Painting brick house.


in this video by abn painting we are
doing preparation work and spray-painting brick house with wood
trim and we start our preparation work by pressure washing the house the
brick part of the house has a lot of cracks and there is paint that is
chipping off near the edges of the cracks and we are going to remove all
the paint that’s peeling or using the wire brush attached to an angular
grinder to clean up the edges of the cracks and get rid of any loose paint this is a very noisy and dusty task and
earplugs air filter a mask and glasses come in very handy there are a few areas
mostly near the foundation of the house where the grinder will not reach and we
have to use a putty knife to remove any loose paint to fix hairline cracks on a wood trim
we’re using elastomeric patch and we apply it with a brush there are a few
medium-sized cracks in a brick and we’re using latex caulk to fix those we’re
using kalkan gun to squeeze the caulk out of the tube and then using a brush we
spread it evenly now this house has a lot of holes in brick and we are going
to use MH patching compound to fill those holes we apply the compound using
putty knife and then using a wet sponge we’re going to blend it in. the roof
has been recently replaced and there are a few areas on this house that would
require primer. the metal age next to the roof shingles is one of those areas
as well as some of the wood underneath the trim and we’re using Ultra Grip it’s
a general-purpose primer to prime the areas that have never been painted yet
we are going to get rid of any dust and dirt left by scraping the brick using a
broom in a dustpan and we’ll use an air blower for any remaining desk we’re on 12 ish masking paper and green
tape all around the house where the brick meets the concrete to prevent the
concrete from getting overspray and when we spray paint this area will cover the
remaining part of the concrete using tarps this is the work of the house
after we finished with scraping and repairs we used elastomeric patch for all
scraped areas using a mini roller and that will help blend in the areas that
were scraped with the rest of the brick we continued our preparation work
masking all the windows using inch-and-a-half green tape and plastic to mask off the lights we’re using blue
painters tape first this tape is for delicate surfaces and it has made a
little adhesive and when we remove the tape after painting it will not live in a
residual glue we apply the same blue tape first to the surface of the
metal gate before masking it with plastic to the roof shingles near the
trim we apply inch-and-a-half green tape so when we spray paint the inner part of
the trim there will be no spray left on the shingles on the back patio we
covered all the concrete using plastic and then the remaining area including
the pool deck or we cover using tarps after we finished with preparation work
we start scraping in the body of the house when we apply the first coat of
paint we apply it from top to bottom and we’ll have had enough time to dry we go
back and put the second coat applying it in different direction from side to side
applying the second coat in a different direction helps to eliminate any lines
or inconsistencies in a spray pattern left by the first coat using a brush we’re painting the metal
edge of the trim trim fascia and pop outs around the windows and this is the
look of the house after we finished with touch-ups and cleanup
