Prime house

There are two parts to the spraying process - priming and painting. Using a FLEXiO® sprayer, which draws off a 5 gallon bucket of paint, spray the bare wood surfaces with primer to seal them from the elements. Then spray the house with a latex exterior paint.

The FLEXiO® is lightweight and easy to maneuver, especially from a ladder and for hard-to-reach places.

Let all your guests take turns trying the sprayer.

Time to party!

Hard work will create a hungry crowd. Have plenty of icy drinks on hand and easy make-ahead foods that are delicious and can be replenished in a jiff. Keep the theme by using red, white and blue dishes.
