How To Paint Vinly Siding, Madison Ct

Many people don’t realize that you can paint vinly siding. That’s why we created this blog “How To Paint Vinly Siding, Madison Ct ” to inform you.

Vinyl siding is great, but the color can fade over time and sometimes people would like to change the color.  Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams have high quality paint that is perfect for this.

I have been painting for over 35 years, I have painted houses in Guilford Ct, Branford Ct, Madison Ct and I have painted houses all the way up the shoreline in Ct.  I have painted many vinyl homes.

You need to make sure the house is clean and chalk free.  Then it’s important to pick a high quality paint and of course a great painting contractor!

If you have any questions or need advice, please call us!

There are a lot of ways to save money when you are looking for a painting estimate.  “How To Save Money On Interior Painting, Madison Ct” is set up to give you a few tips.

There are several ways to accomplish this, for interior work the best time to call is in January, this is  when things get slower then other parts of the year, you can have the work booked for that month if the contractor has time, or you can ask to have it scheduled for Feb or March.

PICKING A PAINTER GUILFORD CT

I am writing this article PICKING A PAINTER GUILFORD CT to help give you some guidelines on what to look for in a painter!  Here are a few basics:

1. Make sure they are fully insured with workers compensation insurance 2. Liability insurance 3. commercial auto insurance

2. They must be licensed in the state of Connecticut through the Department of Consumer Protection.  You can go on their website to look up a company name to make sure they hold a current license. They are also suppose to carry a small wallet size card from the state with their license name and number on it.

3.  They must have a lead license.  There are no exceptions to this, this is a serious safety issue!

4. Get a few references, ask where they buy their paint, you can call the paint store to check them out as well!

5. How long have they been in business? This is important!  Will they be around if you need to call them a year down the road?

Another important consideration is time.  How long did it take for them to return your call for an estimate?  How long does it take to get a fully written detailed estimate from them after they meet with you?  The state has guidelines that contractors must follow in their estimates.  They must specify the dollar value of course, and also when they will start the job and how long it will take.  They need their license number on the estimate.  Do they have an office?  Do they have a website that gives you more information about their company?  How about a cell phone number and email?    Some things are not required by the state like a website, but it shows their professionalism and effort to make sure it’s easy to reach them and to give you valuable informaton!  Our website has a blog that we add to everyday with informative articles to educate you about different topics.  We paint houses in Guilford Ct and Madison Ct as well as other neighboring towns!

Wood Repair Guilford Ct

Wood repair in Guilford Ct

It’s important to inspect the exterior trim

On your home each year.  Rotted and loose

trim can cause extensive damage by allowing

Moisture to get in and rot to spread.  The good

News is that you can repair your trim without

the help of a professional if you follow a few

Simple tips:

 

Where to look:  windows, doors and any other

Trim.  Check for cracks, rotting wood, loose

trim boards and holes.  Next, determine

if a small portion the the trim can be

replaced or if you need to replace the entire

board.

 

What to do next: For wood repair,

If the wood isn’t badly

damaged, or not rotting it’s easy to fix.

If you see loose wood, just hammer fresh

nails into the trim board to firmly secure.

 

Cracks  – For wood repair,  remove any old caulk in the cracks,

any dirt or debris.

Then apply fresh silicone caulk in the cracks.

Note:  Make sure the temp outside is between

50-90 degrees before you start to get the best

performance out of your caulk.

 

Patched CracksFor wood repair, exterior wood filler for

Patched cracks in the trim.  First, sand the

area with coarse sandpaper to ensure a

good bond.  After this, apply wood filler with

a putty knife.  After it dries, sand it flush with

medium to fine grit sandpaper.

 

Replacing rotted and damaged trim:  Carefully

Remove the rotted wood with a pry bar.

measure what you removed.

(when you replace this wood, add a few inches to allow

For trimming it and any mistakes in measuring).

You can have the lumber store cut your wood, but it’s

a good idea to have a miter saw to trim it if need be

at home.

Safety Note:  Be sure to read manufacture’s instructions

Carefully when operating power tools! Do not wear

Loose clothing or jewelry.

Installing new trim:   Use nails and a hammer to attach

the new trim wood.  Use a nail set and hammer to get

the nails below the surface of new wood. Cover nail holes

with putty and when it’s dry sand the putty flush with the wood.

 

Painting the new wood

Use a drop cloth to protect the ground and bushes where

you are painting.  You can also use blue tape to tape off

around the exterior of the wood you are painting to protect

the siding.  Make sure to use a high quality enamel or varnish

brush.  Use a high quality paint or stain, it truly makes all the

difference.  Benjamin Moore offers a high quality paint and stain

line.  Apply one coat of primer followed by one or two finish

Coats of paint.
