Interior Painting

Our Interior Painting process includes the following:

Area Prep: We will move all furniture in order to provide ample work space. If necessary we will cover furniture with plastic.

Floor Protection: We take all necessary precautions to protect your flooring including using rosin paper, plastic or drop clothes. 

Wall Repair: Standard procedure is to fill nail holes and repair minor sheetrock imperfections as part of the cost of the work. 

Wallpaper Removal: We can either remove wallpaper prior to painting or we can paint over it. Consult with your estimator for the best solution in your home. 

Paint/ Sheen/ Color: Standard procedure is to apply one coat of paint when the existing color is being used, two coats if the color differs. 


Exterior Painting

Our Exterior Painting Process includes the following:

Pressure Washing: To provide a clean base to paint over we pressure wash all areas to be painted. To combat mildew accumulation TSP or a bleach/water solution may be used. 

Water Intrusion: An important step to maintaining your home is preventing water from intruding. We fill all surface cracks and nail holes as well as removing loose or cracked glazing from windows and replacing it with a new glazing compound. 

Sanding & Priming: We scrape and sand all loose and flaking paint before we spot prime all bare and weathered areas. 

Minor Wood Repair: At an additional cost we can repair wood rot, replace siding, windows, doors and decks.
