Preparing A Surface For Painting

Proper surface preparation is essential for a top quality paint finish. The main causes for paint failure are:
  • Incomplete or improper surface preparation.
  • Improper fittings around house (ie. failed caulking) permitting moisture to seep into openings.
  • Wood touching moist ground.
  • Poor ventilation.
  • Painting over damp surfaces.
  • Poor quality paint or improper mixing of paint.
  • Careless application.

At Commercial Painting and Renovations Ltd. we use only the best quality paint available on the market. Good paint offers excellent colour retention as well as protection from:
  • An unpredictable environment.
  • Damaging weather.
  • Sunlight and ultraviolet radiation (UV).
  • Water and moisture.
  • Ice and snow.
  • High humidity.
  • Drastic temperature changes.

Step by Step Procedure for Painting
Windows, Siding and Trim

Painting Window Trim
  1. Scrape and remove all paint from window sill and sash.
  2. Remove and replace existing caulking between glass and window sash.
  3. Remove and replace old caulking between brick and window frames as required.
  4. Seal/caulk all cracks or openings where water might enter.
  5. Sand all areas to be painted for good adhesion and excellent finish. Spot prime all exposed wood.
  6. Notify owner/manager of any wood that needs replacement in writing prior to commencement of painting.
  7. Cover and protect all unpainted areas such as plants, personal items, etc.
  8. Apply finish coats as required to achieve a high quality finish.

Because of our extreme climate changes and difficult Canadian winters choosing the right paint for each surface is essential. We need superior adhesion and flexibility in a paint like Premium 100% Acrylic Latex.
