How Do You Protect the Glass While Painting Windows and Doors?

As a professional painting company here in the Bay Area, we work very hard to deliver a truly high-end finished product. We do this through continually training our team, staying on the cutting-edge of best practices, and by always using just the right products and techniques for specific applications.

As an example of this, one of our craftsmen recently took a few fantastic photos while spraying a new finish on windows and doors for a client in Piedmont. We thought you might be interested in a behind-the-scenes look at exactly how this was done.

Keeping Glass Clean While Exterior Painting

A paint sprayer in the hands of a skilled craftsman is a powerful tool. It allows for beautiful, silky smooth finishes applied in a very short amount of time. Brushwork is certainly not a dying art, but sprayers are a go-to tool for many situations.

The question naturally becomes, how do you spray a finish around glass without overspray?

The key is to use liquid mask. As you can see in the pictures below, the liquid mask is applied directly to the glass. It acts as an effective barrier, allowing us to confidently spray the new paint right over it. When the job is complete, we simply remove the liquid mask, clean the glass, and make any touch-ups as needed.




Just in case you’re interested, the paint we used for this project is Sherwin-Williams Resilience Exterior. This is a durable, moisture-resistant product that is ideal for the needs of this Piedmont home.
