Walls and Ceilings:
Interior painting involves properly covering floors and furniture first. We then repair the caulking at window and door trim. Nail holes are filled will paintable putty. We also provide drywall repair service to fix the holes or cracks in your walls before repainting. Finally we apply the finish coats of paint. In the Flagstaff area, many customers prefer a 'satin' or 'egshel' low sheen latex paint on the walls. These finishes are more durable and washable than flat paint. However, flat paint will hide the most imperfections on the wall surface and is easiest to touch-up.
Interior Trim and Door Painting:
Trim and doors are best painted with a high quality acrylic enamel. Acrylic paints have better color retention and don't yellow like oil-based / alkyd paints. Modern acrylic enamels also dry hard and have excellent adhesion. We prefer Sherwin-Williams brand 'Pro-Classic' enamel paint for all interior trim painting. It is important to understand that not all water-borne semi-gloss finishes are actually enamels. While it is possible to run down to the local home center and buy a low cost semi-gloss latex paint, such products will fail to perform like a true acrylic enamel.
Interior trim that is stained will often benefit from a fresh coat of polyurethane. For kitchen cabinets, we prefer to prepare the surfaces with a tsp substitute which helps to remove grease and grime while leaving the surface ready for a new coat of varnish.
For exterior repainting, we pressure wash first and then scrape off any remaining loose paint. After that we apply primer to any exposed wood. Next, we caulk extensively around doors, windows and trim to help your home become more energy efficient. Finally we apply the top coats of paint, protecting areas by properly masking and covering as needed.
Ask about our concrete sealing services. Sealing your driveways, sidewalks and patios will help them to last longer. This is especially important for exposed aggregate surfaces.
We recommend and use Sherwin-Williams brand paints.
This house with T-111 siding required several gallons of XIM Peel-Bond primer to restore the condition of the siding, before the top-coats of Sherwin-Williams SuperPaint were applied. We also installed new Visions 3000 windows and replaced all the window trim, as well as replacing several pieces of rotted trim. We stained the Decks with Sherwin-Williams DeckScapes solid color latex deck stain.
We have the right equipment and great personnel to get the job done right!
Airless paint spraying provides
an even coat with great coverage.
It is important to spray top to bottom on surfaces such as this, to avoid lap marks.
Exterior stain is best applied by brush. Our competition will often apply the stain by airless sprayer, but such a method often results in irreversible lap marks being visible for years to come. It cost more for us to apply the stain by brush, but it is the right way!
The right equipment makes our paint jobs better. In the picture above, our crew is replacing two cedar boards damaged by woodpeckers before restaining this home in Locket Ranches.
This garage door in Flagstaff Ranch neighborhood was first pressured washed and then we stained it by hand with Semi-Transparent oil based stain.
