Wow 1 Day Painting! Branford Ct

There is a company out there called Wow 1 Day Painting!  They advertise that they can do a job in one day for a customer, while it’s possible they can do a small job, or a room in one day. That’s why we made this blog Wow 1 Day Painting! Branford Ct .  Usually it’s a hook to get their foot in the door of a customer.  

We also offer the same services, we are very exact with what can be done in one day and what can’t be done.  It’s important that the job maintains a high quality standard and doesn’t suffer due to a painter rushing to complete the job in one day simply because they claimed it can be done in one day.  We will let you know exactly how long a job takes, we do that so we uphold a high standard of painting.http://youtu.be/ZkGovwMnMkI?list=UUPqhZXm3tlefzuw_-YJCAPw

How Much To Paint A Room, Madison Ct

Sometimes people will call the office and want a price over the phone to paint a room for them.  It’s not an easy answer!  A lot of the time the customer just doesn’t want to waste our time if we come out and it doesn’t fit their budget.  

First, it’s hard to give a price over the phone because we don’t know what condition the room is in.  Does it need extra patching?  Or extra prep above the norm or maybe it’s a very very easy job that won’t take much time at all.   So, we can end up over pricing or under pricing the job by not seeing it first.  That is why we created this blog ” How Much To Paint A Room, Madison Ct” http://youtu.be/dyZLkiB9yAU?list=UUPqhZXm3tlefzuw_-YJCAPw

How To Remove Wallpaper With Chomp, Madison Ct

People always dread when they know it’s time to take down wallpaper!  They are worried that it will not peel right off and will end up in little tiny strips and pieces!  Well, you don’t have to worry! That’s why we created this blog “How To Remove Wallpaper With Chomp, Madison Ct”  here is a video

We found a really great product that helps up when we need to do a wallpaper removal job!  The product is called “CHOMP” and it’s the best stuff we’ve ever worked with! all you need is a small garden sprayer and some

water and Chomp!  I like to mix equal parts water and Chomp.  Spray the mixture evenly over the wallpaper starting from the top and going down, just a light mist.  Make sure that you have drop cloths on the floor.  Allow the mixture to sit for about five minutes, then start at the top and pull a little corner and gently pull the wallpaper off the wall.  After all the paper is removed, there will most likely be a film of wallpaper paste, so I spray one more application of the Chomp on the wall and wipe if off with a big wet sponge.  This should leave your wall clean and smooth!  If you have some difficult spots or the paper is not coming off in large sheets, you can use a wall paper scoring tool first over the paper and then spray Chomp over the paper, let sit and remove.  If you have any questions or need some professional advice please call us!

How A Professional Painter Does Preparation, Madison Ct

Hi I’m David Moffitt, I’ve been a painting contractor for over 37 years and I have learned that the most important aspect of your paint job is the preparation!  I know that this is a no-brainer, but there is a lot to it!

You need to really check the surfaces before you paint them, check for rotted wood, moisture areas, cracks, holes, uneven surfaces.  Once you outline the areas that need attention, you need to take your time and know how to properly fix these issues.  It does no good to buy the highest quality paint if it’s not going to be applied to a properly prepared surface!  That is why I created this blog ” How a Professional Painter Does Preparation, Madison Ct.http://youtu.be/N2_BifV1c4w?list=UUPqhZXm3tlefzuw_-YJCAPw

Please feel free to call us for a professional estimate/evaluation of your home!  I am happy to walk the job with you and explain things I see and how to fix it!  If you are doing the job yourself, please call if you would like my advice, I am happy to give it!

How A Great Painting Job Gets Done Part 3, Madison Ct

In this article I am going to pick up where I left off at on the previous blog ‘How A Great Painting Job Gets Done Part 2, Madison Ct.  In my previous article I talked about how important it was to check around the house for any rotted/bad wood and remove it and replace with new wood.

After you replace any bad rotted wood, the next step is to power wash the house to remove any dirt and/or mildew.  Let the house dry thoroughly.  Next step is to putty and caulk the trim where it needs it.  Check to see if the windows need re-glazed.  After these steps you want to prime the surface, especially the new wood that was installed.  Be sure to use high quality products like Benjamin Moore.  It is as important as the prep work!

Once the priming is all set, you are ready for the finish coat!  Be sure to use good brushes.

I hope this article helped!  Please feel free to call us with any questions you may have, we are happy to help!

How A Great Painting Job Gets Done Part 1, Madison Ct

It’s one thing to sort through estimates and find the price that fits your budget, but an important factor to getting a great painting job is in the prep work! This is why I created this article “How Great Painting Gets Done, Madison Ct. I  understand that price is important but what good is it to go by price alone if you don’t get a high quality paint job?  It’s like that old saying “Buy for price, buy twice”!  But, you don’t have to worry about that!

https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=j8K3gV_FNZ4

 

Here are a few things to look for in an estimate:

-Make sure they are licensed with the state of Ct

-Make sure they have a lead license

In the estimate, make sure that they detail all the prep work that will get done, like, replace rotted wood.  Scrape and sand. Use a high quality primer, make sure a high quality paint product like Benjamin Moore is used.  Proper putty and caulking should be done.

There should be a clean looking crew that shows up on time and is neat and conscientious.

Without good prep work nothing else matters, it won’t look like a high quality job.

Please feel free to call us at Coastline Painters LLC at 203-458-2073 with any questions, we are happy to talk with you.  I can also come out and give you a free professional home evaluation!
