Why can't I just buy some paint and take care of my project on my own?
You can. But the difference between a professional job and an amateur one is night and day. Things like spills, the wrong type of paint, and working off of high ladders all make painting more of a difficult job than most people realize. If you want to try it on your own, there's no reason why you can't. But to get a better result, save time, and avoid stress, we're here to help.
Is your estimate exact?
Usually our estimates are dead-on the final price of the project. There are some things that can change this, of course, and things like unforeseen problems, a homeowner changing the color mid-way through the job, and more could influence the estimate. If such an issue arises we'll discuss it with you fully before continuing the job.
My paint is chipped and falling off. Will I have to replace the siding?
It's possible. If you've lost a significant amount of paint for an extended period of time, you may have rot in the boards. This could require replacement. In most cases, we can simply scrape away the flaked paint, sand the boards slightly, and reapply new paint to return your home to its former glory. Each job is different, however.
My deck is slick, slimy, and ugly. Can you help?
Absolutely. This is a sign of mold growth on the deck, or that the stain you've applied has worn off. Pressure treated wood is notorious for being slippery when wet, as is mold. We'll use a pressure washer with a cleaning solution to clean off your deck, and then reapply quality stain to it. In the end it will be as good as new.
I started painting my home and realized it was too much for me. Can you finish for me?
Of course we can. But remember that if you've waited for too long, there's a good chance you'll need new paint and for us to start over from the beginning. This is because the sun will quickly fade the color you've applied to your home and if we simply begin where you left off, you'll run the risk of mismatched colors. This is a big reason that starting with the pros is a better bet - we end up finishing a lot of half-painted homes each year, and often have to start over from scratch.
I want to restain my hardwood floors with a different color but my friend said it was impossible. Is it?
It's possible to move from a light stain to a darker one, though the resulting color won't usually match exactly. In most cases, sanding floors down to bare wood is the only way to do this. It's challenging and time-consuming, but not impossible.
