Exterior Metal Painting Process
Repainting metal surfaces is different from painting the walls inside a house. The steps of exterior metal painting include:
- Preparation: The key to any successful metal painting project is preparing the surface to receive the new finish. Depending on existing conditions, we may need to chemically strip or sand off old coatings. Scratches can be sanded out or filled prior to priming and painting to create a smooth surface.
- Masking: Before applying paint, we will cover up adjacent surfaces to protect them from overspray. This will also help create clean cut lines for more professional-looking results.
- Application: Paints or coatings are applied using a high volume low-pressure spray applicator. This helps the paint lay smoother and results in a more uniform finish. Rolling or brushing paint often results in visible streaks and an uneven finish.
