How to Paint Dormers on a Steep Roof?

Painting on a how to paint dormers on a two story steep roof is no easy task? There are multiple things you need to do. Most importantly, safety is the biggest concern here. If you somehow fall off the roof that you can get hurt pretty bad.

So, here what you need to do-

Step 1: Climb up the ladder
Before you climb up the ladder, put on some protective gloves. It can be either latex or rubber gloves, doesn’t really matter actually. 

Then, take a one-quarter cup of TSP and mix it with one-gallon slightly warm water. After that, put the ladder in such a way it reaches to the dormer windows. 

Next, climb up the ladder slowly and carefully. You have to be extra careful because you’ll have the bucket in your other hand. 

Step 2: Clean the dormer windows 
First, you have to grab a sponge and dip it in the mixture you just made. Then, start rubbing it against the windows. 

After you’re done with the windows, move on to the sides where you plan to paint. Make sure you take your time to wash the area.

However, don’t rush it considering you’re a lot higher from the ground. One misstep can wreck it all.

Now, rinse the entire area with your garden hose. Remember that you have to climb down to get the hose. So, do it carefully. 

Finally, give the dormer windows some time to dry off properly.

Step 3: Sand the area you plan to paint
Sanding is quite necessary if you plan to repaint an area. Otherwise, the existing paint won’t come off. Most importantly, the paint won’t hold tightly. After a few months, it’ll come off like stickers.  

That’s why you should sand the entire area with 180-grit sandpaper. Make sure you rub every inch of the area you want to paint. 

Finally, take a piece of soft clean cloth and remove all the dust from the area. 

Step 4: Mark the area with tape
Unless you mark the area with tape, you’ll paint dripping all over the glass. So, grab some masking tape and put it around the glass panel.

Step 5: Apply primer
Now, take a trim brush and dip it with a latex primer. You see, without the primer, the paint won’t hold on for too long. So, if you want a perfect finish, using a primer is a must. 

Finally, allow the primer to dry for at least an hour or two. 

Step 6: Apply paint
In order to paint it efficiently, you’ll need a 3-inch nylon paintbrush. After you’ve bought it, dip it in a bucket of acrylic latex paint and start applying on the area. 

After waiting for an hour or two, apply a second coat. 

Now, you can apply another color of paint if you want some variety(most people do). The process is the same as before. 

Finally, you can take off the masking tape. In fact, you should remember to take off the masking tape before the paint dries.
