A healthy exterior surface doesn’t begin and end with paint. That might sound strange for a painting company to say, but it’s true!
Just like your home sits on a foundation that must be strong and sound in order to support the structure, your paint sits on an equally important foundation. If the wood underneath is compromised by damage or rot, the best paint in the world is doomed to fail.
Skillful Carpentry Is an Essential Part of the Painting Process
It may take an extra investment of time and resources, but ensuring that your home’s surfaces are truly ready for paint offers a massive return. This is why we can offer a 10-year warranty on exterior painting - we know the enduring value of taking the time to do it right.
This is never more true than when we encounter wood rot. Even a seemingly small impacted area can quickly spread as the fungus moves on to surrounding, healthy wood fibers. Unfortunately, many painting companies are willing to cut costs by skipping or minimizing these repairs, applying a coat of paint that will look fine for maybe a year or two, but will inevitably (and prematurely!) fail.
In fact, we have dedicated this article to the topic of what to ask after you receive a painting estimate. Our hope is that we can educate homeowners like you in a way that helps protect you from wasting your hard-earned money on an inadequate, but enticingly inexpensive, paint job.
