What brands do you prefer for paint and supplies?
We use Sherwin-Williams and Rodda for paint since both brands have an excellent reputation for quality and color uniformity. We also use Graco 440 sprayers, spray tips, and extensions. We use Honda 6X200, 3200 PSI pressure washers. We also use hand scrapers, power sanders, both oil and latex-based primers, hand-masking tools, Little Giant ladders, extension ladders, and proper PPE whilst spraying. We’re careful to ensure our customers’ homes stay clean and damage-free throughout the entire painting process.
Our Process: Exterior Painting
For most exterior painting projects, the first day starts with pressure washing the building with an environmentally-friendly cleaning solution. Then, we let the house dry for 2-3 days before we begin scraping, sanding, priming and prepping the house for paint. During those one or two days, we will check and replace all of the bad caulking on the building and mask off all windows, doors, concrete, fixtures, or anything that could potentially be affected by accidental spray over.
Finally, we begin painting the house, making sure to back brush all vertical siding. Once we have laid down a clean, even coat, we will remove the masking and paint the trim and accent colors. On our last day, we take care of any touch-ups – and we always do a very thorough clean-up on the job site. We want our customers to be able to get back to their normal routine as quickly as possible.
