REGULARLY CHECK FOR DEFECTS

If you also want to maintain the exterior painting yourself, the main thing is that you regularly walk around your house to determine and remedy the defects. You can often see peeling of the paint layer and cracks in the wood. If you see the paint peeling off, it is best to remove it with a hair dryer and a paint scraper. Read the article about burning off paint here. Always make sure that your paint scraper is sharp. If you see small irregularities in your woodwork, you must putty this. Before you start filling up, you must first apply a primer. This is for the adhesion of the filler. If large holes or cracks are found, you must apply a 2-component filler .

WORKING METHOD AND PROCEDURE

If you have seen large cracks or large holes, you should use a 2-component filler.

Especially when you notice wood rot, a 2-component filler is a godsend. You then have to perform a wood rot repair. There are various products on the market for this. The most famous where is other dryflex. Especially the dryflex 4. Dryflex has a fast processing time and can be painted over after 4 hours.

A HARDER AND A PUMP

You mix these together and you can then apply it on the spot. Make sure you have 2 putty knives on hand. A wide putty knife that is wider than the hole and a narrow putty knife for filling. The first putty knife serves as a kind of spatula and later to smooth it out tightly. When you have applied the 2-component filler, you wait four hours and then you can degrease and sand it and then finish it. You will then enjoy and enjoy your painting for a long time.

CRACKS IN CORNER JOINTS

You have to close this as soon as possible otherwise you will get wood rot. It is then best to scratch out the corners in a V-shape with a sharp paint scraper. Then fill these corners with an acrylic sealant. This can be painted over. If you repeat this inspection every year, you will see that your woodwork remains in top condition.
