkways, as well as our home exteriors, as clean and attractive as possible." That's why they provide pressure washing services in addition to their house painting in Atlanta, Ga.
