Hi, my name is Steve Wyatt with Master Craft Painting. Today, were going to be talking just a little bit about scrapping and sanding. That’s a second step in the preparation of the painting of your homes exterior or right after washing.
A lot of people might be tempted to skip this step or not do a complete or thorough enough but what that’s going to do is going to cause the coating that you put on to fail prematurely. So very important to use the proper tools and the proper methods and take your time to do your job right because it’s going to make the paint job last a lot longer.
Professionals like myself, we have grinders which can be a little bit dangerous or vibrating sanders which are a little bit more user friendly for the home owner. I highly recommend using this because this is going to speed up the process and its going to make it a lot better job also. You can use just sand paper, you can fold it up into little sheets and sand it and feather all the edges after you have taken the scrapper. Or like I said the power sander is going to get the job done a lot faster.
You know the sanding is critical for two things. You know the rough edges where after you’re done with the scrapping. You want to feather this out so it doesn’t have the tendency to lift later on and also it’s going to provide us smoother more aesthetic appearance for the final product. All the surfaces that you want to sand or basically all the trim. You know we got the wood trim over here and any metal gates or fences, you know you want to sand. Sand all this surfaces smooth before you start applying any paint.
