Thinking to do some exterior painting but I have some questions I would like to ask some appropriate procedures and preparation starting from scratch
I would like to go for Dulux brand, but not sure what type one to go for and the order? such as primer?
And I assume the first step is water pressure cleaning?
The coloru price is still undecided, but will most likely to use a lighter colour as I do not want to attract the heat nor having to paint again after a few years later if use the darker tone since it is likely to see the cracks and peel
How many coats for exterior? Leave for how many days before the 2nd coat?
Just to let you know, the whole house is roughly 18m x 10m and height is 4m that is required for painting.
There are 9 timber windows I need to paint also
So how do I calculate how many tin of paint I need as well?
Your feedback and advise would be very much appreciate for any useful starting point
PS: After that, then I will want to start to hire someone to do the deck in my backyard, if so, is this the right order I should do ? i.e. do the painting first and then the deck at last?
Cheers and thanks once again
