In order to submit an complete proposal to you, we start off with a thorough inspection. Other companies may just submit a base line quote to get your contract and then hit you with loads of a lot more required repairs later. Or, worse yet, just cover up damage, such as rotten wood,  that really does need to be replaced. The result is often runaway expenses that were in no way budgeted or a paint job that will have to be redone at a greater expense in a short time. We believe that giving you more information helps you make a better, more informed decision about your project.  Although we cannot foresee everything once we analyse your project, we do our best to include what we can see with a good inspection. Often times, rotten wood is hidden behind seemingly okay paint. The rot is revealed when we power-wash painting in Dallas.

Exterior primers serve two purposes. The first is to help the paint bond to the surface, and the second is to block stains from rising to the surface of the new paint. Special primers, normally oil-based, are applied to bare wood, rust, bare galvanized metal, and water stains.  Paint in decent condition does not normally need to be primed as new water-based paint bonds well to old water-based paint. Watch out for companies who want to sell you a complete primer coat. Although this is sometimes recommended, be sure that's actually what you need before you agree. Sealant, often referred to as caulking, is applied to seams and joints where wood meets wood or brick. We reseal existing caulked joints. Some joints, such as the freeze board below the eaves, are generally not caulked. We use top quality sealants, not cheap latex caulks.

Although masking it not difficult to do, this is a step many companies too often skip. Sadly, the result is a mess that is very difficult to clean up. We protect your brick, windows, shingles, pool, landscape, light fixtures, etc. After all the preparation is done, we apply the paint which it like the icing on the cake. Some areas are brushed, some rolled, some sprayed, but we always apply the paint full-strength and do not try to stretch and save money by adding water. We spray the pain on where practical since 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-quality, proven paints from major manufacturers such as Kelly Moore, Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore, etc.
