Exterior House Painting

Exterior painting is extremely important to the protection of your home’s building materials. Sun, wind, rain, snow, and moisture all wreak havoc on the siding and trim of your home. A properly prepared and painted home will withstand the elements while protecting it for years to come.

Estimates:
  • We come to your home or business for a free estimate at a convenient time for you.
  • A walk-around is done noting any problem areas
  • During the walk-around, a moisture meter is used to check the moisture level of the substrate. Moisture levels are important to the adhesion of paint/stain
  • A thorough written estimate is then formed based on what needs to be done. Our written proposals are usually 12-18 pages long. This ensures all aspects of the project are included and in writing
