Exterior Painting Services

Exterior paint beautifies your home, improves its value, and protects it from the elements and prevents damage. Ray the Painter offers exterior painting and staining with either spray application or brush and roll. We also offer deck and fence staining.

Because preparation is key to a lasting paint job, we complete the following steps before painting. We are also EPA certified in lead paint removal.

  • Power Washing - Removes dirt, mildew, etc., that can prevent paint from bonding. (If applicable)
  • Scraping – Using a scraping knives and brushes to remove loose paint and provide a tight, primeable surface. 
  • Repairs - If your home needs minor repairs prior to painting, we have skilled employees who can handle most tasks.
  • Priming – All exposed wood must be primed in order to accept the new paint. We use premium exterior primers to prepare the surface and ensure a sound foundation for the new finish coat. We also use primer to seal any stains.
  • Caulking and Glazing – Caulking and glazing windows with a premium caulk reduces the airflow in these areas. We also caulk all major wood joints, and remove and replace loose glazing around wooden windows.
  • Painting - We use only premium paints from Sherwin-Williams, Benjamin Moore and a few other carefully selected coatings. Because some customers may prefer a less expensive grade of paint, we carefully discuss these options with our customers so they understand each product’s strengths and limitations.
