Painting houses in Florida is very different than painting houses up North. In Florida you deal with rough masonry walls and very aggressive weather. First off your house has to be pressure washed with at least a 2,800psi pressure washer with a 30/70 mix of bleach to water to remove and kill mold,, dirt and loose paint. Next the house needs to be sealed. A major corner cutter for homeowners who don't know painting in this environment. So many homeowners, property management companies and yes cheap local painting companies that go up against my company continue to paint over dirty chalky walls. It's ignorant and upsetting that this goes on today. Masonry walls need to be sealed to ensure proper adhesion for your top coats of paint. Otherwise your just throwing money up into the wind. Be smart and don't look at price when it comes to choosing your painting contractor, do your research first. Don't be like Forest Gump's mother says, Stupid is, as stupid does.

It's good practice to have your house power washed once a year to prevent dirt and mold build up on your paint. This will help make that paint job last longer and prevent early break down.

*The most important process in exterior house painting does not involve a paintbrush, roller or airless sprayer. It is the preparing of the surface prior to painting your home that will make or break the paint job. It is rarely the paint that fails but rather the adhesion or bounding of the paint to the surface below. The main reason paint fails is because the surface was not cleaned or prepared right. So always make sure your painting surface is clean, dry, free from grease, oils and flaking or loose paint. This will allow your primer and finish paint a good surface to bond. Painting the exterior of your house over a dirty or poorly prepared surface will always lead you to trouble down the road.
