If there is any peeling — and there usually is somewhere — it's essential to scrape off any loose paint. This doesn't just mean the parts that are already separated from the wood and ready to fall off on their own. Each spot where paint has peeled loose needs to be scraped thoroughly until you can no longer get the sharp corner of a putty knife under any of the surrounding edges of paint. Then, the bare spot needs to be sanded until the paint edges are smooth. Westminster House Painters CO
The other difficult part is getting a painting contractor to show up. While this generalization does not apply to every painter, you can rarely get a paint contractor to show up to look at the house and to later produce a written estimate. It's hardly the fault of the painting contractors; it is a combination of the contractors being smaller operations along with a high demand for their work. Westminster Home Painting
Painters often tint primer close to the color of the top coat, but Wallis thinks that's a recipe for "holidays," or missed spots. Instead, he tints his primer a contrasting color. "If I can see the color coming through, I know I need to apply more paint," he says. On the cottage shown in this story, he chose a gray-blue primer to go under a peach top coat.

Probrush painting helped redo our home; painting multiple rooms, refinishing cabinets in kitchens, helped fix some problems with the grout on our floor, etc. I was very unprepared to get my house redone and they were always patient and helped me through the entire project and their work was beautiful! They went above and beyond, one day drove multiple places all over DFW area just to find all the cabinet finishes we needed! Planning on using them in the future and highly recommend using them!Erin KeifferMay 21, 2019

When selecting a color scheme for the home’s exterior homeowners can choose color options that will correct flaws that they may feel exist with their home and property. Some examples include utilizing two shades of a single color to make a home appear appropriately sized when the home may be too large or too tall. To accomplish this effect individuals will want to place the darker tone on the upper level of the home’s exterior. Smaller windows can appear more proportionately sized by trimming them in a lighter tone of paint. Darker colors make a space or feature appear smaller. The same effect can be obtained for homes positioned further away from a curb. By using lighter tones the home will not feel camouflaged.
This is great guys! Great work! I'm a retired kitchen guy so I know good work when I see it. I love all of it. My wife and I are doing a Farm kitchen right now as well. Your pictures have me thinking about sending in some before and after of ours. Just like you its the time we get to spend together during the project that makes the whole thing worth while. Great work. I cant say it enough! Westminster House Painting
I just found this company by Googling "Painters in Littleton". They were not the cheapest and not the most expensive but we liked what they said they would do with prepping and painting the outside of our house. Our painters Raymondo and Benito were excellent. The paint job is fantastic and they were very responsive to what we wanted and very careful not to get paint on any surface but the house. I would highly recommend. We are very pleased and would definitely use them again. Westminster House Painting CO

My wife and I were reluctant to trust contractors after getting “burnt” in the past. However, what a pleasant surprise we found when we trusted Pro Brush Painting with our recent remodel.

I would highly recommend using Pro Brush for your next renovation. We noe have a trusted friend and contractor for our next home remodel.ronnie morrisonFebruary 15, 2019

While we generally find that the two biggest concerns homeowners have about their home improvement projects are cost and project length, when it comes to home painters it's usually more about the money. Why is this? Simple: Just like anywhere else, Dallas home painters aren't cheap, but they will get the job done a lot faster than you can. For every project HomeAdvisor processes, we gather information on how much the project cost, how long it took, and any comments/advice from the homeowner. What we find, time and time again, is that homeowners find that hiring a home painter is more expensive than they imagined, but in the end, totally worth it.
Just wondering. In the polybutylene story the Ask This Old House trailer is sitting in the driveway of the home in Virginia. Richard is there to emcee but a local company is hired to do the work, so Richard needs no tools. Does someone tow the empty trailer to these distant sites just to use it in the exterior shots? Or, do they haul the lighting and cameras and such cross country in it? Or, do they rent a trailer locally and just temporarily apply an AskTOH wrap for the cameras? Westminster House Painting CO
I was very pleased with the service received from Kind Home Solutions. In late September, Kind Home Solutions painted the exterior of my home. They were professional and punctual in all phases of operations: providing estimates, arranging appointments, brochures, repairs, prep work and painting. The painting crew (JR) did an excellent job and did not scrimp on either paint or caulking, some areas needing multiple coats of paint. The crew completed the job in the estimated amount of time, cleaned up throughout, and hauled away trash.
Last year I bought a house that had the stainless steel micro model installed. The house was surrounded by 80’ tall Maples & Birch. TONS OF LEAVES.Yes, it the micro mesh keeps all leaf and seeds out of the gutter 100%. What the manf and dealers won’t tell you is that you must clean the mesh 2x’s a year to get spring pollen, mold, & fall leaf dust off. Otherwise it will eventually keep EVERYTHING out, including WATER. Major ice problems flowing over the gutters. No it was not the result of ice damming. I removed it all & just deal with the leaves 3x’s each fall.Got ranch home with easy access to the gutters - get the micro mesh. Easier to clean that than clean gunk out of the gutter.hire a young buck to climb a ladder. A whole lot cheaper. Westminster House Painting
You’ll spend between $500 and $3,000 or $1 to $3.50 per square foot to paint concrete. However, expect to pay $2 to $7 per square foot since concrete almost always needs a coat of primer first. Double that price if the concrete requires stripping. Concrete is porous. Sealing it not only helps blend foundations and walls with your home’s aesthetic, but also seals it against water. Repairing or resurfacing concrete costs $300 to $500 for every 100 square feet.
Small random-orbit or pad sanders make this job go faster. (Wallis first covers these boundaries with Synkoloid patching compound so no edge is visible after sanding.) As shown, you want to make sure that there is a feathered, smooth transition from exposed wood to old paint. For areas that might get close scrutiny, you can follow up with a 100- or 120-grit rubdown to erase any scratches. Westminster House Painting
