One of the first factors to consider when undertaking a house painting project is the height of the building. Irrespective of the number of stories the building has, the external areas, above the ground level, must be painted and sealed to the harsh Jacksonville, Fl. elements.
Safety is an important consideration when planning to paint the exterior of a house due to its height or obstacles that may be in the way. It is imperative to stand square & comfortably on a ladder during the painting process, and this can be tricky if hard to reach areas are needing attention. That is why it is best to hire a painting company that has the tools and/or experience to avoid safety hazards.
If you’re thinking about painting over the bricks on your house; note, that it would be almost impossible to recover the natural aesthetics of the bricks after painting. Although the results of painting the blocks can be stunning. The best way to protect bricks from the elements is to apply a brick sealer. This will keep its natural appearance and give a fresh look to the exterior brick.
However, the first step is to examine the state of the bricks for cracks or chips and fix them before going ahead with the exterior painting. Professional exterior painters call this “point up”. A professional painting company knows how to assess and paint the bricks.
