How Its Done

 

Interior Painting


We pride ourselves on set up and preparation work on interior jobs.  We believe these aspects are crucial in delivering a superior paint job.

Set Up Work

  • Furniture and other items are moved to the center of the room or out of the way completely.  These items, along with other areas (i.e. cabinets, countertops, etc.). are covered with plastic.  Why?  To protect YOUR belongings and to give us the space required to do a great job.

  • Ceiling and wall fixtures are removed or covered with plastic depending on the job specifications. Why?  To ensure we do a thorough paint job and to protect these fixtures.

  • Floors are completely covered with plastic and drop cloths.  Why? To protect from paint drips or splatters that may occur while we are working.

 Preparation 

  • Any visible holes or cracks in the walls, ceilings & trim are filled with spackle, then sanded smooth and flat.  These areas are then spot primed in order to avoid showing through the paint.

  • Gaps along any trim are filled with caulking to improve appearance.

  • Visible stains like water stains are spot primed.

Painting

  • The painting will be done by experienced professionals who will apply the paint with a brush, roller, or sprayer depending on the surface.

  • High quality paints are used.

  • There will be clean, straight cut lines between walls, ceilings, and trim.

  • Tools or ladders left on the job site will be neatly organized and out of the way for multiple day jobs.

Clean Up

  • Furniture, ceiling, and wall fixtures are uncovered and put back into their proper places.

  • Carpets and floors are cleaned using a shop vacuum.

  • Trash and garbage are removed from the site.

Inspection

  • The crew does a walk around and touch ups are done as needed.

  • The foreman and customer do one final walk through.

  • Any leftover paint is sealed, labeled and left for the customer.

 

 

Exterior Painting


You get the best with our power washing & preparation work.  This is what enables us to deliver a superior paint job.

Power washing

  • All surfaces to be painted are power washed or hand cleaned prior to the start of every job. Why? Cleaning removes any flaking paint, dirt, mildew, mold, and/or acid rain build-up on the surface.  A clean, solid substrate promotes good adhesion of the paint or stain and gives longevity to the work.

Preparation

  • Any loose or pealing paint that remains after power washing is hand scraped to ensure a stable, solid surface for the new products. 

  • Any bare areas of wood or metal are spot-primed with the appropriate primer to allow for proper adhesion of the finish coats.  Any areas where tannin oils have bled through will be spot-primed with oil primer to prevent further unsightly bleed-through.

Painting

  • Landscaping, driveways, etc., are covered with drop cloths to protect from drips, splatters, and over spray.  Areas adjacent to where we are painting will be protected with masking paper, masking plastic, and/or spray shields.

  • Painting will be done by experienced professionals, who will apply the paint with a brush, roller, or sprayer depending on the surface and the customer's desire.

  • High quality paints are used.

  • Tools or ladders left at the job are neatly organized and moved out of the way for multiple day jobs. 

Clean Up

  • Drop cloths are removed from the landscaping.

  • Old paints chips on the ground are removed using a shop vacuum.

  • Garbage and trash are removed from the property.

Inspection

  • Crew members do a final walk-around and touch up any areas as needed.

  • The foreman and customer do one final walk through.

  • Leftover paint is sealed, labeled, and left for the customer.
