Painting

Many homeowners and business owners lack the time or eye for color needed to paint the rooms in their home. After time, old paint jobs become dull, fade or even chip or peel away. 


Exterior Painting

Homes and businesses with vinyl siding rarely need exterior painting but if the trim on the peak of the building or around the windows is not covered with vinyl siding, painting becomes an issue. Unprotected wood can rot or crack due to weather extremes and exterior paint is the only way to protect this trim. Few home or business owners have ladders high enough to reach these areas. Others may be scared of heights or lack the time needed to keep up with painting. This is where we comes in.

Once you accept our estimate, we will schedule a time for the painting project. Weather plays a huge part in scheduling because the weather must be clear, not too humid and allow enough time for the paint to dry before any rain. Weather can make our scheduling very difficult and often weekend hours are required to keep up with a packed work calendar.

Our typical painting job involves removal of any old paint, sealing up gaps with exterior latex/paintable caulk, and then the actual job of painting. we clean up any drips or splatters, we use our own tools including ladders, paint buckets, paint brushes, rollers, paint thinners and is usually responsible for ordering the paint. Once paint is ready, we ensure the color is correct, before we start any painting.

Interior Painting 

We work with our clients to help them plan their room colors, decide how much paint is necessary, choose a suitable type of paint, and then prepare and paint a room or rooms within a home or business. 

Since there are many different types of paint finishes, such as latex, semi-gloss, glossy, flat, your we will help you determine which paint is best suited to the area you are having painted. For example, flat paint should never be used in a bathroom because flat paint attracts mildew growth.

A typical interior painting job begins with painting tarps being placed over the flooring, painting tape being installed around window or door trim, and furniture being covered or moved to another room. Interior painting jobs generally begin with a fresh coat of paint for the ceiling and then work downwards. Holes or dents are filled with caulk and sanded smooth and then a layer of primer is painted onto the wall. Once the primer dries, the first layer of paint is added. This dries and then a second coat is applied. Providing primer is used first, a third layer should be unnecessary.
