Residential Exterior Painting Annapolis Valley
What’s the most critical consideration for protecting your home? Residential exterior painting!
Let’s not beat around the bush. The weather in the Annapolis Valley, NS, can be pretty extreme. We certainly get it all, from harsh sunlight and heat to bitter cold, rain to sleet to feet of snow. All of that takes a massive toll on your home’s exterior. In a surprisingly short time, your home’s exterior can transform from lovely to aged, bright and new to dingy and old.
It’s about more than just aesthetics, though. It’s about protection and ensuring that your home stands the test of time. Left unprotected, wood, metal, and other materials can succumb to the effects of exposure to the elements. At Elite Trade Painting, we use the highest-quality paints and stains, combined with modern painting tools and in-depth knowledge to protect your home keep it looking beautiful for years to come.

Understanding the exterior painting process
Successfully painting a home’s exterior requires so much more than a can of paint, a ladder, and a roller. Our team uses the right paints, stains, and equipment, but we also follow a specific, intentionally developed process to ensure the best results for every single home we paint.
The first thing we do is complete a full, in-depth, professional inspection of your home’s exterior. This is critical for noticing things like damaged siding or any degradation around wood window frames. After the inspection, we’ll discuss everything with you.
You can’t paint a dirty exterior. So, the next step is a thorough cleaning using advanced power washing equipment (and non-toxic cleaners to protect you, your family, your pets, and the environment). We remove dirt, dust, pollen, bird droppings, mildew, mould, and other problematic substances.
We Let It Dry
Your home’s exterior must be completely dry before we can paint it, so we provide a flexible window to allow that and accommodate the weather.
We Sand and Prep It
With a clean exterior, it’s time for us to sand down loose paint and damage and get your home ready for the actual paint. We’ll even fill in damaged areas, such as chips and minor holes to ensure a smooth, beautiful coat when we’re done. Anything that cannot be repaired will be replaced.
We Prime It
Primer is just as important as the final coat of paint, perhaps more so. We use industry-leading primers designed to prevent any old colours from bleeding through.
We Caulk the Gaps
The priming process gives our team a good look at areas around the windows and doors that might need a little TLC. We caulk these gaps to provide a smooth, professional finish, but also to help reduce airflow and energy use in your home.
Finally, we get to the grand finale – the application of your paint. We use industry-best brands combined with decades of expertise in paint application to transform your home.
