To get started, we will schedule a consultation with you to go over the scope of work and provide you with an estimate. Next, we will pressure wash the surface to be painted. After the surface is dry, we will start painting with high-quality paint! After your commercial painting or residential painting is finished, our crew will walk through the project with you to ensure that you are happy with the results.
Depends on the Type and Quality of the Paint
If your home or business’ exterior paint is latex-based, you can usually wait five to seven years before re-painting. However, if it’s oil-based, you’ll likely need to repaint every three to four years. Exterior paint can also fade if it’s of poor quality. If you want your paint job to last, use high-quality, weather-resistant paint. The Property Pilot exterior painting team only uses the best quality paint to ensure a long-lasting finish!
Depends on the Climate
Humid areas, like Long Beach, tend to break down exterior paint more quickly and you’ll likely need to repaint more often than someone who lives in a drier climate. We advise repainting every three to five years in humid climates. Turn to Property Pilot for your commercial painting or residential painting needs when it’s time to repaint your exterior!
Depends on the Amount of Direct Sunlight on Your Home or Business
Exterior paint that’s exposed to direct sunlight can fade faster than paint that’s in the shade. If your home or business is in an area with intense sun exposure, you might need to repaint every three to five years. However, if your home or business is in a more shaded area, you might be able to wait five to seven years between paint jobs.
