How do I fix a large drywall hole?
If you want to go the DIY route, then a fix can be made using a mesh patch, joint compound, and a fresh coat of paint. Bear in mind that it is a difficult job to get right the first time and hiring a professional painter may be a better option. We've repaired countless drywall holes and can complete the job perfectly with more advanced techniques at a minimal cost.How do I touch up a painted surface after the job is done?
With every job we do, any leftover paint is given to the customer for this exact reason. Instead of needing to make a perfect color match, you'll have the exact same paint we used for touch-ups and quick fixes. If it's a more serious problem, we are certainly available for follow-up services.How often should my exterior be painted?
In New England, average exterior paint jobs last roughly 4-6 years. At the same time, there are factors like sun exposure or high humidity that can alter that time but when snow piles up against your house, let’s just say, all bets are off! Even if you feel that the paint still looks good, it may be a good idea to give us a call for a professional analysis to catch any small problems or before your paint film becomes to degraded to simply repaint.My house and deck needs repainting, but the wood is beginning to rot. What should I do?
In the case of rotted wood, the ideal solution is to replace it first and then do the painting job. We are capable of providing these services and we use on-staff carpenters. Without replacing rotted wood, a new paint job could be a waste of money as it will only be a temporary fix.How do you arrive at a painting estimate and why are some prices all over the place from high too low?
The cost of a job is determined by the level of thoroughness, attention to detail, and quality desired. For example, it costs more to employ expert craftspeople who properly prepare a surface for painting and protect surrounding non paint areas than to give a “quick once over" by a not so experienced painter. Because each job is different we don’t use unit pricing but determine factors like type of surface prep and level of difficulty, is there any lead or hazardous material that would be disturbed, how many colors, the terrain surrounding a structure, is any special equipment needed?
