Although painting a house may seem like a straightforward task, it can be a messy process. For this reason, we put tarps down to protect your space from splatter and other messes. Our ultimate goal is to leave the job site as clean as we found it. Once the site is protected, we take a look at our canvas to see if there is anything that needs to be done before we paint. After all, no amount of paint can hide a hole in the drywall, so we'll fill any holes. Once the area is primed, we'll paint your walls and ceilings with two top-coats. While we typically use top-of-the-line paint and enamel, we will use any paint that you prefer. We also stain baseboard casings, window trips, and doors. If you want a custom design or logo on the wall, we can recommend an artist.
Once we've taken care of the interior, you may start thinking your exterior could need some work as well. After all, you want the outside to look as nice as the interior. Maybe all you want is for the exterior to be painted. Either way, we're happy to oblige.
The most important part of painting is the preparation process. That's why we take the time to sand and scrape all the dry wood with primer. Afterwards, we'll nail set everything and then sand and caulk any areas that are peeling. Once that is done, we pressure wash the house and take steps to protect the areas that shouldn't be painted with plastic. This is to prevent any water from traveling to where it doesn't belong. We also treat any peeling or failing area with Peel Bond Primer.
Our Staining Process
After prepping, we'll use water-based stain on houses where oil-based stains were used originally. Using water-based stain allows you to double the life of your paint, so you'll be able to get 5 to 7 years out of it. Our preferred stain product is called ARBORCOAT, which is available through Benjamin Moore. We then use two coats of high-end exterior paint or stain.
We work hard to ensure we do the job right the first time so that we don't have to return to fix a problem. So far, we've been successful in this. However, we do carry a limited lifetime warranty so you can be assured that if something ever fails and it's our fault, we will take care of it.
