When painting outside, it is always best to check the tin for the minimum/maximum temperatures. You must also take into account chill factors, especially on metal, as this can reduce surface temperatures considerably. From a health and safety perspective, there isn't a specific minimum or maximum temperature for a worker to paint in. Dress appropriately and stay ventilated/hydrated.

#2 Many time, homeowners complain about the paint quality as they often see stains come through the new paint and show up on the wall again. Again, it is important to prep the surface, ust the proper primer. If you have tough stains on the exterior walls prior to painting, then make sure you use a quality stain block to prevent the stain from bleeding through.
When the primer is dry, caulk all small joints (less than ¼-inch-wide) in the siding and trim. Most pros use siliconized acrylics—paint won't stick to straight silicones—but Guertin and O'Neil like the new, more expensive urethane acrylics for their greater flexibility and longevity. O'Neil stresses that it's shortsighted to skimp on caulk. "If the joint fails, you're back to square one." Guertin uses the lifetime rating as his quality guide. "I don't expect 35-year caulk will last 35 years, but it should last longer than a 15-year caulk."
Some service pros are employees, franchisees, dealers or independent contractors ("Corporate SP's") of larger national or "Corporate Accounts". When this is the case, you may be matched with the Corporate Account or with one of their Corporate service professionals. The above screening process is not applicable to Corporate Accounts, as HomeAdvisor does not screen Corporate Accounts or Corporate service professionals.
Start at the top of your house and work your way down. This serves two purposes. First, it allows you go down the ladder instead of up as you work, preventing potentially life threatening falls. Also, when prepping/scraping the paint off, you will have debris falling on the bottom areas that you just painted. Second, painting from top to bottom prevents messy drips and missed spots. Ideally, you should also start painting from the left side and work your way right because you are more likely to see any missed spots.
Excellent service. Very dependable. They have shown up every time and always do a professional job. I never worry about what the outcome is. They are consistent and predictable. I have also used them for some irrigation issues I had, and they resolved the issue perfectly. I am looking forward to continued excellent service, and some future additions. Thank you! "
We were more than happy with the work Southern Painting did for us! They were very patient with us during a bumpy time in life....causing one delay after another (on our end) and when we were finally able to get started, they were ready to go! Their crew was efficient, considerate and careful. They did a great job painting our exterior while protecting everything else from any overspray. Our house looks beautiful and refreshed! I highly recommend! We worked ...
