Extreme heat can be a problem when painting the exterior of any building.  Now that the really hot days of summer are over, you may want to do some “autumn updating”!  The most important step in exterior house painting does not involve a paintbrush but rather paint scraping tools.  Preparing the surface before you exterior paint Geelong will make or break the job.  It is rarely the paint itself that fails, but rather the adhesion of the paint to the surface.  The reason paint fails to “stick” is because the surface to which it was applied was dirty, wet, or was loose itself.  To get the best result, make sure your paint surface is clean, dry, free from grease, oils and flaking or loose paint.  This will give your primer and paint a good surface from which to bond.  Painting the exterior of your house over a dirty or poorly prepared surface is like building a house on a bad foundation, and that’s never been a good idea.
