Luminous Painting takes pride in the preparation of your home before we start any painting project. Our prep-work includes pressure washing with a 2500 psi power washer to clean the surfaces before painting starts. If the foundation is being painted we will move back any rock, dirt, or mulch. We will caulk vertical seams in fascia and joints, use Elastoplast patching compound in major cracks and caulk along the tops of windows and doors to prevent water damage. We also scrape loose or failing paint, and then prime any bare wood to ensure a proper seal and surface for the top coat to adhere.
