How To Paint A House. The 4 Step Process To Painting Your Home.



this is chris yahoo painter in this video i'm going to walk you through the steps of what it takes to actually paint your house and this includes the pressure washing the prepping including the caulking and the priming and then the masking of the house before painting and then the actual painting so stay tuned to this video and watch us as we show you the steps depending your house the first step of this process is actually cleaning your house give it a nice good clean sound surface to paint on so we're going to show you this pressure washing process right now you I you now we're going to get on to the very important process and that's actually the prepping including the priming and the caulking this is what's really gonna give you a nice clean look to your house is doing that proper caulking and the proper prepping and it's going to make your paint job last a long time so here we go let me show you what we talked and what we sand and some of the things we actually prime so stay tuned to the video on how to prep a house so you can see I'm in the Stanford wave right now one of the things we do caulk in the entryway we any the trim boards on the entryway because we want it to look really nice neat and tidy and on the house caulking all the nail heads on the house as you can see right here this type of caulking on the entryway is purely for looks but it does keep bugs out of all these cracks and stuff that we've got cocked here here we got Shawn over here he's actually sanding the door jambs with a paint eater and then after that we're going to caulk the door jambs let the caulking dried then we're going to prime them with a peel bond primer if you run into any loose nails you definitely want to hammer in any loose nails or any protruding nails on the surface we always the back side of the face jaw so throughout my videos I'm using a lot of tools and accessories if you're in need of any painting tools and accessories you can always go do my amazon tool store right there and i click on the logo anytime in any of my videos and that will take you to my Amazon tool store where you can purchase most my tools and accessories and typically a lot cheaper than you can get them at your do-it-yourself painting stores or hardware stores so click on the logo right there anytime you see it go to my Amazon tool store we had some new trim on here that was installed so you definitely ought to cut the nail heads on the new tram got some nail heads on these corner boards that we want to caulk we always copy soffit vents up here a lot of times these things are just stapled in and over time they'll begin to fall out if you them it'll keep them from falling out anywhere where you have that bare wood you want to use a primer we're using a peel bond primer on all the bare wood on this house anywhere where we've had to do any sanding we're priming it hopefully behind me you can see some of the caulking we've done all the nail heads are cocked here got some priming on some of the batting boards the trim some of the blistering on the siding over here this is some of what we do when we're prepping a house not on the painting day you got a mask off your house to get it all ready to paint so we're going to walk you through some of the masking steps and what we actually mask before spraying so stay tuned here we go so I got a house here gonna walk you through what we actually mask with plastic and what we actually mask with paper show you some of the masking we have we got we take put paper masking 9-inch paper on any roof lines so we don't get out of any overspray on the roofs we're going to take and put drop cloths on those areas too but you can see the masking on the roof we mask all the windows off so we don't get overspray on the windows we must ROG doors on the ground so when we actually spray the garage door we don't get overspray on the garage doors we mask off any brick or rock so we don't get any overspray on brick and rock and typically all the masking we're using is 9 inch paper with 1 inch 20/20 tape around any light fixtures and electrical outlets anything that can get overspray these your vents but will typically mask them so they'll look nice crisp and clean and match the house got same over here I got masking on windows you got a vinyl fence that we passed 9 inch paper keep the overspray off the vinyl fence we've got two doors in the back that we've masked off we're gonna be spraying these doors so we've masked them off we all get overspray on the doors got thresholds masked fill it in with my 3m 20/20 tape it's cheaper product tapes pulps $5 a roll that 3m 20/20 tapes about a dollar a roll now the final step of pinning your house is the actual painting process so now we're going to walk you through using the airless sprayer painting your house and then the rolling process of drawing the trim so here we go watch this last process of being in your house by 15 tip on here right we're using a cardboard shield and older this is I typically when I'm spraying always got a cardboard to be open folder that I use to help shield off the bottom to keep any overspray off my footings we got a drop box set down here just in case anything drips on the concrete we don't want to get any drips on the concrete we got our 6.95 set up over there on the side and I've got a massive respirator always use one spraying and we're going to take it to spray and we're going to typically look for good start and stop points because you don't want to start and stop in the middle of the house you always want to have logical start and stop points these are good start and stop points a corner and a batting board right here coming down the middle we've got over here this other section we got a batting board here and a down battle board over here these are good start and stop points but you try the best you can so let's start down really already sprayed the bottom but I'll show your video I use a cardboard seal the bottom doing my thing in the end oddly right inside is a really dark color so we got these holes you want to make sure it's dark over light so if it hit you say get an angle to get beside those balls and then when I'm spraying my lap siding you want to make sure you get underneath the lip so what I'm spraying I'm not spraying straight on I'm actually spraying at an angle shooting up I always release my trigger and my to start and stop it actually saves you pain you use more paint doing Southside so now with this 30-inch gun extension I can reach higher I don't need to get on a ladder and I can reach farther so I don't have to walk as much so using a gun extension it's going to keep you from walking as much keep you from bending over as much and keep you from having to reach with a ladder as high so use this gun extension you can see the guys you so I know this was a really fast rundown of what it takes to actually paint the exterior house but I've got a lot more videos on my channel the at-home painter that will explain these processes in detail now get ready and stay tuned for the end don't leave now I got two more videos for you to watch and these are going to help you paint your house a lot easier and a lot faster and one of them right above me right here and that's going to teach you how to mask a roof line I've got another video right over here and that video is going to show you how to operate an airless paint sprayer and when you don't watch my videos don't forget to subscribe by clicking on the red button right there right there to subscribe

    Chris, the long extension on the spray gun, how do you stop it spitting each time you shut off. I can't see you using a 'clean-shot' on it. Is it a case of the spray pressure being reduced?

    Here in Southern Oregon it's early into November, and nighttime lows are into the mid 30's, highs in the 50's. Is it too late to paint my exterior this season? I use standard acrylic latex.

    For exterior caulk you should use a class A caulk (920 )like Sher-Max or powerhouse caulk not a (834)950- caulk with is very good for interior not so good for exterior whether.

    When you pressure wash the exterior do you use chemicals or is it just pressure washing?

    Also when you do gutters do you do soft wash or do you still pressure wash?

    Dude… As long as it took you to mask everything, I would've been done painting the damn house- brush, roller, whiz, pole… Plus spraying is less than half the millage of paint… Why spray!??
