We always back brush/back roll the first coat of paint! This process is recommended by siding manufacturers, most local paint companies and AAA Action Painting.
Why do we spend the extra time to take this important step?
- Interior and Exterior paint jobs last longer
- Paint or stain fills in splits and fractures in wood
- Finished product looks better
- Interior and Exterior paint protects and insulates better
Most painting contractors in Boise, Nampa, Meridian and the Treasure Valley do not back brush/back roll, so their bids may be less expensive. The fact is that this extra step is labor-intensive and costs more, so they do not include it in their bids.
Listen to what your paint contractors are going to do for you. If it is not on your bid, you will not be receiving this very important extra process. Ensure you know what kind of paint job you think you are purchasing!
