Choosing the right color
Choosing the right color of paint can be a challenge. With all the choices, it's hard to even know where to start. We have gathered some of the best painting tips over the years and are here to help you decide. When picking out your paint, it's not just about matching the furniture or curtains, but how the colors make you feel. Our preparation process allows you to see the process in detail. Pricing for paint varies between amount of prep and material per job. A basic room obviously involves painting walls, ceiling, trim, windows, closets and doors. Pricing is per room and starts at $100.00 per room.
Exterior re-paint costs vary depending on the square footage and preparation time. The materials used vary on the structure and these things must be taken into consideration. Most projects start at around $1500.00. Interior painting prices also depend on squar footage of the room. Most projects start around $200 per room.
preparation Process for interior painting
When painting inside the interior of your home you have many facets of prep. This process can be very messy and inconvenient to a homeowner and their family. That is why we put a lot of effort not only into preparation for the finished products sake, but keeping things clean as possible during this process for the homeowners comfort.

Preparation Process For Exterior Painting
Unlike Interior painting, working with the exterior of the house presents many unforeseen challenges. Gutters clog. Rain and weather create mildew or even rot. Insects make nests and deteriorate wood. Especially in the south, we have many critters and the humidity causes siding and caulk to expand and contract throughout the changing seasons. The paint can be caked or cracked from years of wear. For some people, a simple new look is all that is needed. Investing in the exterior face can be a great way to improve your home.
Preparing the exterior of a house can take some time. Often, the wear and tear of time can leave surfaces rough or cracked. Our painters first need to inspect the outer perimeter for extreme cases. If there are missing planks of broken bricks, you will have to repair these major areas before the painting process can begin. Once that is done, a general clearing of debris will begin. Wood splinters must be sanded, spider-webs or other foreign matter must be removed and the exterior completely cleaned before moving forward. The painters will then caulk and fill-in those places that can be amended. This will provide the homeowner with a beautiful, smooth surface to be painted. If there are any window panes, the crew will remove and paint, if needed, to bring more flare to your home.
Our professionals are in uniform with a positive and willing attitude to make you happy throughout this process. We not only want to paint or repair your home but everyone on your streets home! So we have other incentives to keep this up as well.
- Inspect entire house for rotten wood or faulty hardware throughout
- Hand and pressure wash entire exterior with plant and human safe solution that helps strip dirt flakey paint off of your house before repair.
- Allow home to dry out. Weather is imperative in this process.
- Demo everything on the inspection list and repair. This includes any vaneer, door, window, fascia, soffit, gutter, any type of siding, window glazing, window screens, roofing, brick, stone, etc.
- When repairing these items we use the best material we can get so further damage isn't an issue for you down the road.
- Apply caulk, glazing, putty, etc. to all joints of windows, doors, etc. around your home.
- Spot prime every repair or major color change around your home
