Hand Brush and Roll vs. Spraying
The high pressure washing method is commonly used today to prepare the surface of a home. What is not explained to the homeowner is that pressure washing forces moisture into the siding causing it to expand, resulting in irreversible damage. For this reason, we do not recommend this method of surface preparation.
Superior Preparation Methods – As in everything, preparation and foundation are the most important elements for long-term success. Cline Quality Painting utilizes this wisdom with proven techniques through our extensive preparation process. As our team thoroughly prepares the surface of your home, they will successfully accomplish the following; scrape and hand-sand loose paint and rough surfaces, re-caulk areas where caulking has previously failed using commercial grade caulking, nail in loose boards and protruding nails, and prime exposed and bare woods with top of the line commerical grade primer. All of our work is done carefully and by hand.
Hand Brushing – By hand brushing the paint onto the surface we’re able to achieve a better seal and a thicker coat which causes the paint to last longer. Moisture is one of the biggest enemies of paint. All you need is a few areas where coverage or seal has been compromised and now you have peeling paint. Since its extremely difficult to achieve a proper seal with the spray method we’ve always hand brushed the paint onto the surface. We also prepare the surface thoroughly by hand scraping and sanding any loose paint off, priming the bare wood, and caulking all cracks. The combination of correct preparation and application results in a job lasting twice as long as other inferior methods.
Superior Materials – Cline Quality Painting has found that KWAL AMBASSADOR SERIES 100% ACRYLIC is one of the highest-grade paint on the market that best serves the Colorado customer. This product is specifically designed for the high altitude weather concerns and dry climate that Colorado is known for. Because this paint is 100% acrylic, it allows the paint to expand and contract to accommodate all of these extremes. The Ambassador Series has a satin finish, which reflects high ultra-violet rays. This characteristic keeps the paint from fading, sustaining its intensity for years to come.
