Exterior House Painter
Does the exterior look of your home need a little bit of love? Have you just bought a house whose paint on the facade is crumbling?
Let our professional painters take care of it! After having proceeded to protect the premises with canvas and tarpaulins, our specialists clean the surface to be painted by scraping, sanding and / or sweeping away impurities and flaking.
Using ladders or scaffolds, they then cut out the facades with a brush and then “roll” using thicker sleeves to make sure they cover the entire surface. A large-scale job that will give new life into your building and make it look younger!
Aluminum or Textured Sidings
More and more aluminum stairs are popping up in Montreal and its surroundings. But beware: painting on aluminum is not at all the same as painting on wrought iron! In order to paint on this delicate surface, our painters first clean the surface with an alcohol-type liquid (or thinner) using a cloth to remove any greasy stain. As the aluminum has been coated with a smoothing coat at the factory, they then recommend sandblasting the surface lightly to maximize the adhesion of the paint. This is followed by the application of a primer, for greater durability over time, and layers of “special aluminum” finish paint (roller or “gun”). Our professionals will take care to respect the drying time for each step in order to obtain a perfect result.
Siding, Staircase, Balcony and Garage
Our professionals will respect the drying time for each step in order to obtain a perfect result.
Wood or Metal Staircase, Fence or Balcony
Wrought iron elements are legion in our cities: stairs, railings, balconies, doors, etc … and everyone gets down to it in summer. It is important to keep this material strong but prone to rust if neglected. Our team of exterior painters has made it a specialty!
The flow of operations is as follows:
After having protected the workplaces, the painter will sand the rusted and flaking surfaces with a grinder (or “grinder”) then a finer sanding with a wire brush or sandpaper. Then, he will resort to the application of an oil primer on the exposed parts (or on the entire structure), the application of at least 2 coats of special wrought iron oil paint , and ensure that the drying time between coats is respected. This is followed by cleaning and sweeping the premises, making sure nothing is left behind.
*Even if the surface is dry to the touch, it is recommended to leave the surface “alone” for 10 days.
Brick and Textured Sidings
Brick facades and other textured or cement coverings (foundations, undersides of windows, etc.), require the application of a special exterior (water-based) paint that lets the surface breathe well; they are covered with a thick roller (20 cm or more) to penetrate well into the joints and the roughness of the material.
A garage is totally part of a house, but we forget to give it the care it deserves: don’t leave it behind and breathe new life into it by having it completely repainted: walls, ceiling, pipes and even floor! You will gain in light and its appearance will immediately be more welcoming and clean than before!
Patio or Terrace Staining
Patio and terrace staining is a challenge because it must be done quickly: the weather must be ideally neither too hot (no direct sun), nor too cold (under 10 degrees), nor too humid (nor rain, obviously ) and this for at least 2 days!
The surface will be cleared of all furniture and decoration before the painter’s arrival. This will perform a brief sweep of the surface and then proceed to a complete sandblasting (or stripping) in order to apply the stain. Note that there are several types of stains: transparent, semi-transparent or opaque, you are free to choose the one that suits you best.
The dye has a double effect: protective and aesthetic; it protects wood from the elements by penetrating its fiber while it matches your decor.
*Note that new wood, never stained, will “drink” more product and require more!
