Residential Painting Expertise
Exterior Work: We specialize in large or unique repainting projects. From historic homes with a high level of detail to less complicated trim and /or siding repaints. We have become experts in the use of spray equipment to efficiently provide you with a better quality job than is available with standard brush and roller techniques. The following steps describe how we produce these long lasting paint jobs:
Step 1: Your exterior paint is only as good as what's under it. Only after adopting power washing and chlorine treatment as standard practice prior to painting, were we able to offer our 3 year guarantee. Our cleaning process accomplishes the following:
Step 2: We wait at least one week after power washing before continuing preparation by scraping of remaining loose paint. This drying time ensures the exterior surfaces are dry enough to ensure optimum primer adhesion.
Step 3: There are two ways we approach priming. "Spot Priming" refers to priming only bare areas where wood substrate is exposed. Areas where paint has remained after power washing and scraping will not be primed. Often, it is not necessary to prime sound painted surfaces as they will provide a solid base for the new top coat, just as the primer would. In situations where there is excessive exposed wood, or some other paint related problems, a full coat of primer will be applied. These details will be explained to you during our initial inspection if you call us for a quote.
Step 4: Caulking is applied to all gaps and cracks to enhance appearance and prevent water infiltration, which is the most common cause of exterior paint failure.
Step 5: The desired number of top coats are applied to the siding, then the trim
Step 6: Final cleanup is carried out to ensure the site is as clean as it was when we arrived.
Step 7: Our job site manager will inspect your home with you and address any touchups discovered.
Interior Work: There are many steps involved in producing a high quality interior paint job and we understand all of them are important.
Step 1: All floors and furniture are covered for protection from dust and debris
Step 2: Drywall defects (cracks, screw pops, holes)
are identified and repaired
Step 3: All surfaces are scuff sanded to reduce roller stipple and old brush marks which can show through the new paint.
Step 4: Gaps and cracks are sealed with high grade siliconized caulking to enhance appearance.
Step 5: Ceilings are painted, followed by trim, then walls
Exterior washing: Is your vinyl siding looking dreary? Is moss growing on your roof? Have your eaves troughs turned black from mildew? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, our professional exterior cleaning crew can help you. Mildew and other micro organisms must be killed prior to removal, otherwise remnants of the organism will be left behind and they will grow back faster than ever. We use Chlorine and TSP to kill and remove all forms of dirt and grime. Roof moss is easily removed with these same cleaning products. without damaging asphalt shingles.
