The facade is the face of the building. His appearance speaks of the taste, orderliness, and consistency of the owner. The quality of the furnishings affects the energy efficiency of the house. The paint is carried out to make it look beautiful, its surface was not destroyed by the impact of natural factors and industrial emissions of enterprises. This is one of the cheapest and most effective ways of protecting buildings.
You can paint the facade of the house yourself. But often in the process, the owners face the fact that the paint lay unevenly, the individual places are not stained. Handling walls from the stairs is uncomfortable. It is necessary to build forests, to move on them with a brush or a roller, risking to fall down.
It is easier to use the services of specialists. They have experience and special equipment (paint spray, compressor, stairs or wood), so they will paint quickly and qualitatively. In difficult cases the walls can be painted by industrial climbers. They have permission to perform work at height, regularly undergo retraining at state centers.
Often, before painting the building, it must be repaired. It can be cosmetic, medium-sized or even capital-intensive. Cosmetic repair requires cleaning and cleaning, partial restoration of surfaces. Here you can do without the construction of scaffolding.
Average repair requires large area restoration, hydrophobicity of sections or walls completely. Expenses on plaster are rising, and for all repairs. Construction of scaffolding and the use of special equipment will be required.
How to Paint Your House's Exterior
A fresh coat of paint is the most inexpensive way to freshen up and protect your home's exterior.

The type of paint you'll use depends on the kind of surface to be painted - wood, aluminum, vinyl, stucco or masonry - and the type of finish you want. Exterior paint is specifically formulated to provide:
- Color and gloss retention
- Flexibility to withstand expansion and contraction due to weather
- Mildew resistance
Primer - the first step toward a lasting finish. To get a great-looking finish coat and the beautiful, long-lasting results you expect, be sure to properly apply primer to the surfaces you plan to paint.

Attain the truest paint color in the fewest coats
In general, the only time a primer is not needed is if you're re-painting a surface that's in good condition.
Before you paint your entire house, it's a good idea to test the paint you plan to use. Prepare, prime (if necessary) and paint an inconspicuous spot. Wait the appropriate drying time as specified on the label, then look for any adhesion or compatibility problems before proceeding with a full-scale application.
Use a paint scraper, wire brush, sandpaper or power washer to remove all surface contamination, such as oil, grease, loose paint, dirt, foreign matter, rust, mold, mildew or mortar efflorescence. Make sure that cracks and imperfections are patched or caulked.
