#1 You should pay attention to preparing the surfaces first making sure repairs take place prior to painting. It's not the fun part of the task, rather it's the most important part of painting. If you fail to prepare the surface, no matter how exclusive painting material you're using, it'll fail. Make sure there is no peeling paint left on wood and use the proper caulk for cracks along the trimwork and other small holes.

When your project nears completion, the team leader conducts a walk-through with you to identify any outstanding items. Once all items have been completed, it is reviewed again and the team leader presents the bill. At that time you provide payment to the team leader made payable to Harrington's. Each team is operated as a micro-business unit by the team leader.


Deciding which paint to use has gotten much easier now that acrylic latexes have pushed oil-based paints almost to extinction. The acrylics offer superior performance (they don't harden with age, the way oils do, so they move and breathe without blistering), they don't mildew as readily, and they emit fewer VOCs, so they comply with new air-quality regulations. They also work over both oil- and water-based primers.

A thorough scrubbing is a must before painting any exterior surface. It removes the dirt and broken-down paint residues that keep fresh coats from adhering and gets rid of mildew that grows on paint in all but the most arid climates. Most contractors clean with pressure washers, but in the hands of someone unfamiliar with the equipment, these can gouge wood, shatter glass, and drive water behind siding and trim. Using a hose, a pump sprayer, and a scrub brush is slower but safer, and just as effective.
