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!

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.

Window Glazing and Painting Branford Ct

Hi everyone!  We get a lot of calls asking if we do window glazing, and that’s why we created this blog Window Glazing and Painting Branford Ct. Yes, we do!

Window glazing is kind of a lost art, but it is an art and takes know how and skill!  Glazing compound holds the window in place (especially older windows) and keeps weather out!

Basically you remove the old glazing compound which can get hard as a rock, crack and have pieces fall out.  Then you remove old putty.  There is a process to the removal and re-installation of the new glazing compound and putty.  So, I hope this article Window Glazing and Painting Branford Ct helped!

We have been painting in Branford Ct for over 37 years! We also cover Guilford Ct, Madison Ct and all the way up the shoreline!

If you have any questions at all on how this process works, please call us! We are very happy to talk to you and give you all the information you need!  Even if you don’t plan on using our company for your painting needs, please call, we will guide you through the process!dave's photo

PAGE HARDWARE REVIEW, GUILFORD CT

We are painting contractors in a wonderful small town – Guilford Ct and today I want to talk about a great hardware store right on our historic Guilford green, Page’s Hardware.  Page’s Hardware has been serving our community since 1939.

Page’s hardware has a great selection of paint brands and all the things you would need to paint.  But what Page’s hardware really excels at is service! When you walk in the door, you are immediately greeted, no matter if you enter from the front of the store or the back, you are given a friendly hello.  As you proceed in the store, within a few minutes you are approached by a friendly employee asking if you need any help.  Before you leave the store you will be approached and asked a few more times.  Not in an annoying way, but a quick, checking in with the customer to see if you need anything at all.

This is so refreshing and helpful!  If you go to a big box retailer, it’s as if you are in a dessert! Not an employee in sight!  It’s very difficult to get help, you have to walk a country mile around the store to find someone!

Page’s Hardware carries a wide variety of high quality products like housewares, cleansers, hardware, stoves, refrigerators, vacums and much, much more!

I highly recommend this store for any household needs!  You will come away from there wanting to go back!

If you have any questions about paint products or need some professional advice, please feel free to give us a call!  We are here for you! I hope this article PAGE HARDWARE REVIEW, GUILFORD CT was helpful!dave's photo

How To Get A Painting Estimate Guilford CT

dave's photo

When I do a search I will enter my town name and a few towns that are near me so that I get a contractor that is based within thirty minutes from my town, I prefer someone local.

When you start going through the list, pick a contractor in the top half of the first page. Why? This usually is a indication that they are searched out a lot and are more established.  It’s very helpful if they have a website, it shows a comittment to the consumer to disclose as much information about them as possible.

When you call or email the contractor, pay close attention to how long it takes for them to answer you, it should take no longer then 24 hours!  The best response is a same day response!This is an indicator to how fast they will respond when you hire them!

Make sure they have the following information:

1. A Home Improvement Contractor license by the State of Ct (this is mandatory)

2. All painting contractors must have a Lead License! They should have a certificate and Lead      License number

3. Proof of Insurance

4. References

After they meet with you make sure you receive a written estimate within three business days. Make sure on the estimate it outlines how many coats of paint, are dark colors included, are finishes like Eggshell included, what is extra, how long will the job take, when can they start?

These are important questions and everything should be in writing!

Boost Your Home’s Value and Verve with Coastline Carpentry

carpenter in new haven county5 Simple architectural enhancements that pay off

What’s the secret to transforming cookie-cutter into your custom style?  When it comes to your home, light carpentry that adds built-in architectural details make all the difference.  To turn drab into dazzling – and boost your home’s value in the process – try adding one of these exciting accents:

  1. Window Seats. Window seats are beautiful architectural features, and add immense style, comfort, and value to your home.  Maximize your storage potential by creating a hinged bench seat, or consider building storage cubbies beneath.  Pull it together with cushions that match your room’s décor.
  2. Media Shelving. Utilize awkward spaces (and add to the charm of your home) by adding shelves under stair cases, around landings, next to fireplaces, or even under kitchen cabinets.  Such spaces are perfect for organizing and storing books, DVDs, cds, mobile device charging stations and all the necessities of today’s digital age.
  3. Crown Moulding. Add a classic dimension of elegance and warmth to any room with crown moulding.  But DIYers beware: Installing crown moulding can be tricky, particularly when it comes to the cornices.  As always, simple is better.
  4. Bead Board. Bead board is a mainstay in many old houses, lending a classic yet casual look to cabinets, ceilings and decorative wall panels.  With an informal flair, bead board can help you incorporate relaxed cottage styling into any decor.
  5. Flower Boxes. Give your home a floral facelift with a fun flower box!  Painted to match your home’s exterior (or the blooms within), built-in flower boxes will give your home a decorative seasonal boost the whole year through.
