They were punctual and professional plus very kind to my children (even though I am sure they were a hassle to work around).
Our team of painters did a great job on the exterior of our 2-storey house. Luis, Simon, and Pancho were courteous, detailed, friendly, communicative, careful, clever, and did amazing work perched upon very tall ladders for 10 days. The office team were also responsive and friendly. I'd recommend them to you.
My partner and I are skim coating the texture out of our 2100 sqft home. We probably watched the same videos! and as intimidated as I was to star t, even after finishing just the first room, we have a pretty good handle on how to make it work. Unless you can easily afford to have someone else do it, I think it’s a forgiving enough project for even the most novice homeowner.
This year, blues and grays are in. Other neutral colors like cream, beige, and light green are also popular, especially among homeowners, and brown is always a good choice for those interested in darker hues. Keep in mind that while it’s fine to get creative, you don’t want your property to clash with its surroundings, so it’s best to stick with tried-and-true favorites for exterior painting.

Unpainted redwood, cedar, and cypress siding have the charm of natural color and texture. Instead of painting these, most homeowners prefer to finish the woods with a clear or semi-transparent stain. Beneath paint, these woods have natural resins that may bleed through the surface finish, so they should be sealed before painting.
Interior paint prices are $15 to $50 per gallon. Exterior paint costs $30 to $80 per gallon and is formulated to withstand weather exposure, and resist dirt, moisture, and UV rays.
Yes! Good point Jenn, wrapping the brushed does help so much. Do you watch shark tank? Those guys made the paint brush saver containers, that was such a good idea.
Now, in the likely case that two coats are needed, you’d take the number of gallons and multiply by 1.7 for the second coat. This is the industry standard for second coat coverage, which normally takes 30% less material than the first coat.
