Over the years, the paint on your home can start looking dirty and faded. Perhaps the change of seasons is inspiring you to put a fresh coat on your home’s exterior or perhaps you are trying to sell your home. Whatever the case may be, you should consider pressure washing before painting. Here’s why.
Paint adheres to clean surfaces better than dirty ones.
Painting a pollen-coated, dirt-covered surface isn’t just disgusting, it’s also ineffective. Because paint adheres to a clean surface better than a dirty one, pressure washing your home prior to painting can actually lead to a more smooth, long-lasting paint job!
Pressure washing can make your house look good as new!
Did you know having your home pressure washed before you paint can be cost-effective? Sometimes we look at how dingy the exterior of our home looks and mistakenly think it needs an extra coat of paint when all it really needs is a good cleaning! If you’re thinking about getting your home re-painted, we challenge you to have it pressure washed first. See how it looks after getting pressure washed, and if it still needs painting, go for it. If not, you just got yourself a fresh-looking home for a fraction of the cost of a re-paint job!
