Exterior House Painting FAQs

Is There a Difference Between Hand-Brushed and Sprayed Paint?

Carlson's Proficient Painting uses spraying to create a flawless satin finish that looks very appealing on all surfaces. Hand brushing may not give you the complete, even coverage you are looking for on high end surfaces. A spray gun on the other hand, will give you full coverage and a more even coating. Save hand brushing for updating trim and molding, places where spraying wouldn't be ideal.

What Is Elastomeric Paint?

Elastomeric paint is designed to protect masonry surfaces. These coatings help protect your stucco or brick from wind driven rain to create a waterproof system.

How Long Does It Take for New Paint to Dry?

The drying time for exterior house paint can vary depending on several factors such as the type of paint used, weather conditions, and the surface being painted. Generally, latex or acrylic-based paints can dry to the touch within a few hours, but it may take up to 24 hours or more for the paint to fully cure. Oil-based paints typically take longer to dry, often requiring 24 to 48 hours or more. However, it's essential to follow the manufacturer's recommendations for drying and curing times, as well as consider the specific environmental conditions in your area.

Does My Whole House Need to Be Primed Before Being Painted?

For better results, priming your home's walls before painting is a good idea. That is especially true if the old paint color is remarkably different from the new paint color. Areas of the wall that have been patched and sanded should be primed first before painting.

How Long Does It Take for New Paint to Dry?

Latex paint dries in about 4 hours. Oil-based paint dries in 6 to 8 hours. You should allow paint to completely dry before applying a second coat. Paint that is sticky to the touch after 24 hours is defective and requires priming or removal before you paint over it.

Testimonials

  • reviewiconWe would give Carlson's 20 stars if possible!
    Eric and his crew were a pleasure to work with. He scheduled a day/time to come review the job. He was right on time! He kept in communication with his quote which was extremely reasonable, the timing of the job, and what we wanted for paint colors, etc. He uses high quality Sherwin Williams paint. On the first day of the job, he arrived with his crew, Eddie, Kurt and Mark to review the job with them. The guys were very professional, friendly, and paid attention to all the details. They cleaned up at the end of the day before leaving. They did an amazing job painting our condo. It looks brand new and we have had fun showing our neighbors and passing the word that they need to call Carlson's for their painting needs. (We live in a 55+ complex). We highly recommend Carlson's Proficient Painting. Thank you Eric and crew!!

    Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Negative: None Carlson's is not just Proficient, they're also Professional, Punctual and Personable, and, well, all around good guys. After getting multiple bids to paint our two-story house, we selected Eric and his crew. Not only did they offer one of the best prices, but they also provided the most detailed quote, as well as the most in-depth bid package from Sherwin Williams (which explained every step of the prep, repairing, sealing and painting process). It's obvious Eric truly cares about his work (and so does his crew). He's a man of his word, and won't stop until he gets it right. Integrity is a hard thing to find nowadays; Eric has it. We'll be using him again, and referring him to friends. We've had so many compliments on the job Carlson's did; heck, half the neighborhood wants him to do their houses!

    Mr. Carlson WAS ON TIME EVERY TIME!!! On our first meeting everything was explained, the time line the painting process the quality of the paint he would use and the equipment he would be using. Mr. Carlson also took the time to explain to my neighbors what he was going to do and any impact it would have on there property (there was none). The painting of my house meet all my expectations and more. No over spray on my plaints or grass, the cleanup process was undetectable! Mr. Carlson also painted my Aunts house with the same professional results. Job Well Done!

    If I could give Eric and Carlson's Proficient Painting SIX stars, I would. Reasonable prices, super efficient. My wife and I couldn't be happier with the results! Also, initially there was a little miscommunication about the color paint we wanted and he had already ordered the paint. However, he was super understanding and ate the costs of the other paint and ordered the paint we actually wanted without hesitation! He and his crew came back several times to do touch-ups to make it looks absolutely perfect. If you want a HIGH PROFESSIONAL QUALITY paint job at budget prices, Eric at Carlson's is your man!!
