Cleaning and preparation
Standard preparation almost always includes soft-washing of exterior surfaces (even hand-washing if necessary on older homes,) and sanding any paint that’s failing. We also do scuff-sanding of shiny surfaces to ensure paint adhesion, spot-priming of bare wood or metal, minor caulking of gaps and cracks, and so on.
These services are included in every Dunbar Painting exterior paint job.
If your exterior needs more extensive repairs — like hole repair, extensive caulking, intensive sanding, or window re-glazing — we’ll discuss them with you first.
We can also handle minor restorative carpentry — for example, removing a rotten beam and rebuilding with filler.
