Painting the exterior is an important part of properly maintaining a home. Paint serves as a first line of defense against the elements by creating a barrier to the sun, wind, rain, insects and other destructive effects. Painting is also a simple and comparatively inexpensive means of dramatically changing or updating the look of a home and enhances the curb.
The three most important things for any quality exterior finish are preparation, preparation and preparation. Although the materials used are also extremely important, even the best paint will not last if the surface is not properly prepared. Because of this, we typically spend 2 to 3 times the number of hours preparing the home or building before we ever begin to paint.
To ensure that our clients always receive the quality and customer service they expect from us, we follow a step-by-step process on every project that includes the following items:
Although one, if not the, most important parts of a home, the roof is often the most neglected part; yet keeping it properly maintained can add years to its functional life. Cleaning and painting a tile or tin roof can not only extend its life, but dramatically change the look of a home. Often when a new color scheme is selected for the exterior, the color of the roof may not be complementary. Rather than be limited to colors that will work well with the existing color of the roof or avoid the need to replace the roof, we can simply repaint it.
First, we treat the roof to kill any mildew or fungus. This means spraying a cleaning solution onto the surfaces with a low-pressure sprayer when the surface is dry and warm. Then we pressure wash the entire roof, including the drip edge and fascia. If gutters are attached, we also wash them out.
After the roof has been given sufficient time to dry out, we spray a minimum of two coats of Behr paint specifically designed for roofs. We only use Behr Paints because they have the highest U.V. protection available. We also offer an additional “Clear Coat Service” which includes an supplemental coat of a specialized clear sealer that will help provide a layer of additional protection and even further extend the life of the roof coating.
We paint all types of roofs, except for asphalt shingles, including tin, tile, wood, etc…
Has your pool deck, sidewalk or patio become stained, pitted, cracked or chipped over time? We offer many resurfacing alternatives to transform the appearance of your outdoor living areas. Rather than incurring the cost and disruption of breaking up and removing old surfaces, we can often resurface and renovate your existing deck for a fraction of the cost.
