Like the proverbial iceberg, there’s more to an exterior coating job than meets the eye. Choosing the right materials is crucial to a successful project, but so is the prep work. Neglecting it can make the process longer and more complex than it needs to be.
Mid South Coatings is the only New Orleans home improvement contractor that uses the advanced TEX-COTE® COOLWALL® Coating System to protect your home and reduce energy costs. Let us walk you through three prep steps for this job:
Figure Out the Square Footage of the Area for Coating
How big is the surface? Are there any damaged areas? These details will let you know what to expect, in terms of time and complexity. At the start of your project, the Mid South Coatings team will inspect your home’s exterior in detail, to ensure that the surfaces are smooth and seamless enough for coating.
