We often find that the one of the main reasons for repainting the exteriors of homes is not so much that the paint has failed, but that it has faded or oxidized. This was the case with Hyyppa residence. An oxidized paint surface has a fine lay of dust which needs to be removed as much as possible to make sure subsequent layer of paint adheres. A premium quality paint will minimize the damaging effects of the weather and lead to a paint job that will last longer.
This home had old aluminum siding that had become badly oxidized. Our local house painters pressure washed and then primed all surfaces with a special paint additive designed to stick to chalky surfaces. Our customer was very happy with the result.
