Getting Ready For The Painters

What do You Need to Know About Getting Ready for Exterior painting?

Our goal is to make the painting process as simple and easy as possible. There are, however, certain tasks required by the client for most Exterior projects. These facilitate the most efficient and effective means of completing the project.

Although the items listed are usually the responsibility of the client, if any customer requires special consideration or assistance, our Elite manager and staff will be happy to oblige. You must simply inform your manager of your expectations during the estimate process.

Getting ready for your exterior painting project:

  • Removal of all deck furniture and other items that are near the house.
  • Closing all windows prior to the power washing of the house.
  • Opening all windows when the inner areas of the windows are being painted just after the painting to ensure they are not painted shut.
  • Inform immediate neighbours of painting work being done and, where necessary, gain permission to use neighbouring properties to facilitate access to various areas on the project.
  • The client will also be responsible for the final inspection on the day of completion. This final inspection will happen after the staff have completed their initial review and rectified any deficiencies they have found.
  • The crew will bag all their garbage, and the client will be responsible for placing the garbage for curb collection. (Note: All cans of paint will be empty, and all items within the bags will meet collection standards).
  • Remove the vehicle(s) from the driveway.
  • Dogs should be kept indoors.
  • Small children should be kept away from work areas.
  • Any windows painted outside must have the client open the a ¼-1/2 inch after painting to insure they are not painted shut ( note fir vinyl insert windows this does not apply as they are not usually painted)
