Pressure-Washing

Pressure washing is the best way to clean painted surfaces and remove dust, dirt, chalky oxidation, and loose paint. It also helps reveal bad/rotten wood hiding under old paint.

Scrape & Hand Sand, Nail Down, Oil Primer and Sealant

Surface prep is important to a long-lasting, high quality paint job. We scrape loose and peeling paint. Then we lightly sand the surface, so the new paint can bond better. Loose boards are secured with new nails and screws where necessary. We apply exterior primers to help the paint bond to the surface, and to block stains from rising to the surface of the new paint. Sealant/caulking is applied to seams and joints where wood meets wood or brick. We reseal existing caulked joints.

Masking

We protect your brick, windows, shingles, pool, landscape, light fixtures, etc.

Apply Full-Strength Paint

After all the prep is done, we apply the paint. Some areas are brushed, some rolled, some sprayed, but we always apply the paint full-strength. We spray the paint on where practical because it leaves a much nicer finish that brushing and we can lay the paint on much heavier than with brush and roll. We only use top shelf quality paints for all projects.

Cleanup

We make it our priority to keep the job site clean while working and at the end of each day. Even though the painting may be done, our work is not complete until we removal all trash from the site. We want to leave your property just as clean as we found it.

Final Walk-through with Customer

Once the painting and cleanup is complete, we walk-through with the homeowner for any additional touchups needed. We want you to be 100% satisfied.
