Larger projects, estates, and commercial buildings may require special lift access to expedite painting, especially when heights make ladder access too dangerous. Our employees are fully trained in lift operation and will never disturb any landscaping or structural features around your home.

On most homes, traditional ladder access and staging allow us to complete the painting project efficiently. We always use drop cloths over roof sections and shrubbery, leaving your home as clean as it was when we started.

Our Exterior Paint preparation includes:

  • We will thoroughly clean all surfaces to remove dirt and mildew before painting.
  • We will remove all loose paint, caulking, and glazing.
  • We use acrylic latex caulk, which has a manufacturer's warranty of at least 40 years, to coat and siliconize all gapped or failed caulking. If necessary, the glazing will also be replaced.
  • When doing the job, we cover driveways, walkways, and shrubbery- all areas for preparation or painting.
  • We will spot-prime bare wood where loose paint has been removed before any finish is applied unless Sherwin Williams Duration, which is self-priming, is specified.
  • We sand and check woodwork for imperfections, which, if large enough, will be sealed with wood filler. Then, the woodwork is sanded and primed before any finish is applied.
  • We generally remove vertical drainpipes (downspouts) but don't remove horizontal gutter systems. The gutters themselves can be painted.
  • We will clean work areas to your satisfaction when work is completed.
  • We guarantee your satisfaction with all of our two-coat work.
