Your home is your biggest investment. A fresh coat of paint every few years will keep it looking good and protect your siding, windows and trim. It’s not that hard to do it yourself if you know all the essential steps.
The secret to a successful paint job is in the prep. If you take your time to do all the essential steps, the results will be a spectacular paint job that will last for years. Here's what you'll need for a quality paint job: exterior flat or eggshell paint; exterior semigloss paint; a pressure washer; a paint sprayer; a paintbrush; painter’s tape; drop cloths; a ladder; a paint scraper; stain-blocking primer; epoxy filler; a medium-grit sanding block; a putty knife; exterior caulk and a caulk gun; and plastic sheeting.
