Exterior Painting

Painting and protecting the exterior of your home is one of the most important investments of your lifetime, second only to the actual purchase of your home. This decision should not be taken lightly and many factors should be involved in the decision making process. Here are a few key points we believe are very important.
There are many solid and quality painters our there so we are not here to tell you what other painters can or can’t do. We would like to explain the procedures we follow and explain their importance and allow you to make an educated decision on how to protect your home and check book at the same time.

Just like any project, the key in exterior painting is preparation and attention to detail. No detail is too small or insignificant to be ignored and no corners can be cut.
Our process starts with a detailed examination of the homes exterior to determine if there is any wood rot or damaged areas in need of repair. If the home is not in need of any such repair, then we start with the second step which is to power wash all exterior surfaces with an environmentally friendly cleaner to remove dirt and debris and basically clean and wash the exterior. Having a clean dirt free surface is extremely important in this process. We then allow the home to dry completely prior to the next step. We follow up with a full scraping of all loose paint around home and especially on trim and then follow up with a sanding step if needed. While in this process, we also examine the caulking around home in such areas as around trim, seams, joints, and around windows and doors. If the caulking is in bad shape, rather than caulking over it, we remove the old caulking, clean the surface, prime, and re-caulk using premium caulk. After scraping all needed areas, we then price all bare surfaces and other areas as needed. If home is in bad peeling condition, after scraping and sanding the surface, we coat the entire house with a bonding primer to ensure long lasting protection against future peel. Once primer has cured on the surface, we begin the painting process using only the premium paints from the top manufacturers.
We offer many coating options such as multi tone on the front side such as a different color for body, trim, and front door. If multi tones are desired around the remaining sides, please discuss that with your consultant and it will be taken care of.

Prior to painting, we offer up to three color sample combinations so that you can see the colors you have chosen sampled on your home and get to see it in real light instead of on a small inch square. This way, you can be sure you will be extremely satisfied with the final result once finished. We also include garage doors, gutters, and front door unless requested otherwise.
