Why Power wash your house, Westbrook Ct

dave's photoFor many of us, our home is our biggest financial investment!

So, doesn’t it make sense to protect that investment?
This blog, Why power wash your house,

Westbrook CT was created to give you the reasons why to power wash your home.

By power washing your house on a regular basis,

say every two years, you are removing dirt, mildew, algae, bird droppings and pollutants that are in the air

. All these things eat away at the stain and paint and end up causing wood damage.
By keeping your home clean you not only protect it, but it retains in beauty and curb appeal.

Maintenance is lower due to healthy wood, your paint and stain job will last longer.

Of course, when looking for a professional to power wash your home, make sure they have the following:
1. Licensed with the Department of Consumer Protection in your state.
2. Make sure they have workers compensation and liability insurances.
3. References upon your request.
Pay attention to how fast they get back to you for an estimate, and make sure they give you a detailed written estimate signed by both of you before work starts.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call me for free professional advice!

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.

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!

How To Prepare A House For Painting, Guilford Ct

The most important part of a paint/stain job is the prep work!  This is a quick blog about how to do this, and I have a link to my video talking about it also.

The first thing you do is power wash the house to remove dirt, mildew, loose paint.  You can rent a power washer for a day and use a eco-friendly solution, just check your local paint store for products to choose from.

Next you want to scrape and sand the siding and trim.  Take your time doing this and be thorough.  After this, you can apply one full coat of high quality primer or you can spot prime in the areas that need it.

Caulk any gaps and holes.

The last thing is to get a high quality product like Benjamin Moore paints and stains and carefully apply two coats.

Here is the link to my video:

Anyone Can Be A Painter, But Not A Professional Painter, Branford Ct

Everyone tries their hand at painting at some point in their life.  The difference between a homeowner painting a room and a professional painter is experience.  This is why I created this article Anyone Can Be A Painter, But Not A Professional Painter, Branford Ct.  Experience is the difference between an “ok” job and a fantastic job!

Your home is one of the biggest, if not biggest financial investment you make in your lifetime. It’s important that you take good care of it.  It takes years to perfect a professional painting job!  One of the biggest concerns is lead.  Homes built before 1978 most likely have lead.  You need to go to lead classes to learn the safest way to remove and dispose of lead in a home to prevent people from getting sick and hurting our enviroment.

It takes years to learn the most efficient and proper way to prep walls, trim, doors to make sure you get the best outcome.  The way you cut in a room matters, the kind of products you use.

All of this takes time and education.  You truly get what you pay for!

For some guidelines on how to hire the right house painting professional and what to look for, give us a call, we are happy to help you!  There are lots of house painters out there, but they are not all the same!

I hope this article Anyone Can Be A Painter But Not A Pro Painter, Branford Ct was helpful!

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

CUSTOM PAINTING GUILFORD CT

CUSTOM PAINTING GUILFORD CT offers all different kinds of painting!  If you are looking to add a special touch to a room, there are alot of ways to accomplish that!

One way is create an “accent wall”, three walls in the room share one shade and then you take one wall and put a fun or bold color on it to help bring together the room and add a little something extra!

Another way is to add texture or design to the wall.  You can do this two ways, buy a textured paint, like suede finish, or you can use regular paint and use a special technique to apply the paint to create a different finish, like ragging, or faux.

Painter in Guilford Ct Reviews Home Depot

Guilford Ct is a beautiful small town with wonderful people and stores.  We have a local hardware store called Page’s Hardware that we would recommend to anyone!  Their service is outstanding!

But sometimes, being a painter, painting contractor, I have to head over to the big box store Home Depot for something that I can’t get in my hometown of Guilford Ct.   As a painting contractor, there are times when I have a big job and it requires a very large order, Home Depot always has paint in stock, so I can call ahead and have the order ready for pick up when I get there.  They also have a special entrance and check out for contractors that I find very helpful and saves me a lot of time.

Home Depot also carries a large variety of tools and lumber.
