Chiswick Handyman Exterior Painting

Chiswick handyman's, painters and decorators, provide a superior exterior painting job and use the following process to guarantee the quality of their painting finish.

How do we paint that exterior wall?

Step 1: Washing. All of the areas that will be painted within your scope of work will be thoroughly washed. We use a proprietary bleach solution and wash the walls with a brush. This will remove all mildew, algae,  dirt and other deposits.

Step 2: Protection. All of the surfaces and garden area to be worked around, will be protected with canvas and plastic tarpaulins.  Additionally, paper tape will be used to protect any areas where canvas sheets would be impractical.

Step 3: Scraping & brushing. Failing paint must be removed. Any loose, flaking and/or peeling paint will be thoroughly hand scraped and wire brushed.

Step 4: Repairing. Where the walls needs repairing ie replacing timber/bricks,  pointing, cement rendering, or pebble dashing, this then needs to sealed using 2coats of a  PVA sealing agent, prior to painting.

Step 5: Sealing. Joints and seams allowing exterior moisture entry will be sealing using a silicon based sealant.. 

Step 6: Priming. Priming wood and metal will be done with quality primers. Horizontal areas where water may sit creating rusting areas will be given two coats of primer.

Step 7: Painting! As you can see, painting doesn't even begin until we have done a thorough preparation  job. At this point, painting can proceed using the best quality paints and applicators.

We cover the West London and Southwest  London, from Chiswick, Kew, Acton, Richmond, Barnes, Brentford, Sheen, Mortlake, Twickenham, Putney, Fulham and Hammersmith areas. We specialise in all those small and large building maintenance, renovation, installation and repair jobs around th e house, office or rented property.
