Paint Surface Preparation

An important step in exterior house painting requires paint scraping tools. The surface must be prepared.  Usually, paint film does not fail.  Paint failure is typically caused by adhesion of the paint to the surface below.  Problems are caused when the substrate is dirty, wet or loose.  A clean, dry surface free from grease, oil, flaked paint chips and loose paint will bond the primer.  Preparation of the surface is a step that “cheap” painters overlook.  Conversely, Finaltone Painting takes this step seriously.
